Yeovil Town 1-2 Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers scored two injury-time goals to snatch a 2-1 League Two win over Yeovil.

Reuben Reid and then George Williams found the back of the net after 90 minutes despite having had Paul Digby sent off earlier in the second half.

Yeovil took the lead in the 56th minute when substitute Rhys Browne scored in controversial circumstances, colliding with Joseph Mills before going into the box and finding the top corner.

Rovers reacted angrily and manager Mark Cooper briefly took his players to the sidelines in protest and once the game restarted that anger bubbled over on 76 minutes when Digby stamped on Alefe Santos and was shown a straight red card.

Then in the 92nd minute, Theo Archibald sent a low cross into the box, which Reid bundled in at the far post and just two minutes later Williams, who had also come off the bench, ran into the box and saw his deflected shot find the back of the net.
