W*ymouth manager Brian Stock has said this weekend’s FA Cup tie against Yeovil Town is an opportunity to exorcise the ghost of their defeats at the hand of the Glovers last season.

The Terras were beaten 3-0 at the Wessex Stadium last January and then sunk 3-1 thanks to a Rhys Murphy hat-trick when they came to in February.

Speaking to the Dorset Echo, Stock said: “We owe them one, first and foremost.

“We’ve put in two disappointing performances in the league and we’re looking to rectify that.

“What an atmosphere that’s going to be. There’s no easy game but given the local derby at Yeovil it’s one I’m definitely looking forward to.

“Usually revenge isn’t necessarily spoken about when teams beat you in the past but I suppose it’s something slightly different here because it’s Yeovil.

“It’s one that means a lot to the supporters. I’m sure it will be the talk of the town at the moment. It’s an exciting time.
