Forest went ahead in the 16th minute through an own goal from Byron Webster but Kieffer Moore scored in the right end for Yeovil nine minutes later.

Simon Cox then put the hosts back in front in the 38th minute before debutant substitute Rafik Djebbour scrambled home a third in the stoppage time after Cox's effort struck the post.

Watford are moving back up the table after clinching a deserved 2-0 victory over Brighton at Vicarage Road.

Ikechi Anya fired the Hornets into an early lead with an angled shot across Tomasz Kuszczak and Beppe Sannino's side were assured of their first win of 2014 on the hour mark when Fernando Forestieri made the most of a poor back pass from Gordon Greer.

Watford had gone into the game on the back of a dismal run of league form which had seen them win only one of their previous 15 matches, but this triumph will renew their confidence.
