Match Report: Woking v Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town got back to winning ways yesterday afternoon as they saw off Woking 1-0 at the Kingfield Stadium. Charlie Wakefield put Town 1-0 up after 15 minutes as Yeovil were the far superior side in the first half. The second half was a much more nervy affair especially after Mark Little was sent off for a second bookable offence but Yeovil were able to hold on for the win.

Darren Sarll made two changes to the side that was beaten 2-1 by Wrexham last weekend. New loan signing Ben Barclay made his debut and Luke Wilkinson returned to the center of defence as Josh Staunton was out through injury and Jack Robinson dropped to the bench.

Yeovil lined up in a 4-3-3 formation with Mark Little, Luke Wilkinson, Ben Barclay and Morgan Williams in front of Grant Smith. Dale Gorman, Matt Worthington and Jordan Barnett made up the midfield while Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Charlie Wakefield and Tom Knowles lead the attack.

On the bench was Jack Robinson, Alex Bradley, Reuben Reid, Adi Yussuf and Lawson D'Ath.

Woking kicked off towards the seated end.

Yeovil were the much better side throughout the first half and were taking the game to their opponents right from the start.

Woking won the first corner though on the left hand side which was crossed into the center of the box but they put it out for a goal kick.

With just 15 minutes on the clock Yeovil took the lead as a perfect pass from Morgan Williams found Charlie Wakefield who was able to continue his run and slot the ball into the bottom corner.

Woking offered very little up front in the first half as Yeovil were rarely threatened by their opponents. The half was somewhat spoiled though thanks to the referee issuing bookings to Yeovil players who had the plain audacity to put a tackle in. Very soft fouls were punished by the referee but Woking weren't receiving bookings for the same offences.

Yeovil continued to play attacking football but they weren't able to increase their lead and Yeovil went in with a deserved 1-0 advantage at the break.

Half Time: Woking 0-1 Yeovil Town

Woking made a double substitution at half time as Joe McNerney and Soloman Nwabuokei were replaced by Josh Casey and Tarry Allarakhia.

Woking improved in the second half and were making more of a game of it. Grant Smith was called into action on the hour mark as Jamar Loza's effort took a deflection but he was able to claim the ball well.

The home side made their final substitution on 62 minutes as Tyreke Johnson was replaced by Nicke Kamamba.

Just one minute later Yeovil were reduced to 10 men as Mark Little picked up his second booking. This wasn't a suprise to the Yeovil fans as the officials had been booking Yeovil players throughout the game for the slightest thing and now Yeovil had to play just under 30 minutes with a numerical disadvantage.

Yeovil made their first substitution on 64 minutes as Sonny Blu Lo-Everton was replaced by Jack Robinson.

As expected Woking were the side applying more pressure but they weren't able to put Yeovil in any real danger.

They won a corner on 70 minutes which was taken short but Yeovil were able to defend the ball away.

Yeovil made their second substitution on 75 minutes as Tom Knowles was replaced by Adi Yussuf.

Three minutes later Jordan Barnett was replaced by Alex Bradley as Yeovil were aiming to keep things as tight as possible and see the game out.

The final 10 minutes were always going to be nervy but Yeovil were able to deal with the Woking attacks and after the five minutes of added time was up Yeovil could celebrate a hard fought victory.

Full Time: Woking 0-1 Yeovil Town

It was a very well earned win for Yeovil as every player put in a fantastic shift to ensure Woking didn't get the goal they needed. Once again the players and management deserve full credit for picking up the three points yesterday especially with all the uncertainty and trouble going on off the pitch at the moment.

Yeovil's season continues on Tuesday evening as Weymouth visit Huish Park. Kick off is at 7:45PM.
