3 November 2018 : Morecambe 2 Yeovil 1 : Match Statistics
Yeovil Town went down to defeat on Saturday afternoon despite a late rally against Morecambe at the Globe Arena. They were trailing by a couple of goals, after former Glover AJ Leitch-Smith fired into the top corner, followed by a goal from Rhys Oates early in the second period. Yeovil had been sluggish for the first hour, but when Scunthorpe United striker Olufela Olomola netted his third goal of the season, that set up a grandstand final 20 minutes. However, the Shrimps survived the late charge, with Omari Patrick hitting the post in second half injury time, meaning that Yeovil went down to a 2-1 defeat, slipping to 14th in the League Two table as a result.
