Thanks for joining me. The match report will follow shortly. 


Full time: Yeovil 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday. 

Ishmael Miller's double is enough for the Glovers to see off the Owls and continue their bid for survival. Johnson's side are now only in the bottom three on goal difference. 

Cracking performance at Huish Park. 


It gets worse for Wednesday as Sam Huthinson receives a second yellow for a high elbow on Adam Morgan. 



Final sub for Yeovil as Adam Morgan replaces James Hayter, who limps off the pitch. 


Rare chance for Wednesday as Glenn Loovens can only head over the bar despite being unmarked at the back post. 

That's a warning for Yeovil.


Second sub for the Glovers as two-goal man Ishmael Miller is replaced by Kevin Dawson. 

Joel Grant moves up top to accommodate Dawson on the right. 


First substitution of the afternoon for Yeovil as Joel Grant replaces Duane Holmes. 



The match is becoming more stretched now as Wednesday search for a way back into the game. Nothing by way of chances for either side in the last 5 minutes. 


Penalty appeals for the Glovers as Tom Lawrence goes down under the challenge of Onyewu. Nothing given. 



What a goal! Miller has doubled his tally for the day with an effort from the top drawer! 



The second half is underway at Huish Park.

Yeovil will be hoping for much of the same whilst the visitors will be looking to rescue their 9 game unbeaten run away from home 



Yeovil go in to the break a goal to the good and deservedly so. Ishmael Miller's strike just before the break the difference. 


As things stand the Glovers are out of the relegation zone on goal difference. 


And Yeovil take the lead! Tom Lawrence deflects the ball into the path of Ishmael Miller who finishes emphatically. 

Yeovil 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday


Into the final 10 minutes of the first half here at Huish Park. 

Yeovil will want to take a lead into the break after their dominance. 


Another chance for the hosts as Duane Holmes sees his effort from the edge of the box saved well by Martinez diving to his left. The keeper recovers well to collect before Miller arrived on the follow-up. 


Sheffield Wednesday looking to get a foothold in the match now with a procession of corners. The hosts' defence standing up to the challenge so far. 


Midway through the first half and Yeovil have taken control of proceedings at Huish Park. 

The Thatchers Stand in good voice. 


Another good chance for Gary Johnson's side. James Hayter has the chance of a volley inside the box but scuffs his connection. 


Yeovil have the ball in the net but Ishmael Miller's tidy finish won't count as the Nottingham Forest loanee was adjudged to have been offside. 



Ishmael Miller gets the Glovers' first shot on target of the afternoon. Comfortable save for Martinez though. 


Good response from Yeovil.

Sheffield Wednesday can't completely clear Luke Ayling's free-kick and Tom Lawrence fires an effort from the edge of the box just wide. 


Early chance for the visitors as Jacques Maghoma sees his effort from a tight angle saved well by Marek Stech. 


Kick off and we're underway at Huish Park. 


The teams are out on the pitch and ready for kick off. What are your score predictions? Can Yeovil continue their revival? 


Sheffield Wednesday team to face Yeovil: Martinez, Palmer, Loovens, Onyewu, Helan, Maghoma, Hutch, Gardner, Coke, Maguire, Best.


That's two changes for the hosts with Ruben Palazuelos (making his home debut) and Ishmael Miller replacing the suspended duo of Joe Ralls and Kieffer Moore. 


Team news emerging.

Yeovil Town: Stech; Ayling, Webster, Duffy, McAllister; Holmes, Edwards, Palazuelos, Lawrence; Hayter, Miller.

Subs: Dunn, Nana, Lanzoni, Dawson, Lundstram, Morgan, Grant.
