Yeovil Town's Keanu Marsh-Brown apologises for tweet during Leyton Orient match
Yeovil Town attacker Keanu Marsh-Brown has apologised and blamed his brother for a tweet sent by his account just minutes after his substitution at Leyton Orient last night.
The former Arsenal and Fulham youngster was recalled to the starting XI by manager Gary Johnson for the clash at The Matchroom Stadium.
However, with the Glovers trailing 2-0 and Marsh-Brown failing to have the desired impact he was replaced by Gozie Ugwu at the interval.
As the two teams started the second half, a message reading “?????????????????????????????” appeared on the 20-year-old’s Twitter account @KMarshBrown, before being deleted when supporters retweeted it.

After the match Johnson said the summer signing must have been questioning his own performance, insisting that would be the only way to improve.
But shortly before midday today Marsh-Brown explained on the social network: “Apologise for the tweet last night my little brother had access to my twitter.”
When asked on Tuesday about the message, Johnson said: “I haven’t seen it but I will have a look at it and if it is only question marks he is allowed to do that. He must be questioning his performance.
“If he isn’t then he isn’t going to improve because he didn’t do anything on the day. We had him out there to go one versus one – he knew that.
“He played really well against West Bromwich Albion and had a couple of really good games but on Tuesday, for whatever reason, he didn’t do his job and of you don’t do your job I have got to make the change.
“There were a few others that didn’t either but I just felt he was not quite up to it on the day.”
