Your weekend football round-up

LEAGUE ONE

  • PRESTON NORTH END 3 - 2 YEOVIL TOWN

Yeovil have now lost five games in a row after narrowly losing at Deepdale.

The Glovers had taken the lead in the sixth minute. Gozie Ugwu was brought down in the area by Preston goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann, and Gavin Williams scored from the spot. That's how it stayed until half-time.

North End were fired up in the second half and went 2-1 up after goals from Jeffrey Monakana and Chris Beardsley. Yeovil's day then got worse when Ed Upson was sent off for receiving two bookings.

Four minutes from time, debutant defender Dan Burn put the ball into his own net to make it 3-1, but he did make amends by scoring at the right end just a minute later.

Gary Johnson's men almost stole a last minute equaliser, but Bailey Wright cleared off the line, and the home side held on for the win.

LEAGUE TWO

  • EXETER CITY 1 - 2 BRISTOL ROVERS

Bristol Rovers have finally won their first game of the season after beating third-placed Exeter at St James Park.

David Clarkson put The Pirates ahead in the fifth minute. A long ball from Tom Parkes saw Clarkson capitalising on a mistake by Craig Woodman to fire past Artur Krysiak from twelve yards.

Former Rovers striker Jamie Cureton equalised on the stroke of half-time, slotting past a stranded Neil Etheridge.

Elliott Richards hit the winner for the visitors twenty minutes from time. His soft shot managed to beat Krysiak.

And Etheridge made sure of the three points when he saved well from John O’Flynn’s header.

Rene Howe's sixth goal of the season earned Torquay a deserved point at Chesterfield - their sixth draw in nine matches.

The home side went ahead three minutes into the second half with Tendayi Darikwa scoring his first goal for the club.

But the Gulls were level within three minutes. Howe made the most of a mistake by Neal Trotman to coolly finish past Richard O'Donnell in the Chesterfield goal.

  • PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 1 - 1 SOUTHEND UNITED

Plymouth and Southend shared the points in a 1 - 1 draw at Home Park.

Alex MacDonald had put the Pilgrims ahead five minutes into the second half. Guy Madjo pulled the ball back and MacDonald nutmegged Daniel Bentley in the Southend goal.

But they were denied the three points when Britt Assomobalonga beat Darren Purse to equalise just four minutes later.

The visitors ended the match with 10 men after substitute Barry Corr was dismissed following a clash with Purse.

Argyle have now opened the scoring in their last three home games, yet come away only with two points in total.
