Fleetwood Town 4-0 Yeovil Town

David Ball
Fleetwood Town striker David Ball has scored seven goals in 29 appearances this season

Two first-half goals from David Ball helped boost Fleetwood's League One play-off chances and condemned bottom club Yeovil to a sixth straight loss.

Nathan Bond nodded Nick Haughton's cross back across goal for Ball to turn in the opener from six yards out.

Yeovil's Joel Grant fired just wide from distance, but Ball doubled the lead from 20 yards out, before he found Jamie Proctor for Fleetwood's third.

Ashley Hunter completed a comfortable win with his first senior goal late on.

Defeat for the visitors leaves them 13 points away from safety, with just five games left to play.
