STEVE­NAGE ........0 YEOVIL TOWN ....2

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By James Walker

YEOVIL boss Gary John­son be­lieves his team are Cham­pi­onship qual­ity af­ter goals from Sam Fo­ley and James Hayter guar­an­teed a play-off spot.

Fo­ley opened the scor­ing with a curled ef­fort from the edge of the area eight min­utes into the sec­ond-half be­fore Hayter thumped the ball home from six yards with ten min­utes re­main­ing.

Dani Lopez’s well-placed header al­most gave Boro a half-time lead but a div­ing Marek Stech de­nied the Spa­niard.

John­son said:“We did look a Cham­pi­onship team at the end against a Boro team that were hang­ing in there.

“It’s a mag­ni­fi­cient achieve­ment for our club, our sup­port­ers and our play­ers to get into a play-off po­si­tion. We’ve still got to keep go­ing through and try and touch the teams above us.

“I wanted us to con­sol­i­date and we have. It’s nice to do that. It’s been a fan­tas­tic end to the sea­son what­ever hap­pens. In the first half we were ab­so­lutely hope­less. I felt most of them didn’t turn up. It was 0-0 so that was the only pos­i­tive.

“I must have pushed a few but­tons be­cause when we came out we looked to­tally dif­fer­ent.”

Fo­ley opened the scor­ing
