SEASON REVIEW - APRIL 2014

22 May 2014

The month started with a bombshell with the news that Gary Johnson had dispensed with Ishmael Miller’s services for disciplinary reasons.



It didn’t affect the team though as they added to Blackpools’ wow’s with a 2-1 victory. A first half penalty from James Hayter in the first half was backed up by a great goal from Tom Lawrence as Yeovil went 2-0 up.

Grandin pulled one back but it was a happy bus trip back for Yeovil and justified Gary Johnson’s decision.



With matches running out the away trip to Charlton was another one of those “must win matches.” Despite a determined performance from the Glovers, that saw Joel Grant equalise Charlton’s first half strike, they still ran out 3-2 losers as Dervit and Sordell scored early in the second half.

Kieffer Moore pulled another goal back but it was a disappointing defeat as Relegation became more and more possible.


Yeovil though were not going to go down without a fight and were so desperately unlucky not to take all three points against AFC Bournemouth in their next home match.



Kieffer Moore unleashed a first half screamer to put The Glovers ahead midway through the first half but The Cherries scored the most fluky equaliser you will ever see, as Byron Webster smashed a clearance against Fraser which somehow found it’s way into the net.

If it’s not meant to be it’s not meant to be!!



Only four games left now, and a difficult trip up to Blackburn saw The Glovers yet again astound their doubters, outplaying Rovers but unable to find a goal to kill them off.

Although mathematically still possible, hopes were hanging by a thread when Huddesfield rolled into town.



Wells put The Terriers ahead in the second half but Tom Lawrence equalised for the Glovers in the 73rd. minute.

But it wasn't meant to be and we all realised despite our hopes and prayers that fact when Clayton scored in the 6th. minute of injury time.



Unless other teams were going to go crazy conceding goals, it was all over and again despite a spirited display away at Brighton Yeovil went down 2-0 to confirm relegation back to the SkyBet League One.

The season’s finale was a pointless affair against Middlesbrough when they collected their usual four goals to send the Huish Park faithful away in tears.



Hayter did equalise an early Boro goal but the tanks were totally run draw of both emotion, determination and energy.

It had been a fantastic journey, and but for several early season decisions mentioned earlier in these reviews, it might have been a different story.

But with the financial divide so huge now and Financial Fair Play to add to the story how long will it take Yeovil to get back to the promised land.

But let’s not end on a negative note!! We have Gary Johnson and if anybody can get Yeovil back up he can.

So fasten your safety belt and let’s enjoy the ride.
