Yeovil Town will be looking to get back to winning ways after getting knocked the FA Cup on Sunday evening.

The good performance against Wrexham AFC will hopefully inspire the Glovers squad to turn around their slight dip in form. Even with being in the cup at the weekend the Somerset side remain top of the National League South five points above second with a game in hand.

Bath City however dropped to sixth in the league after a loss to Chelmsford, a game in which they led 2-0, against ten men. The Romans are also in a poor run of form having not picked up a league win since the 11th November – comfortable 3-0 victory over Aveley.

With both side looking to regain their early momentum, it will be a tough away trip for the visiting Yeovil squad.

Manager Mark Cooper spoke after the Wrexham game about how his team wanted Wednesday to come. He said: “There is no disappointment from us today, it’s just pure positivity and desperate for Wednesday to come along. We’re desperate to play.

“I know we wanted we wanted to push the game back but we feel we could play again now.”

Some good news has come the Glovers way, after it was announced centre-half Morgan Williams has extended his stay at the club until 2026 which will no doubt be boost for defender. Williams, 24, also spoke about how “the focus is now on Bath” after the defeat in North-Wales.

Rhys Murphy will be ruled out of the game as he will serve his one match ban for accumulating five yellow cards, Jamie Sendles-White is still out injured.

After their 2-3 defeat on Saturday boss Jerry Gill was very damning about his sides performance. He said: “Brutally honest, the better side won. I don’t think we lost in the right way today. It was night and day what we’ve been…we have to react on Wednesday.”

Twerton Park, the home of Bath City.

With a sellout at Twerton Park, the ex-Glover also spoke about how special the game will be for everyone involved. He said: “TP [Twerton Park] under the lights is always special, but this one will be electric.

“When I see a packed out packed popular side as you walk up the tunnel, I get a feeling of pride and passion that only Twerton Park can give you.”

The Romans have a number of talented players but Cody Cooke is one that stands out. The forward has bagged seven goals this season but has been in prolific form recently, scoring five in the last five games.

First choice goalie Will Buse is ineligible to play against his parent club, meaning Slav Huk will start, but there will be two former Glovers in the Bath squad; Jordan Dyer spent a short amount of time on loan at Huish Park from his former club Bristol City, whilst Ewan Clark spent a stint at HP.

Scott Wilson, who has a fair few goals this season, did spent a short time on trial at Yeovil the pre-season before last.
