Yeovil Town will be looking for a reaction against Welling after a lacklustre performance in midweek away to Chippenham Town.

The Glovers winning streak in all competitions came to an end last weekend in the FA Trophy after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Torquay United. The league-winning streak also came to an end after a 1-1 draw on Tuesday night. Looking on a more positive note for Town fans is that Yeovil are unbeaten in the league across the last 14 games and will be hoping Cooper and Co will continue their good form.

Welling United have been very up and down in terms of form this season currently sitting 22nd in the league but are coming off the back of a midweek win against another Somerset side, Taunton. The fixture saw the Wings beat the Peacocks 2-2 (8-7 on pens).

Manager Mark Cooper is taking no precautions when it comes to the London team, even if they are third from bottom. He said: “We have done as much due diligence as we can and we will try and negate their threats, but when we do what we really do we take some stopping.

The ex-Swindon boss also spoke about the “bonus” of having Jake Wannell back after time on the sidelines with an injury.

Striker Rhys Murphy is available for the match even though he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Chippenham, due to the suspension taking seven days to come into action.

Welling United boss Danny Bloor spoke about how he loves games like Yeovil. He said: “They’re favourites, they’re flying high. They’ll come here expecting to win, very few people will give us any chance whatsoever. They’re the games I love, that’s when you can cause an upset.”

The key man for the London team is midfielder Kain Adom who has scored three goals in the last five games for Welling. Another name for the travelling supporters to look out for is former Glover Tristan Abrahams, who had a spell at Huish Park in the 18/19 season.
