Yeovil Town gained their first back-to-back League Two wins for fourteen months this afternoon, as two second half goals defeated Cheltenham Town. After a tight opening period, the Glovers took the lead from an unlikely source as defender Omar Sowunmi crashed a loose ball off the underside of the crossbar for an opening 69th minute goal. The game was sealed five minutes from time when Jordan Green caught Cheltenham on the counter-attack, slotting home for a 0-2 win that represented the club's first pair of consecutive wins since October 2016, keeping them in 19th place but crucially seven points away from the relegation spots.
