Yeovil Town went down to a single goal defeat this afternoon at Huish Park, on a day in which referee Trevor Kettle's return to South Somerset once again took centre-stage. The Rutland official, who has baffled fans with his penalties and cards over the years, settled the game in the 77th minute when a Luke Ayling challenge on Adam Le Fondre inside the box was judged to be illegal, and the Royals striker stepped up to give the visitors all three points. The Glovers had their own numerous chances during the 90 minutes, but with one goal scored in five Championship games, they slip to 22nd in the current Championship table after today's results.
