Gary Johnson sacked as manager of Yeovil Town

It has been confirmed that Yeovil Town have sacked Gary Johnson as manager of the club.

Chairman John Fry says it was the hardest decision he's ever made at the club:

The decision to relieve Gary of his management duties is the hardest I have been involved in during my 23 years at Huish Park. I cannot speak too highly of the man who in the past brought so much success to our club. We part company on good terms and I would like personally to wish him well for the future.

– John Fry, Yeovil Town Chairman

Gary Johnson's future as manager of Yeovil Town is in doubt. The board are currently meeting to decide on his future.

After a torrid first half to the season, the League 1 side have been rooted to the bottom of the table.

An FA Cup clash against Manchester United bought some much needed cash and publicity, but the side have made no improvement in the league.

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher hopes the hard-fought 2-0 win over Yeovil will be a game to look back on if Louis van Gaal's side go on to win the FA Cup.

A stunning finish from Ander Herrera helped United edge past a resolute Yeovil and into the fourth round.

An out-of-sorts United side, which included captain Wayne Rooney, David De Gea and Radamel Falcao, toiled for over an hour against their struggling hosts until a piece of individual brilliance set them on their way to a 2-0 win.

Herrera marked his FA Cup debut with a thumping 64th-minute effort that left Yeovil goalkeeper Jed Steer clutching at thin air before Angel Di Maria clipped in a second late on.

In an interview with BT Sport 1 Fletcher said "we knew it wasn't going to be easy."

It was going to be difficult with tackles flying in. You have to battle before you win the match and we did that today. We battled for 60, 70 minutes and then Ander scored a spectacular goal and sometimes that's what it takes.

The longer you can keep possession, although it was difficult, the more you tire the opposition out and you can win the game in the last 20 minutes. We knew it was going to be difficult but we're in the draw for the next round."

– Darren Fletcher, Midfielder

The last time Man Utd won the FA Cup was in 2004.

It's been too long since Man Utd have won this competition.

We really want to win it this year and hopefully we'll look back on our result here as one of the most important ones if we go far in the competition.

– Darren Fletcher, Midfielder
