TOUR DEFEAT

13 July 2013

Yeovil Town suffered a 2-0 defeat to Sporting Club Farense in a pre-season match played at their training camp in Portugal.

In a niggly first half the Portuguese side were clearly the more dominant but Yeovil carried a constant threat in the shape of new loan signing Michael Ngoo. 

Yeovil fell behind in the 32nd. minute when a back pass from Webbster was pounced on by Dyop.

The second half saw a more determined response from Yeovil and they should have had a penalty when Billy Clifford was blatantly brought down in the box. 

The local referee refused to give it and to make matters worse booked and sent off Clifford for simulation. A shocking decision.

Following a free kick against Ed Upson, Neca lobbed keeper Gareth Stewart to give a very unjust look to the score line for Farense's second goal.

Ten men Yeovil continued to battle but by then the defeat was sealed.

Yeovil Town: Marek Stech , Lewis Young, Byron Webster, Joe Jones, Seth Nana Omuri-Twumasi, Kevin Dawson, Ed Upson, Billy Clifford, Joel Grant 
Sam Hoskins, Michael Ngoo

Substitutes:  
Paddy Madden (for Sam Hoskins), Joe Edwards (for Billy Clifford), Sam Foley (for Joel Grant), Luke Ayling (for Joe Jones), Gareth Stewart (for Marek Stech), Joe Jones (for Byron Webster), Billy Clifford (for Ed Upson), Joel Grant (for Kevin Dawson), Sam Hoskins (for Michael Ngoo).
