Gary Johnson Returns To Yeovil Townby Steve Claridge / 10 January 2012, 09:56Tweet
Gary Johnson has been confirmed as the new manager of League One side Yeovil. The 56-year-old returns for his second spell at Huish Park and replaces boss Terry Skiverton, who will now work as his assistant. Johnson has been out of work since quitting Northampton Town in November and was recently linked with a move to Bristol Rovers.
Johnson managed Yeovil from 2001 until 2005, winning the FA Trophy and taking the club from the Conference up to League One during that period. He left to join Bristol City, and has since had brief spells in charge of Peterborough United and Northampton Town.
Yeovil are currently 21st in League One with 21 points from 24 games. They are winless from their last five matches in all competitions and are in desperate need of some inspiration to get themselves out of the relegation zone and up the table. On Tuesday they travel to high-flying Sheffield United. The Blades are the odds-on 2/5 favourites with Paddy Power, while Yeovil have been handed long odds of 7/1 to come away with the win. A draw is available at 16/5.
