This live event has finished
Thanks for following the action here this evening. The full report, more reaction and match photographs will be in tomorrow's Echo.
Brown on injury concerns: “Marc took a knock on Saturday and then also picked up a slight niggle in training so that’s a concern.
“Don Cowan came off with what we thought was cramp and Julian Bennett was substituted after being pushed in to the advertising boards.
"We will know more about their injuries in the next day or so."
Phil Brown: “I thought we had the performance but not the result but I’m relatively pleased with our display.
“Yeovil showed their Championship quality at times which did make a difference but our desire and will to win was certainly there and we got more in to it the longer the game went on.
“We could have snatched an equaliser at the end and maybe we didn’t deserve to lose.”
