GLOVERS NEWS: Yeovil Town go down to narrow defeat at Wolves
TO be honest anything had to be an improvement on the embarrassing 8-2 defeat suffered at Luton Town last weekend and to be fair Yeovil Town emerged with some credit from their League Cup exit on Tuesday (August 8, 2017) at Championship outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Glovers went down 1-0 at Molineux having held and thwarted their more illustrious opponents for 76 minutes before Nouha Dicko scored the only goal of the match to see Wolves through to the Second Round of the cup competition.
It was a game of few chances with Wolves getting just four on target and Yeovil only one.
But it was Dicko who broke the hearts of Yeovil’s 440 travelling supporters in the crowd of 9,478 when he headed home from close range following a cross from Jordan Graham.
Wolves had made nine changes to the starting line-up which featured in their 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the Championship on Saturday (August 5, 2017) while Yeovil boss Darren Way – keen to go some way to erasing the painful memories of Kenilworth Road – made three changes.
The result may not have come as a huge shock, but considering it was just by the solitary goal it may have boosted the battered confidence of Yeovil following on from the Luton debacle.
Next up for Yeovil is their first home game of the season at Huish Park on Saturday (August 12, 2017) when Accrington Stanley will be the visitors to South Somerset in a Sky Bet League Two fixture.
