Full match report to follow.
A first home point in the Championship for the Glovers, but it isn't enough to prevent them from slipping to the foot of the table
Brighton try to break for one last time, but the referee stops them by blowing the whistle for full time. 0-0 it ends.
Chance. The ball bobbles around in the Yeovil penalty area before Buckley latches on to it and strikes the outside of the post from 10 yards.
Hoskins has run his socks off today, and he gets back exceptionally well to prevent Andrew Crofts getting a clean shot in from 6 yards.
End to end stuff as the board goes up for 5 minutes injury time. An Edwards cross is met by Williams who heads straight at the Brighton 'keeper.
From the resulting free kick Ed Upson's delivery is glanced wide by Everton loanee Shane Duffy.
Bruno picks up a yellow card.
Buckley slides the ball into Lita who shoots over from 6 yards. That was a big chance for Brighton.
Leroy Lita flashes a shot wide from the edge of the box.
Final change for the visitors as Jake Forster-Caskey replaces Craig Conway.
Kevin Dawson feeds Hoskins inside the box but his snapshot is too close to Kuszczak.
Bruno Saltor plays through Will Buckley, who chips Hennessey but hits the side netting. That's the closest either side have come to scoring.

Final substitution for Yeovil as Hayter comes off to be replaced by Andy Williams.
Hoskins needs to be careful having already been booked, and receives his final warning after bundling over Keith Andrews.

Break in play as the near side linesman has to be replaced through injury. Brighton take the opportunity to introduce newboy Leroy Lita in place of Barnes.

Liam Davis feeds Hoskins, who runs at the Brighton defence before shooting, but it's well held by Kuszczak.
Brighton get us underway with the one change at half time. David Lopez replaces Rohan Ince for the visitors.
With basement side Barnsley currently 3-0 up on Middlesbrough, Yeovil are bottom of the as-it-stands Championship table.
No goals but 5 yellows in a game that has so far been competitive, without either team really threatening.
The resulting free kick comes to nothing and the referee blows for Half Time. Yeovil 0-0 Brighton.
Fellow forward James Hayter joins him soon after for a clumsy challenge on Ward.
Hoskins goes down just outside the box...and is booked for simulation.
Good link up play by Ward and Conway down the Brighton left. The ball bounces to Barnes, but Hennessey saves well at his feet.
Luke Ayling plays in Sam Hoskins down the right, and his shot is touched behind by Kuszczak. Best chance so far.
Will Buckley dinks a cross in from the right that ends up going narrowly wide of Hennessey's post.
Half an hour gone and as yet no great chances for either side.
James Hayter is scythed down by Stephen Ward, who picks up a card.
Conway is looking dangerous down Brighton's left side, but totally miscues a shot from inside the box and falls to the floor.
That switch means Joe Edwards moves from Right Back to Centre Midfield.
Debutant Fraser Fyvie goes down holding his shoulder. Innocuous enough, but his game ends there and is replaced by Luke Ayling.
Cardiff loanee Craig Conway whips the ball across the face of the goal, but no one is there to convert for Brighton.
Ince then fouls Sam Hoskins on the edge of the box. Fyvie steps up and his effort is well parried away by Brighton 'keeper Kuszczak.

Referee Gary Sutton gets us underway. Yeovil will shoot towards the home terrace this half.
Players are out. Is today the day that Yeovil gain their first ever home Championship point?
Smoke grenade let off in the away end but the windy conditions rather ruin the effect.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Bolton is the other game to watch out for in the Championship, with the Glovers potentially leapfrogging one of those clubs with a win.
Another away sell out today, and the travelling fans are certainly making themselves heard. Making for a good atmosphere so far!
14th place may be slightly surprising for a team that finished so strongly last season, as Brighton did, but with Mackail-Smith, Hoskins, highly rated Scotland international Liam Bridcutt, and top scorer Leo Ulloa, all missing through injury, perhaps understandable and Yeovil may fancy their chances of earning a first ever home Champioship win this afternoon.
While new signing Lita is on the bench for Brighton, Rohan Ince, on loan at Yeovil last season, starts with Conway and Bruno Saltor in place of Calderon, Forster-Caskey and Lua Lua.
Changes for both sides as they look to bounce back from disappointing results last time out. Dawson, Hoskins, Hayter and new signing Fyvie replace Grant, Ralls, Williams and Madden for the hosts.
Kuszczak, Bruno Saltor, Greer (c), Andrews, Crofts, Barnes, Ward, Upson, Conway, Buckley, Ince. Subs: Al-Abd, Calderon, Forster-Caskey, Ankergren, David Lopez, Lita, March.
Hennessey, McAllister (c), Edwards, Webster, Dawson, Upson, Hayter, Fyvie, Hoskins, Duffy, Davis. Subs: Ayling, Seaborne, Moore, Fontaine, Grant, Williams, Dunn
Today sees the return of Brighton coach Nathan Jones to Huish Park. The former Glovers left back-cum-assistant manger, has backed his former club to stay up dring interviews this week.
With both teams currently in the lower half of the league table, it's been a loan signing a piece this week. Yeovil brought in Scottish under 21 international Fraser Fyvie from Wigan, while today's visitors moved for striker Leroy Lita from Swansea.
Now that the fortunes of the national team can be put on the back burner until next summer, it's back to fighting for Championship league points.
