Glovers take second bite of the Cherry

An injury-time equaliser handed Yeovil a 2-2 draw and put them on the verge of mathematical League One safety while denting Bournemouth`s promotion aspirations.The sixth-placed Cherries will be bitterly disappointed at throwing away a two-goal lead which would have strengthened their bid for a play-off place.All the scoring was done in the second half after Yeovil had lost skipper Paul Huntington in the 50th minute for a second bookable offence.Five minutes later Bournemouth's Adam Smith went down under a challenge from Nathan Smith and although referee Steve Tanner waved play on, his assistant flagged for a penalty which Tanner eventually gave and Danny Ings duly converted.Ings added another goal after 68 minutes when he swept in a Liam Feeney cross and Yeovil seemed down and out.But four minutes from time Tanner`s opposite assistant flagged for a Yeovil penalty which Adam Virgo smashed into the roof of the net. And then in stoppage time midfielder Shaun MacDonald headed in a right-wing corner from Craig Alcock, leaving Yeovil still to taste defeat at home to Bournemouth.
