Yeovil Town is looking to make it 14 wins in a row when they face Farnborough FC at Huish Park under midweek lights.

In what will be Town’s last game at home for a month, they will be hoping to put on a good display for the Huish Park faithful.

The Hampshire side are no pushovers however lying eighth in the league with only one loss themselves in their last five games.

Manager Mark Cooper isn’t expecting an easy match against the part-timers. He said: “We don’t expect any pushovers. As much as we’re thinking it will be a tough game I’m sure Farnborough will be thinking the same thing.”

The 54-year-old will have to make changes to the starting lineup for the first time in a while as well, with him confirming Alex Whittle will miss the game due to suspension and some players picking up “bumps and bruises”.

Cooper’s selection headache will have worsened (or bettered) after a brace from on-loan forward Sonny Cox at the weekend. With all the managers front-line in-form is a nice dilemma to have for the ex-Barrow man.

Alex Whittle misses out after picking up his fifth yellow of the season, with Jamie Sendle-White still out injured.

Farnborough boss Spencer Day believes his team are up for the challenge against the Glovers. He said: “We’re looking forward to it, because if you don’t what’s the point in going.

“Everything is up against us, you know with the greatest respect to Yeovil, they’re on a fantastic run great team, but I don’t think they’re going to win 40 straight games, someone’s going to end it so why can’t it be us.”

Day was also very vocal in his opinion on playing in midweek claiming he’ll be “happy once they go back to one game a week.”

Defensive midfielder Taylor Maloney is the key man for the Boro having played in 15 games for the Hampshire team this season.

The Yellows will be without defenders Edon Pruti (suspension) and Jake Ball (injury). Ex-Glover Sid Nelson is touch and go after illness ruled him out at the weekend.
