  • Sam Surridge (2' PEN)
  • Francois Zoko (90'+3')

Yeovil cruise to victory over struggling Barnet

Yeovil beat bottom-placed Barnet 2-0 in Sky Bet League Two thanks to an early penalty from Sam Surridge and stoppage-time second from substitute Francois Zoko.
The Glovers showed their intent right from the kick-off and it resulted in a penalty being given after just 30 seconds when Ricardo Santos brought down Surridge in the box and the striker picked himself up to score.
Having created almost nothing in the first half the Bees sprung into life in the second but goalkeeper Jonny Maddison was equal to it, first getting a strong hand to a deflected Simeon Akinola shot. Maddison then tipped an effort from Mauro Vilhete onto the post and stood firm again to turn a David Tutonda strike from distance wide.
At the other end Santos this time denied the hosts a goal, positioning himself perfectly to clear a Corey Whelan shot off the line with Craig Ross beaten, but Zoko secured the three points in the third minute of added time with a low strike on the break.
