Yeovil Town slipped to the edge of the League Two relegation zone on Saturday afternoon, after Neal Marmon's first game in charge ended in defeat. The 1-3 home loss saw a positive first half change into a poor second period, with scoring the opener just after the hour mark as his header came in off the post. Stevenage loanee Ben Kennedy's deflected shot gave Newport a two goal advantage, before Yeovil gave themselves a bit of hope as Tom James headed home a near post corner. But former Glover Keanu Marsh-Brown sealed the game on 90 minutes with a near post shot that flew into the top corner, to leave his former side out of the bottom two purely on goal difference, as Notts County gained a shock win at Stevenage.
