The gloves are off - Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town 1 - 2 Plymouth Argyle (Buszaky, Ebanks-Blake)

Following the disappointment of losing to Torquay the lads came back with a 2-1 win over the other green-clad south west team, Yeovil thanks to Sylvain's penalty and Akos.

At a match governed by Breacker because Ollie was absent due to scouting, Chadwick made a return to the game following his long injury period, the team looked better than their previous two friendly matches. The same team who played at Hull City last season went 1-0 up after 7 minutes thanks to Akos Buszaky and the score remained that way until just after the second half kick off when sloppy defending caused a Yeovil equaliser. It didn't remain that way for long for the referee awarded a penalty for a foul on Norris 3 minutes later. Unlike Weston and Torquay, Breacker didn't use two separate line ups for each half, preferring to bring on subs in the closing three minutes; perhaps this 'league-like play' helped Argyle to look steadier on the field.

There remains one more fixture before the Austrian tour - Cambridge on Saturday - and Argyle are squeezing in an extra match verses Paulton Rovers on Tuesday 31 July.
