Yeovil Town 1-0 Accrington Stanley

Ryan Dickson's goal sealed victory against Accrington Stanley for Yeovil Town, who moved six points clear of the League Two relegation places.

Dickson tracked Francois Zoko's through-ball and the defender slotted beyond Ross Etheridge for the deciding goal midway through the second half.

Accrington had gone close when Billy Kee was denied by a smart save by Glovers goalkeeper Artur Krysiak.

Krysiak went on to deny Shay McCartan and Sean McConville as Yeovil hung on.

Darren Way's hosts are now unbeaten in four with back-to-back wins, while Accrington stay fourth.
