Halifax 2-3 Yeovil

Kevin Gall grabbed a dramatic last-minute winner to complete a second-half hat-trick as leaders Yeovil came from two-goals down to win against Halifax.

The leaders started positively, and Halifax goalkeeper Lee Butler had to be alert to save from Abdelhalim El Kholti and Gall inside the first two minutes.

But that was as good as it got in the first half for Gary Johnson's side, as Town striker Simon Parke struck twice in two minutes to put his side in control.

Parke headed home from the centre of penalty area on 13 minutes, before doubling the lead almost immediately when he again used his head to convert Brian Quailey's left-wing cross.

But the Glovers dominated after the interval, and produced two quickfire goals of their own from Gall to draw level.

The striker slotted home from close-range four minutes after the restart when Halifax failed to fully clear a Lee Johnson corner, before again taking advantage of some slack defending to level three minutes later.

The hosts had Mark Monington dismissed for two bookings five minutes from time, but looked to have earned a point until Gall slotted home the winner after a poor backpass by Shaun Garnett.
