February opened with a rare Sunday afternoon match up at The City Ground, Nottingham but things didn’t improve as Forest knocked three past Stech. An own goal from Byron Webster, Simon Cox and Rafik Djebbour doing the damage.
After Webster’s own goal, as early as the 16th. minute, Kiefer Moore had equalised to give the Glovers hope, but Forest were well in control by the end to gain revenge for their 3-1 defeat at Huish Park.
The Sky cameras were on hand to see the visit of Leeds United and Yeovil out played their Northern visitors in the first half and should have gone in at half time 2-0 up.
Ishmael Miller had given the Glovers a 23rd. minute lead and when Kevin Dawson was brought down in the box as half time approached the chance was there for a 2-0 lead.
A confident Miller stepped up but somehow managed to crash the ball against the post and the chance was gone.
With a strong wind Marek Stech didn’t listen to instructions and somehow managed to kick a clearance straight to Ross McCormack who volleyed it straight back past him into the net.
Just past the hour mark Stephen Warnock secured the points for Leeds from a free kick and despite lots of pressure from The Glovers the match was gone.
The following Tuesday saw Millwall visit Huish Park for what was billed a “Must Win Sixpointer”
Once again Yeovil took the lead after a goaless first half when Joe Ralls side footed home from close range.
With new loan signing Tom Lawrence from Manchester United shining on the wing, things were looking good but Yeovil became tentative and Millwall equalised through Steve Morrison and suddenly the “Must Win” game became a “Must Not Lose Game” as an edgy Huish Park saw the game peter out to a disappointing draw.
Watford were the next visitors to Huish Park for another “Must Win Six Pointer” battle which once again ended in a draw doing The Glovers no good at all, although the point did keep Yeovil in the battling group all trying to avoid relegation.
Another home game to end the month saw Doncaster the visitors and a James Hayter penalty (he loves scoring against his old clubs!) was enough to secure the points for The Glovers as the month ended in a more happier and defiant mood.
