Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins before the game against Weston super-Mare and said how pleased he was to have Matt Worthington back from injury and how much Josh Owers has earned his first start of the season.

“Worthy comes back in, so he gives us energy in the middle of the pitch, young Josh Owers get an opportunity as well, he’s got lots of energy as well, so those give us a solid three in the middle of the pitch with Morgan (Williams)”

“He’s (Owers) just got to see it as another game, as an extension of his working week and not get too hot and panic, he’ll be fine. He’s got a great engine, he’s six foot, so he can get about the pitch and he’ll be fine.”

He’s a great character amongst the group, the boys like him, he’s been patient and he deserves his opportunity.

There’s a change up front too with Jake Hyde missing out, but Bagsman, Rhys Murphy comes right back into the starting line up,

“I’m sure, Murphy, Nouble and Young will get opportunities, it’s a strong forward line, Hyde is not fit, he’s got a tight calf, so those three get a go tonight.”

Cooper was looking forward to trying to put on a show for a packed out away terrace – every single one of the 850 away tickets sold out to Glovers fans. 

“It’s a local derby, there’s a big crowd, an expectant crowd from Yeovil. They’ve got some good players, Weston, it’s going to be a tough game.

Hopefully by kick off the sun will have gone, dropped down, it’s still warm, my only concern is, we’ve had two massive away followings and we’ve not rewarded them, so third time lucky – that has to be the aim.

It’s nice, home or away to get the points, so if we can get the points tonight it puts us in a great position.”
