Match Report:

Well done Yeovil. Well done Yeovil Supporters.

Nothing really positive to say about this game from a Diamonds perspective. Little urgency, which was surprising with the rewards at stake. Hard working performances from West and DE Souza upfront without any real penetration. A good first twenty minutes and chances to go into a lead, all missed. Two chances though that fell to Yeovil were well taken and from then on Diamonds were struggling to get back into the game. In the second half Diamonds had nearly all of the possession, but it was only in the last five minutes that they exerted any pressure in the box, resulting in a well taken goal for West and a goal disallowed for a supposed foul on the keeper. It does however seem a sorry state of affairs when we have to bring Chris Whyte on as a forward when we have a squad of 25+ players! See you next season Yeovil!
