Yeovil take on Latvia

Yeovil host the Latvia international team at Huish Park tonight. But it isn't the first time the Latvians have played against a club side in this country.

In 1999, when current Yeovil manager Gary Johnson was in charge of Latvia, he took them on a tour of England to showcase their talents - with some earning moves to English teams.

Here's Andy Steggall's report, which was originally shown on ITV Meridian in 1999.

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has raided his old club Bristol City to sign defender Liam Fontaine on loan.

The 27-year-old has joined the Huish Park club until January 1st 2014.

It's the third time Johnson has signed the centre-back. He took the former Fulham trainee on loan in his previous spell as Glovers manager in 2004, and again when he became City boss two years later.

Yeovil Town lost their second round Capital One Cup match against Birmingham in bizarre fashion at Huish Park.

The visitors scored in the 20th minute but had barely time to celebrate before Ed Upson fired home an equaliser.

Birmingham went ahead again just before half time but it was Byron Webster's 90th minute equaliser that opened up the controversy. Birmingham felt the ball should have been returned to them after their goalkeeper kicked the ball out of play following an injury to one of their defenders.

In extra time, Yeovil went ahead thanks to a goal from Luke Ayling and then immediately allowed the visitors to walk in an equaliser, apparently as compensation for Webster's controversial effort.

But Birmingham had the final say - winning the penalty shoot out.

Final score: YEOVIL 3 BIRMINGHAM 3 (2-3 ON PENS)
