Video: Hundreds of Yeovil Town fans leave Huish Park for Leyton Orient match
More than 500 Yeovil Town fans have left Huish Park for tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy area semi-final at Leyton Orient.
The Glovers are providing free coach travel to the match - an offer which the fans have snapped up in their droves - in a bid to create a fantastic atmosphere in the away end at Brisbane Road.
The idea is the brainchild of Yeovil manager Gary Johnson and a number of coaches sponsored by Johnson himself, directors, supporters’ groups and local businesses have set off on the trip to East London.
“It’s unbelievable because you think of something and I felt that it was a great little scheme to give something back to the supporters," said Johnson.

"But if we wanted them down there we had to think of a way of getting them down there.
“That support has gone well beyond our wildest dreams, so now if we’re getting 700-800 people – that’s a proper away crowd.
"That will give us the support worthy of being at home and what I’m hoping is that it all comes right for us - that support, that noise in our favour, that’ll help our boys."
Western Gazette sports editor Chris Sweet spoke to some of the Glovers fans before they set off from Huish Park.
