Yeovil boss explains 'walk-in' goal

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson explains to BBC Spotlight why he allowed Birmingham to walk in a goal in their League Cup second-round clash.

The visitors had kicked the ball out of play following an injury to Dan Burn and Lee Clark's team expected it to be returned to them.

However, Glovers defender Byron Webster received the ball from the throw-in and chipped Blues goalkeeper Colin Doyle, who was still off his line, to make it 2-2 and send the tie into extra time.

After Luke Ayling had made it 3-2 to Yeovil, Johnson said he made the "humble decision" to let Birmingham score unopposed.

The game eventually went to penalties and the Blues progressed.
