We had won our last three league games, do confidence going into this game was high. Also I had never been to Yeovil so it was another ground to tick off the list!

I travelled on our supporters coach down to Yeovil, which due to a local benefactor had been provided free of charge. As we neared Yeovil I noticed that the ground was well signposted. The coach was parked behind the away terrace.

Before the game we went to see the Yeovil players come off the team coach. I then bought a match programme and had a walk to the away end. I went inside put our flag up and took our seats. The home fans seemed friendly enough.

My first impression of the away end of the ground was "I've seen better" But that was the terrace. The covered stand to our right where the Scunthorpe fans had a section of covered seating was a far better sight.

The game was very poor from a Scunthorpe fans views. After a five hour journey on the coach, we only saw a total of two shots on target from us! I've got to admit we got played off the park from one of the best team's we've come across this season. No real excuses but the pitch was possibly the worst I have seen for a long time. Goals from Webster, Hayter and Madden made the result 3-0 to Yeovil. The atmosphere wasn't the best. Yeovil had the occasional chant once they scored. Also we wasn't in the best voice ever. 155 travelled down. But we didn't have anything to get excited about. The stewards were one of the best I've come across so far this season! Friendly and had a good chat with them. The pies were good and the facilities weren't too bad either.

After the game it took us a good 20 minutes to get away from the stadium, due to the congested traffic. But once we got out it was a good journey.

The day itself was a good day with all the fellow fans. But the performance from Scunthorpe wasn't great. We need to play a lot better if we want to still be in League One next season. I would be happy to visit Yeovil again for sure!
