Yeovil Town v Weston-super-Mare AFC

Yeovil Town 2 - 1 Weston-super-Mare AFC
20 Feb 2024 - 19:45Huish Park

In front of 208 away supporters, Weston almost came away with a point against Yeovil Town as the hosts won 2-1.

Yeovil broke the deadlock inside the first 60 seconds when they won the ball from Weston in midfield and worked it to Jordan Stevens down the right inside the area, whose low cross was flicked in by the heel of Sam Pearson.

Max Harris then denied Pearson with his foot following a reverse pass into the forward from a fellow Yeovil forward.

The Seagulls were to level midway through the half when a long Lloyd Humphries pass found the run of Jacob Jagger Cane, who got the better of Morgan Williams and calmly sidefooted his effort over the onrushing Joe Day and into the back of the net for 1-1.

Jordan Young then swept a low shot wide of the far post from the edge of the area following Will Dawes’ low pass across, before Rex Mannings volleyed an 25-yard shot wide of the near post when the ball dropped in his direction. Sonny Blu Lo-Everton then sliced a shot wide from 18 yards following Smith’s low cross being cleared away to him in space. Humphries then headed a free-kick over the bar from captain Dayle Grubb in the final attack of the half.

In the second period, Pearson again had the half’s first shot when he brought the ball down from a long Williams pass, before firing over the target on his left foot. Grubb then saw a left-footed shot from 25 yards beaten away by Day, while Jordan Young saw an angled drive on his right foot beaten away by Harris.

Grubb drove a 25-yard free-kick over the bar from a central position, before Yeovil substitute Frank Nouble saw a 25-yard effort beaten away by Harris.

The winner was to come for Yeovil inside the final 10 minutes of normal time when Williams rose to win a floated corner kick, his powerful downward header beating Harris and the defenders on line for pace.
