Cooper: Scunthorpe draw will be best point of season

Yeovil Town boss Mark Cooper described the goalless draw with Scunthorpe United as “the best point” the Glovers will pick up all season.

Cooper was able to name just two outfield substitutes in his matchday squad due to illness and conceded the visitors would have been disappointed not to have taken all three points following a hard fought battle in frosty conditions at Huish Park.

Scunthorpe had big chances to secure a crucial away win in the second half but couldn’t find the net, with Marcus Carver hitting the post, Rob Apter lashing a close range effort wide and Colin Daniel seeing a late effort blocked on the line.

Cooper told BBC Somertset: “They will be disappointed they have not won the game with the chances they had.

“With the way the day unfolded, the lack of numbers and players that played that were ill, it was a resilient performance. I think it is a brilliant point.

“I can’t question the effort and commitment of the players again, it’s another clean sheet and when it’s like that you have to make sure you don’t lose.”
