The game went ahead the horrendous weather in Somerset, and Yeovil's protection of the pitch defied constant rain in the South West.

Yeovil took the lead thanks to Ishmael Miller's 32nd-minute header, but Ross McCormack drew the visitors level just 35 seconds into the second half.

While Leeds' leveller was a stunning strike in difficult conditions, the wind paid a big part in their winner.

With terrible weather pounding Britain over the weekend, Warnock used the awful elements to his advantage as used the blustery conditions to his favour.

Jamie McAllister conceded a free-kick just inside his own half and from fully fifty yards, the former Liverpool left-back launched an arching ball into a packed goalmouth.

However, the free-kick curled away from its intended target as the wind carried the ball and sailed over the head of Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Štěch, nestling in the back of his net.
