Skivo delighted as Glovers end travel sickness

Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton felt his side thoroughly deserved their first away win of the season at Walsall. And the former Glovers defender was equally pleased to see his team keep only their second clean sheet of the campaign as they triumphed 1-0 thanks to Adam Virgo`s second-half header. "It's our first away win and the first time I can actually say we have kept a clean sheet and scored at the other end," said Skiverton. "It was a really positive performance built on the back of a good result against Southampton in midweek. I think we were very professional and looked strong at the back. "We could have had more than one goal and I was pleased with the response from the boys after the disappointing run we have had. "Our goal was a fantastic header from Adam Virgo and I have said before to defenders that if they can win 90% of their headers in their own box, why don't they win more than 20% in the opposition box?" Skiverton added: "In the last couple of weeks I have been getting a bit down with things and wondering when it would turn around. I have been waiting for the tide to turn and we need to move forward now with the momentum we have started to create."
