WASTED opportunites cost Yeovil Town dear as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Huish Park on Saturday against Hartlepool United in the npower League One.

Yeovil created a number of chances to have broken the deadlock in the opening half, but they found visiting keeper Scott Flinders, who was on loan at Huish Park for the Glovers a few years ago, in great form.

Hartlepool rarely threatened by they completed a typical smash-and-grab raid on Huish Park when Ryan Noble struck from close range midway through the second period.
