Yeovil Town Reserves lost 2-1 to their Swindon Town counterparts in a keenly contested and fast-paced Combination League game at Huish Park last night.
The Glovers, fielding their usual combination of squad members, youth team players and a trialist - in this case central midfielder Anton Robinson of Millwall - began the match brightly with Arron Davies and Luciano Alvarez testing the Swindon keeper's reflexes, but as the half wore on the visitors - playing most of the side that featured in their 2-1 League One defeat at Bournemouth last Saturday - began to look more threatening, eventually taking the lead with literally the last kick of the first half when a Kyle Lapham cross was converted from close range by Jamie Cureton. The Glovers equalised on 58 minutes, Efe Sodje heading home from Arron Davies's corner; but a minute later and Swindon were back in front Christian Roberts following up to tap in from a few feet after Steve Collis did well to parry a long-range shot. Matt Harrold had the ball in the back of the net on 70 minutes but the goal was disallowed - presumably the referee knew why, no-one else did. The game degenerated slightly thereafter with some increasingly bizarre referring decisions livening up the small crowd.
Final score: Yeovil Town Reserves 1 - 2 Swindon Town Reserves.
