Colchester United v Yeovil Town: Victory is a must for Glovers after Doncaster draw
Drawing at Doncaster Rovers makes victory at Colchester United tonight a must for Yeovil Town, according to their manager Gary Johnson.
The Glovers head east on the back of a 1-1 stalemate at the Keepmoat Stadium, Billy Paynter's header cancelling out Paddy Madden's earlier opener.
The result kept Yeovil a point away from npower League One's top two, whilst Colchester were thumped 5-1 by Tranmere Rovers.
Johnson said: "They have had a poor result with Tranmere beating them. They will either be right up for it or completely demoralised, we will have to wait and see.

"It becomes an important game to win now after we have had the draw. We need to pick up the three points.
"Bournemouth were top of the table, near enough. They got beaten (by Sheffield United) and all of a sudden they're sixth which just shows you how tight it is up there.
"We're looking forward to Tuesday. We have got to go there and make sure we put up a real clever, hard-working performance because we need to make sure we get the three points."
The travellers are likely to be without captain Jamie McAllister and striker James Hayter after both limped off with ankle and foot injuries on Saturday.
Johnson said after Saturday's final whistle that he would consider dipping into the loan market to cover the experienced duo's absences but admitted there might not be sufficient time to complete a deal before their midweek game.
Despite reduced selection options, the boss said victory would still be their sole focus in Essex.
"We have certainly got to go there to win but I have never gone away anywhere and not tried to win the game," he said.
"They are not easy games but they are the games where we have got to pick up as many point as we possibly can."
