Yeovil Town clocked up their fifth consecutive League One win this afternoon, as they swept aside fellow promotion challengers Brentford at Huish Park. In what was a highly competitive fixture, it was clinical finishing from the Glovers that separated the two sides. Striker Paddy Madden opened the scoring with his 15th goal of the 2012-13 season, whilst that was added to just before the break by a 30 yard Ed Upson strike, with the midfielder celebrating his 100th appearance for the club in style. The game was polished off in the final ten minutes as Dan Burn volleyed home Jamie McAllister's free kick to put his side level with Sheffield United on the final play-off place.
