Yeovil Town will want to carry on their good form on Tuesday night as they play host to local rivals W*ymouth in the National League South. 

The Glovers are currently on an eight game winning streak, and three points against The Terras could see them potentially open a six point gap on second place Bath City.

Weymouth will be a tough proposition for the Somerset side as they haven’t lost in the league since the fifth of September. However they have only won two of their last five league games.

Mark Coopers men have looked dangerous over the last 10 games and their current form is up there with the best in Europe. Another win for the Somerset team will see them join the likes of Fenerbahce and PSV Eindhoven on a nine game winning streak.

The in form player for Yeovil has been striker Rhys Murphy, who after rejoining the club in the summer has gone on to score six goals in twelve games.

Another player who has found form in the early part of the season is Jordan Young. The young forward, who joined in January, found it difficult to adjust to life in the National League. However the Scotsman has relished his role playing off the wing or in behind the striker so far this campaign.

Yeovil have no new injuries or suspensions to worry about, however Murphy and Alex Whittle both sit on four yellow cards so will need to be careful.

Weymouth will be relishing the chance to get one over their bitter rivals, especially if it means putting an end to Yeovil’s incredible run of form.

Manager Bobby Wilkinson has called on his supporters to make themselves heard at Huish Park. He said: “ The fans have always been a 12th man since the day I came in… I’m calling on the fans to be loud and proud.”

Wilkinson feels his team will have to play “good football” to get the fans going and “will try everything to make them proud on the night”.

The key man for the South coast side will be striker Dan Roberts who found himself in the National League South side team of the week for his performance against Eastbourne Borough.

Another player of note for The Terras is 19-year-old Italian forward Ezio Touray, who has impressed since joining. The ex-Watford player has scored three goals in four games so far this season.

The ex-Bracknell boss will have a full squad to pick from as well. Wilkinson himself is back on the touch line after serving a one game suspension.
