Embarrassed by Yeovil

Salop went into the first of 2 home games but it seemed nobody told the players how important this game was. Now we are going to try and find some positives from tonight but if we can’t we’ll try and be as upbeat as possible.

1st Half
Salop started the game lively with a good passing game but it only took Yeovil 8 minutes to find the net. A free-kick left Paddy Madden unmarked in the box to head home to send the Glovers 1-0 up. And you have to question the marking as Madden was the smallest player in that box and wasn’t even picked up.
Weale v Yeovil
Weale wonders about his defense in front of him after Yeovil take the lead.

Even though this was the kick up the backside Salop needed, they just didn’t get going with Hall having the best chance of the half but his header was miles over. That is about as good as it got for Salop and people were already talking about which striker could come on and bring some flare to the team.

Half Time: Salop 0-1 Yeovil

Second half and Turner decided to bring Winnall off (Hamstring) and super Taylor came on to try and liven the team up. And this seemed to work with Hall having the best chance but his long range effort carried no pace and the keeper had to go and meet the ball.

A few minutes later, Hayter converted the ball from a great cross by Brown to put Yeovil 2-0 up. This was greeted with boos from a few of the Salop regulars which was understandable.

After this, Turner subbed frustrating Gornell off to be replaced by Bradshaw. This decision was scrutinized by the Salop faithful. Many were questioning why Turner was taking another striker off for a striker when the score was 2-0. Maybe it would have been better to take one of the defense or midfielders off for a striker to try and pull a goal back.

GT in thought
Turner wonders where it all went wrong.

But soon after it was pretty much game over as Madden got his second goal of the match as our defense went missing again and Weale was left helpless as Madden directed his header into the empty net. The boo boys suddenly become louder and many walked out venting their frustration towards the players. The Yeovil fans were delirious and their bell ringer was getting louder and louder as their team had just secured a second win back to back.

Salop did get a little bit of hope with 10 minutes to go as Bradshaw was fouled resulting in Town being awarded a penalty.

The result was in captured by us in video.

But with the team now looking to find 2 goals from somewhere, it seemed as though a point was still possible. But they just could not break down that Yeovil defense. Turner even resulted in taking Hall of to be replaced by Purdie and tried to push Grandison up front. This didn’t work out like everyone wished.

And when the final whistle went, the boos sounded again and the fans made their way home annoyed and upset.

Now we know it was a tough game to watch but we would still like your thoughts and vote for your #BlueArmyMOM so send us your thoughts in the usual medium of twitter and also vote for your man of the match on our #BlueArmyMOM page
