Leeds revived their hopes for a top two finish with a 2-1 win at Yeovil but had to work hard to hold off a late Glovers revival.

The Leeds' hero was skipper Richard Naylor, who moved up from the back to head them in front in the 28th minute - the Yorkshire club's first goal for almost seven hours.

The central defender also got his head on the end of a Neil Kilkenny corner to head a brilliant second goal six minutes later.

It looked all over for Yeovil, especially as Leeds dominated the second half, with Naylor almost completing a hat-trick when a header in the 57th minute was cleared off the goalline by Scott Davies.

However, Yeovil refused to lie down and in the 66th minute Dean Bowditch picked up a pass from Gavin Williams and held off a defender to slide the ball past visiting goalkeeper Shane Higgs and in off the far post.
