Yeovil Town went down to their sixth defeat in a row on Saturday afternoon, as play-off chasers Forest Green Rovers picked up a routine 3-0 win. The Glovers saw the damage done during a poor first half that saw Junior Mondal convert from inside the box midway through that half. They doubled their lead on the half hour mark when Christian Doidge headed home at the near post from a corner. Then some woeful defending on the hour mark, as Lee Collins took advantage of another corner that flew through the box without a challenge. Yeovil managed to hit the crossbar through Jake Gray, but their overall play was well behind their opponents on the day, leaving them just one point off relegation, and now in 22nd place in the table.
