LEAGUE ONE

  • YEOVIL TOWN 3 - 0 BRENTFORD

Yeovil Town claimed their fifth successive league win with a 3-0 victory over Brentford at Huish Park.

Brentford were the better side in the first half, so it was against the run of play when the hosts took the lead. Top scorer Paddy Madden fired in his 15th goal of the season in the 33rd minute.

Five minutes before half-time it was 2-0. Ed Upson let fly with a 30 yard screamer that flew into the top corner.

The third goal came late in the game. Jamie McAllister's free-kick was volleyed home by Dan Burn.

The Glovers remain 7th in the table, but are level on points with Sheffield United who occupy the final play-off position.

LEAGUE TWO

Exeter City failed to break the deadlock against lowly Aldershot.

The visitors had the best chance of the first half when debutant Asa Hall’s header cannoned off the crossbar.

Both teams had goals disallowed in the second half. Hall was judged to have fouled Kevin Amankwaah, while Guillem Bauza was flagged for offside.

Aldershot's Oliver Risser almost hit a late winner, but his volley from the edge of the area was straight into the hands of Krysiak.

No goals as well at Home Park where Plymouth Argyle had a second consecutive goal-less draw.

The visitors had the first real chance of the match, but Luke Howell headed Femi Ilesanmi’s cross wide.

Argyle began to take control with new loan signing Jason Banton's crosses causing problems. Ronan Murray hit the bar from one, and Reuben Reid headed wide from another. Banton then had a shot of his own, which was saved by Chris Lewington.

The Pilgrims kept up the pressure in the second half. Reid’s goalbound shot was cleared off the line by Ilesanmi.

But John Sheridan's men couldn't find the winning goal.

The draw at least moves Argyle out of the relegation zone - they're level on points with Barnet who lost 2-1 at Bristol Rovers on Friday night.

Torquay United lost at high-flying Cheltenham, and manager Martin Ling again missed the match through illness.

The home side opened the scoring just after the half-hour. Kaid Mohamed's corner was headed home by defender Keith Lowe.

The Robins doubled their lead early in the second half. Shaun Harrad turned and struck the ball past Michael Poke.

Rene Howe pulled a goal back for Torquay two minutes from the end, but the hosts held on for the three points, which moves them into the automatic promotion places. The Gulls slip down to 16th.
