Millwall loan watch: Standing ovation for Nelson

SID Nelson got his Yeovil career off to a flying start as the Glovers defeated Coventry 2-0 on Saturday.

Nelson, 21, started in the centre of defence as goals from Rhys Browne and Olufela Olomola sealed the win to move Yeovil up to 12th in the League Two table.

Nelson went off in the 93rd minute to a standing ovation after helping Yeovil to their first clean sheet in the league this season.

Yeovil had conceded 15 goals in their previous four games – including eight on the opening day at Luton.

Yeovil manager Darren Way was deligted with his new defensive recruit. He told the club's official website:  “We brought in Sid, who I thought was fantastic, but we really defended well against a good team.

“I said from day one if we got the balance right between defence and attack, we’d end up winning games and to get a clean sheet plus how we defended as a team was fantastic."

Also in League Two, Harry Smith came on in the 78th minute, but couldn’t help Swindon avoid a 3-0 defeat at home to Crawley, who won for the first time in the league under manager Harry Kewell.

James Brown, meanwhile, was on the bench as Carlisle lost 4-1 at Lincoln.

In League One, Jimmy Abdou played 90 minutes in midfield as Kwesi Appiah and Andy Barcham struck in the first half in AFC Wimbledon’s 2-0 win over Doncaster.

In the National League on Saturday, Jamie Philpot came on as a 65th-minute substitute as Woking lost 1-0 at Wrexham.
