Yeovil Town put their unbeaten home record on the line once more when 16th place Weston Super-Mare pay a visit to Huish Park on Tuesday night..

This may, or may not, be considered a Somerset Derby, both sides to lie within the county boundaries, but ‘Derby’ might be pushing it a bit.

The Glovers are hoping to build on their 1-0 win over Havant and Waterlooville on Saturday.

In terms of team news; Jordan Young is available before sitting out the next two away games after this midweek match up, the forward picked up his 10th yellow card at the weekend.

It’s expected that Alex Whittle will be missing though, he’s been forced off early on each of the last two outing for the Glovers, Jay Foulston a likely replacement in the starting line up. Whilst it’s expected that Charlie Cooper could be involved in a match day squad for the first time in a while.

The Glovers are still missing a trio of significant forward options with Rhys Murphy, Jake Hyde and Olly Thomas all out through injury.

The Super-Mare’s (I couldn’t think of their actual nickname when writing this) will bring a certain Reuben Reid with them to Huish Park.

Reid had two spells as a Glover and has nine goals in 26 appearances for Weston this season, however, hasn’t been named in a match day squad during February.

Other than Reid, Dayle Grubb leads their goal scoring charts with seven for the season in the league. 

Speaking after his side’s 2-1 win over Hemel on Saturday, Weston boss Scott Bartlett said;

“These are the games that you look forward to, these are the games that you want. Yeovil are doing really well, I’ve worked with Mark for a long time and they’re having a fantastic season… I think sometimes at home it might more difficult for Yeovil, than it will be away.

Teams are coming there to shut up shop, but we won’t do that, we can come and have a right good go, we know how strong they are, powerful they are, how good their squad is, Mark is an excellent coach, they’ll be really well drilled, they’ll know everything about us, we can go there as a club and give it our best shot.

It’s certainly a game we are looking forward to, after we’ve played that one, I hope they can go on and get the job done and go up, because they’ve had a difficult time as a club over the last period.”



When We Last Met.

Yeovil went to Weston Super Mare and picked up a 3-2 win earlier in the season, goals from Jordan Young, Jamie Sendels White and Frank Nouble giving the Glovers all three points away from home.
