Notts County 1-2 Yeovil

Yeovil moved back into the play-off places with victory over Notts County.

The Glovers went ahead in first-half stoppage time when Paddy Madden pounced on the rebound after Fabian Spiess had saved smartly from Matt Dolan.

County equalised just after the break through a penalty from Alan Judge after the midfielder was fouled by Dan Burn.

Dolan's fiercely-struck free-kick restored Yeovil's lead and then Jeff Hughes missed a guilt-edged chance to draw the Magpies level.

The victory ended Yeovil's run of five matches without a win and puts them two points above seventh-placed Tranmere, with a game in hand.

Notts County manager Chris Kiwomya told BBC Radio Nottingham:

Kiwomya rues Notts missed chances

"I thought today, in the second half, we were the better team, created the better chances and probably should have at least got a draw - if we converted those chances.

"It's a difficult pitch to play on - you have to get to grips with that.

"Yeovil did and their second goal - which came from a very good set piece - was the difference.

"There will be changes in the summer and my priority will be in the forward area. We fell short on that situation today."

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

Johnson relishes 'crucial' win

"It is definitely a crucial three points. When results go your way you've got to take advantage.

"Some of the players who haven't played that well in recent games came up trumps.

"There's still five games to go and 15 points to play for. We've got to keep going and keep fighting.

"The crowd were super today so we're doing it for them."
