Yeovil's battle to stay in the Championship looks like it will go right down to the wire.

Gary Johnson's team conceded late equalisers in their last two games which cost them valuable wins.

Kevin confesses that they're both "massive mummy's boys" but that his elder sibling enjoys listening to Girls Aloud.
