Swindon Town 0-1 Yeovil Town

James Berrett
Yeovil Town's James Berrett had not scored a goal since 22 March 2014

James Berrett's strike handed already-relegated Yeovil a shock win at promotion-chasing Swindon Town.

Ben Gladwin curled a right-footed shot against the post from outside the box as the Robins dominated early on.

But the Glovers took a surprise lead when Berrett shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Josh Sheehan sliced the ball off the line and onto his own crossbar to clear for Yeovil before Swindon had a penalty claim dismissed late on.

The defeat saw Swindon remain in fourth place, now seven points behind second-placed Preston.

Already-relegated Yeovil have now won two and drawn one of their three games under new manager Paul Sturrock, but still occupy the bottom spot in League One.

Cooper on Swindon v Yeovil

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"When you have that many players off colour you can't expect to win a game.

"We didn't do enough today in the final third, we were poor.

"Yeovil come here and get people behind the ball. They're fully entitled to do that.

"We've picked a bad time to fluff our chance."
