Any plans Yeovil might have had to get back into the game were more or less ended just 90 seconds into the
second half. A through ball to Scott Murray saw him quickly touch the ball on to Paul HEFFERNAN who just helped
the ball on it's way and past a surprised Chris Weale, who got a hand on the ball, but looked to have been taken
aback by how quickly the move had developed.
Gary Johnson allowed his starting eleven ten minutes of the second half before a whole raft of changes were
made - mainly one-for-one swaps with the players that had failed to perform.
Not that it made much difference - on 57 minutes, City got their third of the afternoon and again simplicity
was the key. Scott Murray was fouled outside the area by Michael Rose, and Christian ROBERTS curled and placed
a shot over the wall, giving Chris Weale little hope of making up the ground.
City substitute Joe Anyinsah dashed down the left wing and forced Wealey into a block on the angle, before
Yeovil had a brief rally. A last ditch tackle stopped Simon Weatherstone getting in a shot, whilst Darren Way's
turn-and-volley shot stretched Steve Philips at last. Kevin Gall had a shot deflected for a corner after a couple
of goalmouth scrambles saw the City defence worried. Adam Lockwood superbly beat his marker on a left wing
cross by chesting the ball down and half-volleying the ball but unfortunately into the side netting.
But that was as good as it got, and Yeovil ended the game well beaten by City. The substitutes did give the
game a bit of a spark, but that spark only came after the game was won and lost. Yeovil failed to impose themselves
on the game, allowed City far too much possession and failed to step up a level when they went behind. Much of the
reasons for that must be acknowledged towards a City side that looked a class above Bournemouth on the previous weekend.
But even if Yeovil would not have been expected to beat a full strength Bristol City side, Gary Johnson will not
have enjoyed seeing his side beaten with a whimper rather than with a bang, and that will account for
why his squad were still out there doing sprint runs up and down the pitch, 30 minutes after the game had ended.
