Yeovil Town threw away three points this afternoon, as a goal advantage and a man advantage somehow turned into an injury time defeat. When Rhys Browne struck a superb solo goal in the 56th minute, and Paul Digby's crude stamp earned him a red card for Forest Green Rovers twenty minutes later, the Glovers seemed to be on their way to their second home win of the season. But their Gloucestershire opponents ended the final 15 minutes in the ascendancy, and equalised 92 minutes into the match when old boy Reuben Reid slotted home. Incredibly that wasn't the end of it, as George Williams struck a 94th minute goal to win the match for Rovers despite them having ten men on the field - a result that pushes Yeovil down to 20th place in their fourth straight defeat.
