Swansea City finally ended their goalless and winless run at Huish Park with a 2-1 away win at Yeovil.

It was our 4th consecutive win which puts us back into the top 2 with a game in hand over leaders Carlisle.

Roberto Martinez fielded an unchanged side from the one that beat Bournemouth 4-1 a fortnight ago. The Swansea boss was also boosted with the returns of Andy Robinson, Alan Tate and Leon Britton who made up a strong subs bench.



The game started off at a good pace and it was end to end stuff in the opening 15-20 minutes.

It was the home side who tested the opposition's goalkeeper first as De Vries made a superb save to deny a golden chance for the Glovers after 8 minutes.

We finally got a shot at goal and Butler's long range effort from outside the box was parried away for a corner.

The hosts were forced into making a change early on as Marcus Stewart went off injured to be replaced by Paul Warne.

Ferrie Bodde went close a few minutes later as his shot hit the side netting and a corner was given. Monk also had a chance on goal but his header was easily saved.

It was a close competitive game which Swansea edged and we got the opening goal at a good time, just a few minutes before half time.

Jason Scotland scored his first goal in 6 games after picking up Anderson's cross and slotting the ball home from 18 yards.

Yeovil came out in the second half a much improved side from the first and they got back into the game just 3 minutes after the restart. Angel Rangel conceded a needless free-kick. Barry sent the ball in, Guyett headed across goal and Betsy was there to scramble the ball in.

Yeovil continued to put pressure on us from free-kicks as we struggled to defend their set pieces but it was the Swans that got the all important match winning goal.

Ferrie Bodde cut inside and his low shot beat the keeper to send 1,500 Swans fans into raptures behind the goal.
