Yeovil Town 3-0 Brentford: Ed Upson screamer boosts Glovers play-off push
Ed Upson marked his 100th appearance for Yeovil Town with a wonder goal in this afternoon's fantastic 3-0 win over Brentford at Huish Park.
Paddy Madden and Dan Burn were also on target for the Glovers, who are now only being kept out of the play-off places by goal difference.
Victory over the Bees, who slipped a place to fifth following the defeat, sees Yeovil level on points with sixth-placed Sheffield United, whose goal difference is better off by three.
The Glovers were boosted by two goals within seven first-half minutes.

Madden was the first to strike, chipping home in the 34th minute after capitalising on some poor Brentford defending.
Upson then marked his 100th Yeovil appearance with a wonder strike in the 41st minute, letting rip from 30 yards and giving Bees goalkeeper Simon Moore no chance.
Prior to those two goals, it had been the visitors who looked far more dangerous.
Brentford could, and probably should, have been in front, only to be denied by the excellent Marek Stech.
The Yeovil keeper tipped Clayton Donaldson's speculative effort over the bar, and also made a crucial block with his knees to deny Adeyemi in the spell before Madden's opener.
Sponsors' man of the match Dan Burn made it 3-0 in the 84th minute with a cracking finish, hitting Jamie McAllister's free-kick first time.
And a few minutes later Brentford were lucky they didn't go four down when Kevin Dawson's effort was cleared off the line and Sam Foley fired just wide.
