GLOVERS NEWS: Vital point for Yeovil Town on the road
THE most important thing of all when playing teams below you in the table is not to lose against them to allow them to close the gap on you and so Yeovil Town should be pleased with the point they gained on Saturday (February 10, 2018) in the away match at Crewe Alexandra.
The Glovers went into the Sky Bet League Two clash hoping to make it a hat-trick of important league wins following successive victories over Grimsby Town and Cambridge United.
But it was not to be as the game finished 0-0 although Crewe went close on two occasions when they saw efforts come back off the woodwork.
Harry Pickering saw a corner kick touched onto the bar by Yeovil keeper Artur Krysiak and out for a corner in the closing stages of the first-half and then saw a free-kick hit the woodwork in the second period.
Yeovil lost defender Nathan Smith to an injury during the half-time break and then were forced to take off Kyrsiak, with a leg injury, and be replaced by substitute keeper Jonny Maddison on 51 minutes.
Sam Surridge, who had come on as a sub for Yeovil in place of Sam Seager midway through the second period, did get the ball in the back of the net for the Glovers, but play had already been stopped because of an off-side infringement.
It was not a pretty game and although Yeovil will be pleased with a point the statistics do not lie and it was a disappointment that they did not register a single lawful shot on target.
But the result and those elsewhere saw Yeovil remain in 18th spot in the table and eight points clear of the drop zone.
There will be concerns over the injuries to Nathan Smith and Artur Krysiak, but the Glovers will be pleased to have made it three successive League Two clean sheets.
Next up for Yeovil Town is a home game against Barnet, currently bottom of the League Two table, at Huish Park on Tuesday (February 13, 2018).
