Yeovil Town will be looking to reach the Third round of the FA Cup but have the small matter of getting past Hollywood FC (Wrexham) when they meet on Sunday afternoon at the Racecourse Ground.

Manager Mark Cooper is looking forward to the game. He said: “It’s probably one of the hardest draws we could have gotten, it’s a tough one but one we’re looking forward too.

We have enjoyed the build up as there is no pressure on us to win, Wrexham know they are the favourites and the pressure is on them.”

Cooper also explained how he has told his players they “have to the horrible stuff well” if they want to come away with a win on Sunday.

Boss Phil Parkinson is taking the threat of a Yeovil upset seriously. He said: “We are going to go all out to give our best to get through but this is a tough game.

“If we think it is going to be easy for one minute, it could be a tough afternoon but the intention is to be professional and get through to the next round.”

The ex-Bradford manager also claimed he has the “utmost respect for Yeovil” and described the glovers as a “very good national league team.”

The north Wales outfit have multiple key men within their squad. The ones to look out for are striker Paul Mullin who has bagged himself nine goals in fifteen matches so far this season. Another player integral to the Red Dragons is midfielder Elliot Lee, the attacking midfielder has been in fine form so far this season, with 13 G/A in 20 appearances.

One name that will be familiar with Glovers fans is centre back Ben Tozer. The defender played a season at hush park back in the 15/16 season before leaving for Newport County. The 33-year-old is known for his long throws which will pose a danger to the Yeovil defence.

Wrexham will be without first choice goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo out, Mark Howard is expected to replace him in the lineup.

The game will be live to watch on ITV and ITVX on Sunday 3rd December after the Eastleigh vs Reading game.
