Alex Revell nets second-half winner as Stevenage edge Yeovil

Alex Revell’s second-half strike settled a controversial contest as Stevenage edged out Yeovil Town 1-0 at the Lamex Stadium.

Yeovil were earlier left incensed after the linesman had ruled out a Tom James free-kick on the hour mark for offside.

But Dino Maamria’s side bounced back from defeat against Forest Green Rovers to stay in touch with the League Two play-offs, while Yeovil remain 21st following a second-straight loss.

Yeovil began the brighter and Alex Dobre’s driven left-footed shot flashed past Paul Farman’s far post after good approach play by Rhys Browne.

The hosts were growing into the contest though and only a superb reflex save from Nathan Baxter – via a deflection – denied Michael Timlin, while Johnny Hunt struck the post.

But Yeovil were left aggrieved after the break when James’ free-kick went straight in, only for the linesman to rule it out for offside with top scorer Alex Fisher in close attendance.

It proved a turning point as Stevenage captain Revell’s smart run and finish from debutant substitute Jordan Gibson’s cross proved decisive with 18 minutes remaining.

The Glovers tried desperately to draw level but only a James effort from distance threatened to deny Stevenage a vital three points.
