Positive Glovers please Slade

Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade hailed his side's character as they hit back to reach the League One play-off final by beating Nottingham Forest. The Glovers had appeared to have lost the tie when they crashed to a 2-0 home defeat in the first leg, but produced an inspired display to win through 5-4 on aggregate after securing a 5-2 victory at the City Ground. "The players have a belief in each other and a terrific spirit and that showed," said Slade. "We had a game plan - to be positive - and we did that throughout the match. "It was a classic and a fantastic game to be part of it, but it was heart attack material as well."
