Yeovil Town were badly beaten on Tuesday night, as relegation rivals Port Vale inflicted a 3-0 defeat on them in a six-pointer at Vale Park. The Glovers were out-played throughout the 90 minutes and fell behind when Manny Oyeleke got a free header from a corner. On the hour mark Tom Conlon's 25 yard dipping strike produced the goal of the game, and the match was finished off by substitute Cristian Montano who needed just a minute on the pitch to score his third goal of the season against the Glovers. That defeat left Darren Way's side in deep trouble in 22nd place after Morecambe and Notts County also picked up wins, leaving them just four points off the relegation spots and looking cut off from those above them.
