In football there was something of a battle of the South West in the women's Superleague. Bristol Academy hosted Yeovil Town Ladies in the Continental Cup. But despite a lot of effort the match ended nil nil.
Yeovil Town Ladies face the biggest game so far of their inaugural season in the Women's Super League. Awarded a place in the competition for the first time this summer, the Glovers Girls have so far made a good impression.
Tonight they face a match dubbed the 'Battle of the South West' as they take on local rivals Bristol Academy. Their opponents came within one game of winning the league title last season and also reached the FA Cup final. But, as Chris Spittles found out, Yeovil are relishing the role of underdogs.
