Notts County 1-2 Yeovil Town

Yeovil scored two goals in the last six minutes as they beat Notts County to move off the bottom of League One.

Midfielder Gary Jones was sent-off for a two-footed tackle as the hosts were reduced to 10 men, while assistant boss Greg Abbott was sent to the stands.

Mike Petrasso latched onto a poor backpass to give Notts the lead.

Jordan Clarke scored twice late on as his near-post header pulled Yeovil level and his second header deflected in off the post for a dramatic win.

Derry on Notts County v Yeovil

"I am not going to discuss the sending off because it will get me into trouble. I don't know what words I can say apart from I'm proud of the team once again.

"I thought we looked really good on the break and it's disappointing to lose.

"We will be appealing the sending off. I really don't know what to say when something like that goes against us."

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"I was a bit disappointed we didn't really create enough at 11 versus 11 or 10 versus 11, but it took their goal for us to suddenly say 'hold on a minute we have got to get this back'.

"I thought by that point the boys upped it a little bit and looked like it was 11 versus 10 by that point so their they're disappointed, they could have gone up into the top two maybe.

"But we have come down here and got our two goals that was needed to win the game."
