Match Report: Yeovil Town v Wealdstone

Yeovil Town were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw with Wealdstone at Huish Park this afternoon who had to play over 50 minutes with 10 men. Alex Dyer was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Sonny Blu Lo-Everton but Yeovil weren't able to make the numerical advantage count and were forced to share the points.

Charlie Lee made five changes to the side that lost at Halifax on Saturday. Max Hunt, Jordan Barnett, Dale Gorman and Reuben Reid all dropped to the bench while Mark Little was dropped. Matt Worthington, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Jack Robinson, Ben Barclay and Adi Yussuf came in in their places.

Yeovil opted for a 4-4-2 formation with Jack Robinson, Luke Wilkinson, Ben Barclay and Morgan Williams in front of Grant Smith. Tom Knowles, Matt Worthington, Lawson D'Ath and Sonny Blu Lo-Everton made up the midfield while Reuben Reid and Josh Neufville lead the attack.

On the bench was Jordan Barnett, Max Hunt, Dale Gorman, Reuben Reid and Alex Bradley.

Wealdstone kicked off towards the home end.

The first half was a fairly even affair with both sides playing attacking football. Yeovil thought they had taken the lead after 12 minutes after a looping ball into the box from Lawson D'Ath caused Wealdstone problems but the goal was ruled out for a foul on the keeper.

Both sides continued to push forwards and Yeovil almost gave away a howler of an own goal on 25 minutes as Lawson D'Ath made a pass back to Grant Smith who mis-controlled the ball and it almost rolled into the back of the net but fortunately it went wide of the post. The resulting corner came to nothing.

Three minutes later Wealdstone were very unlucky not to have taken the lead as three close range shots were all blocked on the line in quick succession before the ball eventually went out for a goal kick.

The away side had the momentum in the game and again came close to taking the lead on 35 minutes when a corner from the left hand side was headed onto the crossbar by Jack Cook.

Suddenly the game shifted in Yeovil's favour as Wealdstone were reduced to 10 men as Alex Dyer was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Sonny Blu Lo-Everton.

Due to numerous breaks in play during the half six minutes were added on and the teams went in level at the break.

Half Time: Yeovil Town 0-0 Wealdstone

As was to be expected Yeovil had more of the play in the second half as they tried to make their numerical advantage count.

Yeovil made their first substitution on 55 minutes as Adi Yussuf was replaced by Reuben Reid.

8 minutes later both sides made substitutions as Matt Worthington was replaced by Dale Gorman and Joshua Umerah was replaced by Ashley Charles for Wealdstone.

Dale Gorman had a chance to make an immediate impact on the game as Yeovil were awarded a free kick 25 yards from goal but his low shot to the bottom corner was parried away by Stuart Howes.

Wealdstone made their second and last substitution on 69 minutes as Charles Clayden was replaced by Stephan Browne.

On 72 minutes Josh Neufville unleased a cracking shot from 25 yards after Reuben Reid flicked the ball into his path but the shot was just over.

Yeovil made their final substitution on 79 minutes as Sonny Blu Lo-Everton was replaced by Alex Bradley.

With 8 minutes to go the away side almost nicked the lead as a long range shot from Jack Cook was dipping into the top corner but Grant Smith was able to make the save.

Five minutes of time was added on but Yeovil couldn't find a way through and the points were shared.

Full Time: Yeovil Town 0-0 Wealdstone

This game had a real end of season feel to it and it was a disappointing result given that we were playing a part time team with 10 men and couldn't break them down. We need to be more ruthless in front of goal which has often been a problem for us this season.

Yeovil's season continues on Saturday afternoon as Boreham Wood travel to Huish Park. Kick off is at 3:00PM
