Yeovil 0-0 Walsall

Yeovil Town missed the chance to move into the League One play-off places as they played out a drab draw with fellow promotion hopefuls Walsall.

Both sides wasted chances with Dan Burn going close with a header for the hosts and Febian Brandy forcing a fine save from Glovers keeper Marek Stech.

Jamie Paterson also curled a shot just wide for the Saddlers and they created the better openings after the break.

Will Grigg shot over from close range and Craig Westcarr headed over late on.

Yeovil, who have now gone five games without a win but are only one point outside the play-offs, felt they should have had a penalty when referee Tim Robinson turned down an appeal when James Hayter clashed with Paul Downing.

Walsall lie ninth, three points and two places behind the Glovers on the back of an 11-match unbeaten run.


Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset

"It's a disappointing result but whether it's disastrous we'll have to wait and see.

"We've got to worry about our form because you can have a game in hand, but if your form's not there then it doesn't mean anything.

"We've got to work very hard to get our mental toughness back.

"We're asking them to bring out their Championship form because if they want to go up they've got to be at that level."
