BBC match report –

Yeovil twice battled back from a goal down to win at Exeter.

Jamie Cureton tapped the hosts ahead after his initial shot had been saved, before Sam Williams headed in an Andy Welsh free-kick to equalise.

Richard Logan flicked the ball on to Cureton, who lobbed goalkeeper Stephen Henderson to regain the lead.

Dean Bowditch headed in a Welsh cross to draw the Glovers level, before home keeper Ben Hamer spilled Jon Obika's shot to Bowditch who fired the winner.

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:
"In terms of chances and shots on goal then no (we did not deserve to lose them game).

"But if we judge it by our own standards, having a one goal lead and then a 2-1 lead, then in my opinion being complacent and the sloppy in the second half means we did not deserve to win.

"We have lost a game we should've won and I would rather have had a nil-nil - the team did not do the right thing."

Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:
"We had to ride our luck a little bit towards the end, they had two or three good chances to get back into the game.

"I've been really frustrated this season with players shooting and hitting the side netting, and Jon Obika today has a shot across the 'keeper (which) gets parried, and Dean Bowditch gets a tap in.

"That's that little bit of quality and that little bit of know-how we've been missing lately and it was good to see him and Shaun (MacDonald) back in Yeovil Town colours."
