GLOVERS NEWS: Good win for Yeovil Town over the Sky Blues
YEOVIL Town chalked-up a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Coventry City at Huish Park on Saturday (August 26, 2017) in the Sky Bet League Two.
The Glovers, following on from the previous weekend’s hugely-disappointing 4-3 defeat at Forest Green Rovers, were determined to bounce back to winning ways and to show fans what they can do.
Yeovil’s new loan signing from Millwall, centre-half Sid Nelson, soon found himself in the thick of things or, should we say, found himself in the referee’s notebook with a yellow card on 15 minutes following a bad tackle.
Coventry had a couple of cracks at goal early on, but it was Yeovil who broke the deadlock on 27 minutes when Rhys Browne netted with a right-footed shot with the goal at his mercy after a defensive mix-up in the visiting defence.
It was not until the 75th minute when Yeovil secured the three points – although some would argue that a win for the Glovers is never guaranteed these days until the actual final whistle – when Olufela Olomola netted.
The win bounced Yeovil back up the League Table to 12th spot and while the three points were most welcome, it was also good to see the Glovers earn their first clean sheet of the campaign.
The crowd was 3,754 although this was buoyed by a large travelling contingent of Coventry City fans.
The Glovers have a trio of important League Two games coming up with a trip to Crawley Town next Saturday (September 2, 2017) and then a Huish Park double-header on Saturday, September 9, 2017, with the visit of old boss Gary Johnson and his Cheltenham Town side and then on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, with Morecambe making the long trip to South Somerset.
A decent return in those fixtures could point to which way Yeovil’s season – having now won two and lost two in their opening four games of the campaign – could go.
Before that the Glovers are away at Exeter City on Tuesday (August 29, 2017) in an EFL Trophy match. Exeter went top of the League Two table on Saturday after a 4-3 win at Cheltenham.
