Yeovil   2 - 1   Exeter

Yeovil 2-1 Exeter

Yeovil 2-1 Exeter

Ryan Mason struck the winner to secure victory for Yeovil over Exeter.

The Glovers took the lead when JP Kalala floated a free-kick into the box and Stefan Stam got his head to the ball before keeper Paul Jones.

City equalised when Ryan Harley crossed from the left and former Yeovil man Adam Stansfield tucked the ball in.

But Yeovil regained the lead when a shot by Sam Williams was blocked and the ball rebounded kindly for Mason to knock in from close range.


Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

"I'm sat here really pleased to say we had an ugly win today, where we've had to ride our luck at times and defend well.

"With the way the other results went it was vital that we got three points especially in the manner we were beaten in our two away games.

"I'm not looking at anything apart from not getting relegated this year, that's the priority of this football club."

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"We knew how difficult it was going to be, they're all difficult at this level as there's no easy games.

"What we're discovering is that scoring the first goal is so important. We knew how we applied ourselves last week at a goal up to hang onto what we had and I suppose Yeovil had the same spirit today.

"The disappointment of the game was that if you look at the performance, we didn't deserve to be a goal down at half-time."
