LEAGUE ONE

  • YEOVIL TOWN 4 - 1 OLDHAM ATHLETIC

Yeovil move into the top half of the table after coming from behind to ease past Oldham at a wet Huish Park.

The visitors took a shock third minute lead through Jose Baxter's header, but the home side turned the game around before half-time.

In the 39th minute Ed Upson was fouled in the area and Gavin Williams confidently converted the spot kick.

Williams scored a superb second just five minutes later. He ran from the halfway line, beat two defenders, before firing an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.

Strikers James Hayter and Paddy Madden added further goals after the break, and Oldham also had Robbie Simpson sent off for a foul on Marek Stech late in the game.

LEAGUE TWO

Plymouth picked up a point at Accrington, but it was so nearly all three after Accrington goalkeeper Paul Rachubka saved Warren Feeney's late penalty.

Argyle took the lead just before the half hour mark. Robbie Williams' free-kick struck a post, and the ball fell kindly for Onismor Bhasera, who reacted first to the loose ball.

Former Everton and Southampton striker James Beattie equalised early in the second half, and the hosts could have gone ahead if it wasn't for some vital saves by Rene Gilmartin.It was then Rachubka's turn to keep his side in the game. He saved Feeney's spot-kick, awarded for a foul on Paris Cowan-Hall.

But the goalkeeper's joy was short-lived. After a late brawl, the Leeds United loanee was sent off for headbutting Nick Chadwick.
