Thanks to Ryan Jones for the following report from Weston!

Tom Knowles rescued a draw by the seaside this afternoon as Yeovil Town came from behind after a stunning free kick from Dale Grubb.

The afternoon was marred by an injury to Reuben Reid which saw him forced off in the second half.

First Half

Bright start from Yeovil, good work from Quigley brought the ball inside the penalty area. The ball fell to Ismail whose tame shot was easily saved.

Quigley and Reid linking up well and Ismail was being used as a good outlet particularly on the break.

Town had other chances throughout the half with Worthington hitting a shot straight at the keeper after good play from Reid.

Reid also had a shot that sailed over the keeper after beating his marker. Weston also had a few chances in an entertaining first half with a couple of shots whistling past the post.

They also forced a fair few corners which the impressive looking Yeovil defence were able to keep at bay.

Half Time: Weston-super-Mare 0 Yeovil Town 0

Second Half

After a slightly more measured start to the second half, Weston took the lead with a stunning free kick from Dayle Grubb.

Around about 5 minutes later, Reid was running through on goal from the right hand side. Just as he looked as though he was about to shoot on goal, he fell to the ground and had to be helped from the field and substituted due to injury.

The game fell into a lull for a little while with Weston seemingly taking control of the game and Yeovil not able to get anything going.

Weston had a good opportunity to double their advantage with a good strike which clipped the crossbar. Yeovil then equalised shortly after.

Lo-Everton (Trialist) played a good one-two with Wakefield before playing the ball to Knowles who cut inside and his well placed right footed shot flew past the Weston keeper.

Shortly after, Dale Gorman had a free kick which flew over the bar.

Team: Smith, Bradley, Staunton, Hunt (Williams) Barnett, Gorman, Trialist (Wakefield, then replaced by Trialist, Worthington (Simper) Knowles, Quigley, Reid (Trialist)
