Thank you for joining me at Huish Park this afternoon, a full match report will be available soon via www.yeovilexpress.co.uk/sport

4:58pm

A thrilling second half here at Huish Park as Yeovil come from 2-0 down to salvage a point thanks to an own goal and a penalty from Ishmael Miller. 

Charlton had gone into the break 2-0 up thanks to strikes from Cameron Stewart and Johnnie Jackson. 

4:47pm

Inches from a third Yeovil goal. Ishmael Miller's measured effort from20 yards rolls inches wide of the target with Alnwick beaten. 

4:41pm

It's getting worse for Charlton. Captain Johnnie Jackson receives a straight red card for a two footed tackle on Joe Edwards. 

4:38pm

GOAL! Stunning comeback from Yeovil. Joel Grant is felled in the box and Ishmael Miller makes no mistake from 12 yards. 

2-2. 

4:34pm

The hosts have a goal back. Joel Grant's cross deflects off of Michael Morrison for an own goal. 

1-2 with a little under 20 minutes remaining. 

4:32pm

Yellow card shown to Kevin Dawson for a little kick out at Yann Kermorgant.

4:30pm

First sub for the Addicks as the experienced Andy Hughes replaces Jordan Cousins. 

4:28pm

Another good save from Dunn, this time to claw away Simon Church's acrobatic effort from 12 yards. 

4:23pm

Sub James Hayter manages to find an inch of space in a congested Charlton box but his effort drifts harmlessly wide. 

4:22pm

Close to a third for Charlton as Jordan Cousins flashed an effort just wide of the post from long range. 

4:21pm

Final substitution for Yeovil as Liam Davis limps off and is replaced by Jamie McAllister. 

4:18pm

This match is starting to hot up now.

Two penalty shouts in quick succession for Yeovil as first Ishmael Miller is held in the box before James Hayter goes down under a challenge. Nothing given. 

4:16pm

Joe Edwards is next to go close for Yeovil. The midfielder's effort from the edge of the box flies just over the bar. 

4:12pm

It would appear Kevin Dawson has been brought on to deal with the threat of Cameron Stewart who was certainly the danger man in the first half. 

4:08pm

We're back underway at Huish Park and there's been a double substitution for the Glovers. 

OFF Adam Morgan & John Lundstram 

ON James Hayter & Kevin Dawson

3:53pm

3:52pm

Yeovil Town 0-2 Charlton Athletic.

Not a classic here at Huish Park but Charlton have been clinical in front of goal. Efforts from Cameron Stewart and Johnnie Jackson give them a two goal lead at the break. 

3:49pm

It's a second goal for the visitors. Stewart's lofted ball to the back post is headed past a stranded Dunn by Johnnie Jackson.

3:42pm

GOAL! Former Yeovil loanee Cameron Stewart gives the Addicks the lead after cutting in from the left flank and bending an effort past Dunn. 

3:34pm

3:33pm

Fantastic save from Chris Dunn.

Cameron Stewart cut in from the left before unleashing an effort that was destined for the top corner. Dunn's fingertips prevent an opening goal. 

3:29pm

Liam Davis' fierce strike from 25 yards is collected well by Ben Alnwick. The home side are beginning to create chances.

3:24pm

Very even opening 20 minutes here at Huish Park.

Possession: Yeovil 48% Charlton 52%

3:22pm

Yellow card shown to Charlton's Lawrie Wilson for a cynical foul on Joel Grant. 

3:17pm

First shot of the game goes Yeovil's way. John Lundstram's half volley from 25 yards fizzes just over the bar. 

3:14pm

Both sides struggling to find any rhythm early on. 

3:10pm

Early yellow card for Yeovil's Shane Duffy for felling Yann Kermorgant.

3:04pm

We're underway at Huish Park with Yeovil attacking the Copse Road end in the first half. 

3:00pm

Both teams are out on the pitch here at Huish Park.

Before kick off there will be a minute's applause to commemorate the life of Nelson Mandela who died earlier this week.

2:49pm

Just ten minutes until kick off here at Huish Park. Here's a reminder of the two starting line-ups:

24. Chris Dunn                                        12. Ben Alnwick

2. Luke Ayling                                          23. Lawrie Wilson

5. Byron Webster (c)                                5. Michael Morrison

15. Shane Duffy                                       6. Dorian Dervite

21. Liam Davis                                         16. Rhoys Wiggins

4. Joe Edwards                                        24. Jordan Cousins

8. Ed Upson                                             4. Johnnie Jackson (c)

31. John Lundstram                                  8. Dale Stephens

23. Joel Grant                                          32. Cameron Stewart 

27. Ishmael Miller                                    18. Yann Kermorgant

29. Adam Morgan                                     9. Simon Church

2:38pm

Despite Yeovil boasting the better form coming in to this match this afternoon, Gary Johnson's side are winless in the seven previous league meetings between the two sides. 

However, the Glovers did come out on top in the League Cup in 2008 when they defeated the Addicks 1-0. 

2:26pm

Two former Yeovil players are involved for Charlton this afternoon.

Striker Simon Church spent a spell on loan in Somerset from Reading in 2008 making six appearances, whilst winger Cameron Stewart made five appearances for the Glovers in 2010 whilst on loan from Manchester United. 

2:17pm

Still no place in the Yeovil squad for transfer listed striker Paddy Madden, whilst Wigan loanee Fraser Fyvie is missing for the third game running, suggesting his loan from the Latics is all but over. 

2:14pm

Charlton Athletic starting XI: Alnwick; Wilson, Wiggins, Dervite, Morrison; Stewart, Jackson (c), Cousins, Stephens; Kermorgant, Church. 

 

Just one change for the visitors, then, with captain Johnnie Jackson replacing Cedric Evina who drops to the bench. 

2:09pm

No surprise that Gary Johnson has stuck with the starting eleven who have won the last two matches keeping two clean sheets in the process. 

On loan Bristol City defender Liam Fontaine the unlucky 'sixth loan' to miss out on a space in the matchday squad. 

2:07pm

Yeovil Town starting XI: Dunn; Ayling, Webster, Duffy, Davis; Edwards, Upson, Lundstram, Grant; Miller, Morgan. 

Bench: Stewart, Foley, Hayter, Dawson, Ralls, Hoskins, McAllister.

2:05pm

Yeovil Town will be hoping to record their third straight victory in the Sky Bet Championship at home to fellow strugglers Charlton Athletic this afternoon. 

A win for the Glovers would see them leapfrog their opponents and exit the relegation zone.
