Andy Williams scored twice as Yeovil came from behind to beat Brentford and ease their relegation worries.

The Bees took a deserved lead when a long-range free-kick from Sam Saunders took a big deflection and left home goalkeeper Sam Walker wrong-footed.

Williams grabbed an equaliser when he received the ball with his back to goal and spun and shot into the top corner.

With two minutes left Williams bundled home a scrappy winner as Yeovil claimed their fourth successive home victory.


Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"That was a massive result for us as they're decent Brentford.

"We've got to start playing for 90 minutes and then we'll start seeing what a very good team we are.

"I'm pleased for him (Andy Williams) as he turned the game for us in the second-half.

"I appreciate the way he plays and I think he appreciates the way I manage him."

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London:

"That was not a professional level of defending, we should have dealt with the situation much better.

"Today was a big blow for us, the way we started and the way we played the game we were one nil up but we lost it.

"We have to learn by doing, so when we burn our fingers we have to make sure we don't burn them again.

"I thought we learnt a lesson against Colchester but it looks like we have to go through more pain."
