Swansea were crowned League One champions on Saturday despite suffering a second successive home defeat as Yeovil claimed a 2-1 win to end their relegation fears.
Yeovil went ahead in the 23rd minute when captain Terry Skiverton headed into the net, a goal which was followed by Aidan Downes' superb long-range effort in the 60th minute to double Yeovil's advantage. Andy Robinson then fired home in the 78th minute as Swansea pulled one back but the Welsh side then had Darren Pratley sent off for a foul on Lloyd Owusu.
