Match Report - Yeovil Town v Solihull Moors

Yeovil Town claimed a 0-0 draw at Huish Park this afternoon in a game of very few chances. It was a scrappy game where Yeovil struggled to play flowing football and with Solihull set up to be very physical it turned out to be a very dull affair.

Darren Sarll made two changes to the side that won at Torquay on New Years Day. The suspended Chris Dagnall was replaced by Rhys Murphy and Myles Hippolyte was replaced by Lawson D'Ath.

The first half was very un-eventful as neither side created any real opportunities.

The only thing worth noting during the first half was Lawson D'Ath had to be replaced on 8 minutes after sustaining an injury. He was replaced by Myles Hippolyte.

Half Time - Yeovil Town 0-0 Solihull Moors

The second half started very late as a floodlight failure delayed the kick off. Smoke appeared to be coming from the floodlight pillar at the far end of the ground next to the away supporters. The fire brigade was called and eventually power was restored with the match re-starting at 4.30PM.

The second half was no better than the first in terms of chances and creativity. Solihull had set themselves up perfectly to frustrate the home side and disrupt Yeovil's play.

Yeovil did have a brief spell where they were able to pin Solihull back but the final product was lacking.

A penalty shout for Yeovil on 79 minutes was waved away by the referee and the final 10 minutes passed without incident.

Full Time - Yeovil Town 0-0 Solihull Moors

Not much can be said about the match today as it was one of those days where Yeovil couldn't assert themselves into the match. 0-0 was a true reflection of the match and it was good that we were able to get a point against a fellow promotion contender. The biggest cheer from the home crowd today was when the floodlight issue was resolved - says it all really!

The point leaves Yeovil in second place but we've lost ground on leaders Barrow who thumped struggling Ebbsfleet 7-0. Bromley lost 2-1 at Notts County which means they slip down to 4th but Harrogate Town's charge up the table continued thanks to a 1-0 win against Maidenhead which puts them level on points with us.
