Crawley Town 0-1 Yeovil Town

Harry Cornick scored a brilliant winner as injury-troubled Yeovil beat Crawley for only their second League Two win since relegation.

The Glovers had 10 players out injured and manager Paul Sturrock was serving a touchline ban.

But midway through the first half Cornick cut in before finding the top corner from 25 yards out.

Crawley had a great chance to level after an hour but captain Sonny Bradley hit the bar with a header.

Crawley Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:

Yates on Crawley v Yeovil

"I can understand the frustrations of a few supporters - I get that. But listen, we are where we are and we are dealing with it.

"I am not going to say it was a good performance because it wasn't - we huffed and puffed and we could have been a couple of goals down.

"Mistakes are creeping in and people are making bad decisions. We had 13 shots at goal today and not worked the keeper. That just sums us up at the moment.

"We can't rely on clean sheets all the time. We are going to make mistakes."
