Yeovil Town will travel down to Devon for their clash against Truro City on Tuesday night.

Town go into the match having won five in row with their latest triumph coming at home against Hemel Hempstead on Saturday. That game saw new signing Sam Pearson bag a brace.

The White Tigers haven’t played since 13th January as they have had two postponements.

Manager Mark Cooper talked after the Hemel game how he is “excited” for the game. He said: “I’m looking forward to it immensely, every game is closer to where we need to be.”

Cooper, 54, also described Truro’s pitch as “horrendous” the last time we played there in pre-season, so he isn’t expecting much better this time around, with Storm Isha hitting the country.

After Sam Pearson‘s Team of the Week performance, boss Cooper undoubtedly will have a selection headache as to whether keep him in the starting eleven or freshen things up after a short turnaround.

The Glovers have no new injuries or suspensions, with just Jordan Stevens being out until the end of this month.

Before their last game against Welling on the 13th January Truro were on a four game winning run, leading to boss and ex-Glover Paul Wotton getting manager of the month for December.

Aside from Wotton, there is another ex-Yeovil player in the White Tigers ranks, with former loanee Ryan Law now signed for the Devonshire team. They also have former trialist Matt Buse playing for them, the midfielder is the brother of our very own Will Buse and also grew up in the town.

The last time we played…

The last game between the two sides saw Yeovil win 2-1 in what was an entertaining game. In what was a back and forth match Jake Wannell scored the winner in the dying minutes.

The first half saw Truro dominate the opening 15 minutes, with golden chances falling to Rocky Neal, whose shot was blocked by former captain Josh Staunton and Harvey Greenslade  who hit the framework of the goal.

Yeovil had their own chances through Rhys Murphy and Jake Hyde, but the half finished goalless.

The second half was much of the same with Truro controlling the opening exchanges, their pressure ultimately paid off when Rocky Neal finally got his goal after beating the offside trap and slotting past Will Buse.

The Glovers equalised in the 84th minute through Olly Thomas after he played through by midfielder Charlie Cooper. With Yeovil applying the pressure it wasn’t until the dying seconds of added time where Wannell scored the winner.
