Jon Obika struck a vital goal for Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Just days after making his debut for England Under-17s, the Academy striker scored the only goal of the game for the Glovers against Swindon Town in League One.

Fellow Spurs loanees Andros Townsend and Danny Hutchins also played the full 90 minutes with Jon scoring the only goal after 33 minutes he ran onto Paul Warne's pass and lobbed Swindon keeper Phil Smith.

Yeovil remain in the relegation zone but are level on points with Northampton Town - who they play in a huge game on Tuesday. Three more teams are just a point further ahead as they enter a crucial stage of the season.

Yuri Berchiche and David Hutton are also experiencing life at the bottom of League One and Yuri made his debut for Cheltenham Town, playing the full 90 minutes in a goalless draw against Walsall. David was an unused substitute. Cheltenham are bottom but are now five games unbeaten.

Troy Archibald-Henville played 90 minutes as League Two play-off hopefuls Exeter picked up a valuable point in a 2-2 draw at third-placed Rochdale.

David Button was an unused substitute for Luton Town in a 2-1 win at Morecambe in League Two while Lee Butcher made some fine saves to preserve a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw for St Albans at Thurrock in the Blue Square (Conference) South.
