Your weekend football round-up

LEAGUE ONE

  • YEOVIL TOWN 2 - 1 BURY

Yeovil beat bottom club Bury at Huish Park and were helped by the dismissal of Zac Thompson.

Thompson was shown a straight red in the 27th minute for a two-footed lunge on Keanu Marsh-Brown.

The Glovers made the numerical advantage count almost immediately, as Byron Webster gave them the lead just 6 minutes later. Matt Doherty's attempted clearance hit the Yeovil defender and flew into the back of the net.

Dominic Poleon's close range strike levelled the scores in the 74th minute, but Sam Foley secured Yeovil's second successive home win when he bundled in Ed Upson's corner two minutes later.

LEAGUE TWO

  • BRISTOL ROVERS 3 - 2 TORQUAY UNITED

Torquay fought back from two goals down with ten men, but they couldn't hold on and Rovers made it back-to-back home wins.

It was a dream start for the home side. Tom Eaves opened the scoring with a delightful chip in the 15th minute, before Matt Lund's free-kick doubled their advantage just two minutes later.

Torquay's day was made worse when Joe Oastler was sent off for receiving two bookings with only half an hour played.

Manager Martin Ling tore into his players at half-time, and they came out fighting in the second half.

Rene Howe soon pulled a goal back - his goal equalling a club record of scoring in 7 consecutive league games. And former Rovers player Aaron Downes headed in the equaliser 6 minutes later.

Mark McGhee's men finally made the extra man count when Eaves fired home his second goal of the afternoon fifteen minutes from time.

  • PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 3 - 1 ROCHDALE

Two Guy Madjo penalties helped Argyle to victory against Rochdale at Home Park.

His first came after just four minutes when Ryan Edwards handled in the box, and his second was in the final minute after Edwards fouled Joe Lennox.

Just like last week at Barnet, the Pilgrims went further ahead within minutes of their opener. Paris Cowan-Hall’s cross was headed in by Andres Gurrieri.

The visitors missed a penalty of their own when Jake Cole saved Bobby Grant’s kick, but they pulled a goal back through veteran Dele Adebola's close-range header.

Madjo's second penalty eased home fans' nerves, as Argyle recorded back-to-back wins and move up to 15th in the table.

  • EXETER CITY 0 - 1 CHESTERFIELD

It's now three straight defeats for Exeter City, who lost 1-0 at home to Chesterfield.

The only goal of the game was scored in the 32nd minute when Craig Westcarr's cross was headed in by Chris Atkinson.

Scot Bennett missed a great chance to level in the second half, but the unmarked central defender headed over the bar from 6 yards.

Late in the game, the Grecians piled on the pressure. Guillem Bauza tested goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell with a superb 30 yard strike. Then Bennett’s powerful header was blocked on the line, before Liam Sercombe’s fierce 18 yard drive was superbly saved.
