Yeovil 3-1 Rochdale

Yeovil cruised to victory over struggling Rochdale, who fell deeper into relegation danger.

Jonathan Franks gave the hosts the lead when he pounced on a poor backpass from ex-Glover Kevin Amankwaah and rounded keeper David Lucas.

Richard Hinds stabbed home to double their lead and loanee Michael Woods made it 3-0 from Andy Williams' cross.

Dale earned a consolation goal when Jonathan Grounds hooked into his own net while attempting to clear the ball.


Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"We're not safe mathematically but 50 points in generally safe.

"We had to get three points today because Rochdale heard Walsall were leading at half-time and they knew they had to come out.

"I'm really pleased with the lads' form over the past few months. As long as you're winning more games than you're losing.

"The squad look very happy with their work - you've not got lads who are nicking a living, they're earning a living."
