So football is set to return to Huish Park this coming Saturday as the Glovers entertain Bristol Rovers in their first home friendly, this time with a noon kick off.

There were also second half sub appearances from Will Agbo, Mitch Brundle and Charlie Ware as Johnson elected to give youth a chance as the game wore on.

Hayter set up Young who blazed over and the Glovers continued to enjoy the bulk of possession and chances. But it took until the 84th minute before the result was sealed when Lewis Young beat the keeper at his near post from a tight angle.

Ten minutes into the second period, Ugwu confirmed his arrival at the club with a second goal. Ince’s driven cross was turned in at the far post by the Reading striker to make it 2-0.

At half time, the Glovers made four changes bringing on Richard Hinds, Curtis Haynes-Brown, Rohan Ince and James Hayter for Byron Webster, Jamie McAllister, Ed Upson and Williams.

But it wasn’t long before the exciting teenager got his Yeovil career off to a successful start. Gavin Williams played a ball into Ugwu who turned his marker and shot left footed into the corner of the net.

And after Lewis Young had shot wide early on, it was Yeovil’s latest signing that went close with a flicked header in the first half.

After beginning the last two matches with a strong looking line up, the manager elected to change his starting eleven tonight. Goalkeeping coach Gareth Stewart began between the sticks and there were starts for Nathan Ralph and new Reading loanee Gozie Ugwu.

As Johnson’s squad develops and nurtures, the boss will be pleased with the result that means his side have netted eleven times and only conceded once so far with all the strikers having scored at last one.

Two goals from Gozie Ugwu and a third from Lewis Young, their first goals of the season, ensured Gary Johnson’s men made it four games without defeat in their second Avenue fixture inside four days following Saturday’s 5-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle.

Yeovil Town continued their impressive pre-season form with a 3-0 victory over Dorchester Town at the Avenue Stadium.
