Yeovil Town were forced to settle for a draw against Colchester United on Easter Monday, despite being a goal up with a man advantage. The Glovers appeared to be in the ascendancy ten minutes into the second period, when Jake Gray fired home for his first goal of the 2018-19 season. That opener led to a moment of madness from visiting keeper Dillon Barnes, who kicked out at Tristan Abrahams during the celebrations and was sent off. But despite being down to ten men, the Essex side equalised when Tom Eastman slotted home from a corner with 15 minutes remaining to produce a 1-1 scoreline that probably didn't suit either side, leaving Yeovil still two points from safety.
