The FA Cup - Second Round

Yeovil Town 1-0 Stevenage

Ben Tozer's late strike knocked Stevenage out of the FA Cup as Yeovil interim manager Darren Way's first game in temporary charge ended in victory.

The visitors matched their hosts for most of the second round tie with Michael Tonge's shot tipped onto the bar by keeper Chris Day early on.

But with four minutes left a Yeovil corner fell to Shaun Jeffers who teed up right-back Tozer to drive in.

Day's flying save then denied Tom Pett a last-gasp equaliser.

Stevenage manager Teddy Sheringham told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"We are in a precarious position. We need to get out of it, be more ruthless with our chances and put games to bed.

"It's hard to believe I'm saying that we lost the game because I felt a draw was the least we deserved. To lose the game and go out the FA Cup like that is a bit soul destroying.

"It didn't feel like we were under any pressure at all and controlling the game, so it's very disappointing."
