Match Report:

For the fourth time this season, Yeovil Town went down to a 0-1 defeat in a home Championship match. Like many that had gone before it, the Glovers had opportunities to win the match against Wigan Athletic, with a solid first half performance producing football that should have put them ahead at the break.

However, the warning signs were there to see as the Glovers had to clear off their own goal-line on four occasions - with two pairs of clearances. Just before the half time whistle, Shane Duffy and Luke Ayling hand to clear off the line from Callum McManaman and Marc-Antoine Fortune. Then in the second period there was another double clearance as Byron Webster and Sam Foley.

Wigan were much improved during the second period, and they sealed all three points when substitute Grant Holt - on the pitch for just one minute - steered the ball across the face of the goal, and Marc-Antoine Fortune converted at the far post. Yeovil remain bottom - and once again will be kicking themselves for not taking the chances that came to them earlier in the game.
