Ten-man Addicks denied at Yeovil

Next Story

Yeovil withstood tremendous second-half pressure to deny Charlton victory and earn a 1-1 draw at a wind-swept Huish Park.

Yeovil had the better of the first half with the wind and rain behind them and grabbed the lead two minutes before half-time when Ryan Mason set up his on-loan Tottenham team-mate, Jon Obika, who slotted home.

By that time the Addicks were down to 10 men as in the 27th minute Sam Sodje brought down Mason on the edge of the box and was sent-off for the professional foul.

At half-time Charlton brought on Akpo Sodje, Sam's brother, and the loanee from Sheffield Wednesday took less than two minutes to get into the action.

He got the ball into the net with a free-kick from Miguel Llera that was booted out and had strayed off-side.

However in the 56th minute Sodje got the equaliser with a superb 25-yarder when he picked up a loose ball and let fly.

Charlton pushed hard for a winner but came up against a resolute home defence and had to settle for a point.
