COMMUNITY TRUST HELP LOCAL STAR

Every Season each Football League Club receives a share from the Community Shield fund. This year, Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust and Yeovil Town F.C. are pleased to be able to use that money to help and support Great Britain Skeleton star Donna Creighton, who lives in Yeovil.
Donna’s dream is to compete at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. However,she receives no funding to support her life as an athlete, so therefore has to support herself whilst she travels for testing and specialised training on the Push Track at the outstanding facilities at the University of Bath.
As a Skeleton Athlete, Donna must negotiate a series of tricky twists and turns, on a one-person sled that offers little protection from the ice or barriers, while reaching speeds of up to 140km/h.
Last Monday, Trust managers, Sara Bradley and Roy O’Brien had the pleasure of representing both the Trust and the Club and joined the British Skeleton Team at Cumberwell Golf Club in Bradford on Avon.
The day, which combined 18 holes of golf followed by a drinks reception and dinner with Amy Williams MBE (Gold Medallist in Vancouver) was organised to send off the Skeleton team for the season, ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February 2014.
 Speaking about the event, Sara Bradley said: “We were absolutely delighted to represent the Trust at the British Skeleton Golf day and Dinner.
“The whole day was extremely well organised and combined with Nigel Laughton, David Henwood and their team’s gracious hospitality this made the day one we will always remember.
“We gained such a valuable insight into the work that they do and it was lovely to have the opportunity to meet Donna as well as Amy Williams MBE who is not only fantastic Ambassador for future Athletes, but for young women.
“We are pleased and honoured to be able to support Donna and look forward to working with her and the British Skeleton Team in the future.”

PREVIEW: LEICESTER CITY

Yeovil Town are back in action under the lights as they host Leicester City at Huish Park on Tuesday night.
The Glovers go into the game positioned just outside of the relegation zone following a well-earned point away at Bolton at the weekend.
Ed Upson’s long rang strike wasn’t quite enough to secure all three points as Alex Baptiste grabbed a scrappy equaliser late into stoppage time at the Reebok.
Leicester, on the other hand, are lying in third place and on a fine run of form which has seen them go unbeaten throughout September and score at an impressive ratio of 2 goals per game.
At the weekend, the Foxes won 2-1 at home to Barnsley, former England goal scorer David Nugent on target twice, once from the Penalty spot.
Leicester have been given no fewer than seven penalties this season (Nugent converting five of those), and one in each of their last four league games. That does mean however that Leicester have scored more penalties than Yeovil have scored league goals.
As for the squads available, Leicester will be without one man, Neil Danns who was loaned to Yeovil’s opponents last Saturday, Bolton. They also signed Polish International Marcin Wasilewski and Gary Taylor-Fletcher, both free agents through the summer.
Yeovil will have vice-captain Byron Webster available for selection once more after his three match ban finally came to an end at the weekend. However, he’ll have to displace the potential home debutant, Shane Duffy or Danny Seaborne if he wants his position in central defence back.
It could be the first time that the majority of Glovers fans have had chance to see Paddy Madden back in action. The Irish international made his return from injury on Saturday.
For the visitors, both Chris Wood and Sean St Ledger are doubts for the game with hamstring and knee injuries respectively. They could play with skipper Wes Morgan at centre back; Morgan will live long in the memory of Yeovil fans, if he wants to drop a back pass 20-yards short for Paddy Madden much like he did for Lee Morris back in 2007 we would be more than happy.
The two sides have met before during the 2008/09 season. Leicester had dropped into League One and were in the process of getting out at the first attempt.
They beat the Glovers 1-0 at the King Power Stadium and in the reverse fixture the Foxes came out 2-0 victors.
The second game was live on TV but again, Leicester won through goals from Steve Howard and Joe Mattock. But all of that is history; could it be third time lucky for the Glovers?
Tickets for Tuesday night are still available right up until kick off; in a recent radio interview Byron Webster said that Yeovil ‘weren’t far off giving someone a hammering’, you wouldn’t want to miss it, especially if it happens this midweek.
Famous Fans: Who might you meet in line for a hotdog?

REPORT: BOLTON WANDERERS V YEOVIL TOWN

The Glovers were denied all three points thanks to a late Alex Baptiste headed goal.

 

Ed Upson’s rather fortuitous 79th goal opened the scoring before Baptiste equalised on 90 minutes.

 

The first real chance came on 15 minutes when Bolton midfielder Hall struck a 25-yard effort that cannoned off the base of the post and out to safety.

 

New loanee Shane Duffy denied a certain goal on 24 minutes when he threw himself in front of a powerful Ngog shot.

 

Bogdan in the Bolton goal made sure the scores stayed level when he denied the returning Madden. Good work on the left by Andy Williams saw the striker cross to Madden. The Irishman’s first time left footed effort was heading for the corner of the goal but the shot stopper palmed his effort away from danger.

 

At the other end Hennessey had to be alert to make a one handed stop from a Lee strike. The rebound was neatly tidied up Duffy.

 

Yeovil kicked off the second half but were pushed back early on with Ngog and Eagles having shots that went easily wide.

 

The Glovers could have opening the scoring after 50 minutes. Neat build up on the right saw Edwards’ deep cross lad at the feet of Grant.

 

The former Wycombe man controlled the ball, steadied himself but saw his net bound effort well saved by Bogdan.

 

Substitute Jermaine Beckford should have opened the scoring for the hosts on 68 minutes. He managed to race clear of the Yeovil back line but fluffed his shot into the arms of Hennessey.

 

Two minutes later Madden raced onto a ball over the top only to see his lob over Bogdan also cleared the cross bar.

 

The Glovers took the lead on 79 minutes when Upson’s shot from 25 yards seemed to have been gathered easily by Bogdan.

 

With Madden ready to pounce on any fumble the shot stopper somehow managed to let the ball slip through his gloves and through his legs and slowly into the net.

 

Bolton equalised right on 90 minutes when a deep cross found its way to Knight who hooked the ball back across goal, despite the claims the ball had gone out of play. Hall headed the ball against the bar but Baptiste was on hand to head the ball past Hennessey.

PREVIEW: BOLTON WANDERERS V YEOVIL TOWN

Yeovil Town are back in action on Saturday and it’s another long away day for fans and players.

The destination is Bolton Wanderers and the Reebok Stadium, another side recently relegated out of the Premier League.

The Lancashire side are surprising everybody this season – for all the wrong reasons – they currently prop up the Sky Bet Championship table with a grand total of 3 points from their 8 games.

Despite not registering a single win out of their fixtures so far, Bolton have gained creditable draws against Burnley, Reading and Derby, all three of which have previously been victors over Yeovil.

Dougie Freedman’s men are, much like Yeovil, in the process of evolving their squad. Both sides made additions to their squads in the run up to this game, the home side added Neil Danns from Leicester City while The Glovers have Everton youngster Shane Duffy in their ranks.

Duffy, an Irish Under 21 international joins from the Toffees on an initial one month loan deal and is expected to be part of the match day squad with other centre back options few and far between.

Byron Webster misses out once more as his 3-match ban finally comes to an end, while Bristol City loanee Liam Fontaine is unavailable due to injury.

It had been expected that Luke Ayling would be the most likely partner for Dan Seaborne in defence, but the addition of Duffy gives Gary Johnson another option.

The other big news from the Huish Park treatment room is the news that Paddy Madden could well be in line for selection, a brace in a midweek game against a Torquay XI will do his chances no harm.

However; James Hayter, Sam Hoskins and Michael Ngoo all got in on the action as the Glovers ran riot in a 7-1 against the Gulls.

Bolton aren’t without their own injury problems; former Yeovil loanee Craig Davis will be missing as he continues to struggle with an ankle problem.

Elsewhere, Wayne Hennessey will continue in goal after signing an extension to his loan deal as Marek Stech gets closer to being able to play.

Previous encounters between the sides haven’t exactly been a regular occurrence; in 2004 a Bolton side including Fernando Hierro, El Hadji Diouf and 

Les Ferdinand travelled to Somerset for a League Cup tie which the Lancashire side won 2-0.

Prior to that, Warren Patmore has given the Reebok Stadium faithful a scare when the Glovers too the lead in a 2001 FA Cup game. The giant killing wasn’t on the cards however as Bolton came back to win 2-1.

It’s a mere 250 miles from Huish Park to the Reebok, but anyone who does make the decision to travel on the day can buy tickets from the ground.

If you’d prefer to remain in the comfort of your own home, the usual services from BBC Somerset, Glovers Player and the club’s social networks will keep you informed every step of the way.

Famous Fans – Who might you meet in line for a hotdog?

Radio and TV Personality Vernon Kay, Boxer Amir Kahn, Funny man Paddy McGuinness, TV Presenter Emma Forbes and the man behind the most famous English commentary of all time, Kenneth Wolstenholme.

A foot in both camps – who have played for both sides?

Craig Davis, John McGinlay and Dick Pym who played for Bolton in the first FA Cup final at Wembley went onto play for Yeovil and Petters United.

LATEST ODDS FROM SKY BET

We had 40 goals last weekend and we look set for another action packed weekend in the Sky Bet Championship. Read on for Sky Bet’s take on Yeovil’s chances this weekend.
Yeovil have been showing encouraging signs in recent weeks and could easily have taken something from their game against the leaders last weekend.
The Glovers have produced some of their best performances this season on the road. They’ve already won at Millwall and were unlucky not to get more from trips to Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday. They now travel to rock-bottom Bolton, who are yet to win this season, and have not kept a clean sheet in 13 games. With The Trotters in such miserable form Yeovil will fancy their chances of taking something back with them, and look worth backing on the double chance market at evens.
We probably shouldn’t expect a high-scoring affair at the Reebok Stadium, with three of Bolton’s home games this season seeing fewer than three goals. That has also been the case in six of The Glovers eight matches this term, five of which have been goalless at half-time. Given both teams have been better defensively than going forward this season, under 2.5 goals looks a great price at evens.
Other reasons to bet:
Yeovil have had more goals in the second half in six of their last eight matches 1/1 
Yeovil have been level at half-time in five of their last eight matches 5/4 
Remember, if you haven’t already got a Sky Bet account, you can get a completely free £10 when you join and Yeovil will also get £10 when you make your first deposit.

TOFFEE SHANE JOINS GLOVERS

Yeovil Town have secured the loan signing of central defender Shane Duffy.

 

The 21-year-old Irishman joins the Glovers on an initial month loan from Premier League outfit Everton.

 

Duffy has represented Northern Ireland at all youth team levels but in 2010 he opted to represent Republic of Ireland and has done at Under 19 and Under 21 level.

 

In 2011 Shane spent time on loan at Burnley and Scunthorpe United, but was recalled to the Merseyside club in January 2012. He made his Premier League debut as a substitute against Spurs at White Hart Lane.

 

Gary Johnson said: “When we knew Shane was available for loan we immediately enquired about bringing him to Huish Park.

 

“With one of our centre backs injured and another suspended we didn’t want to turn down the opportunity of signing Shane.

 

“This signing suits all parties and as always we are very grateful to Everton Football Club.”

Shane will wear squad number 15 during his stay at Huish Park.

MADDEN RETURNS IN 7-1 VICTORY

Paddy Madden returned to action this afternoon completing 60 minutes in a 7-1 victory over Torquay United.
The game started in frantic fashion with both James Hayter and Madden going close for the Glovers.
It was Hayter who opened the scoring after 12 minutes when he powerfully headed home a Madden cross from 10 yards.
Madden got himself on the scoresheet when he converted a Sam Hoskins cross with a first time shot whilst under pressure from the Torquay centre back.
The visitors pulled a goal back within 20 seconds of the second half starting. Joey Jones was deemed to have fouled the Torquay striker just inside the area. Skipper Lathrope stepped up and drilled the ball past Dunn, despite the keeper getting a hand to the ball.
Just minutes later Michael Ngoo saw his run halted inside the area, but the Liverpool loanee saw his penalty strike well saved by Thompson in the United goal.
On the hour mark Madden made it 3-1 when he was quickest to react when Hayter had his shot palmed away by Thompson. The Irishman made no mistake in slamming the ball home from the edge of the area.
Three minutes later A. Trailist made it 4-1. The midfielder beat two Torquay defenders before firing home from just outside the area.
With 20 minutes remaining a delightful Sam Hoskins free-kick from 25 yards made it 5-1. The former Saints man curled the ball around the wall with his right boot, leaving the United keeper helpless.
Another trialist made it 6-1 when he met a Hoskins corner with a diving header at the back post.
It was left to Ngoo to complete the scoring with three minutes remaining. The striker glided past three defenders and calmly slotted the ball past the advancing keeper.

CLUB TO WELCOME INJURED SOLDIER

On the 10th May manager Gary Johnson recorded a good luck message for Yeovil Town fan Toby Gibbs from the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment who was serving in Afghanistan. (Clip below)
Whilst on patrol around Camp Bastion with his regiment the lorry Toby was traveling in drove over an IED, causing injuries to his leg and back. The IED blew the vehicle sideways, throwing him out causing him to suffer a fractured knee and two broken vertebrae in his back.
On hearing of Toby’s injuries the club have invited him as a guest to the Leicester City match next Tuesday and Gary Johnson has also invited Toby to join himself and the squad for lunch on Thursday 3rd October.
Gary said: "We were all really disappointed to hear about Toby’s injuries. We are all looking forward to seeing him at the Leicester City game and for lunch a couple of days later."
We all wish Toby a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming him to Huish Park on Tuesday.

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN v QPR

Yeovil Town suffered their fourth successive home Championship defeat when they lost to a controversial Charlie Austin penalty against QPR this afternoon.

 

The spot kick, awarded for Dan Seaborne’s challenge on 74 minutes, looked suspect to say the least and was rough justice on a Yeovil side that had more than competed for long periods of the match. Visiting keeper Rob Green was by far the busiest keeper and saved superbly from Liam Davis and Joe Ralls.

 

The penalty conversion was equally tough on the hosts who had seen Austin booked for a crude lunge on Luke Ayling before then diving in the box for a penalty yet not getting a second yellow from fussy referee Gavin Ward.

 

The result means that the Glovers remain in 22nd place after eight games but as the 9,108  fans filed out of Huish Park, they did so with a feeling of Groundhog Day with the game’s major decision going against them.

 

Manager Gary Johnson opted for a 4-5-1 formation to tackle the league leaders and Pre-season favourites managed by Harry Redknapp and containing several established England internationals. One potential future star, Matt Phillips, had his side’s first chance when he shanked his shot horribly wide on eight minutes.

 

Yeovil rose to the occasion well though and Joe Ralls went close with a rising shot before Robert Green dived low to his left to keep out Joel Grant’s effort. Initially, Rangers aim was misfiring with Richard Dunne’s header and Gary O’Neil’s shot way off target.

 

Austin was lucky to only see a yellow card from referee Ward after a late cynical tackle on the halfway line on Luke Ayling, a challenge that many refs would have punished with a straight red card.

 

Austin then shot into the side netting with a fearsome shot, Liam Fontaine injuring himself as he attempted to block the chance and being replaced by Kevin Dawson. This meant a defensive reshuffle with Joe Edwards going to right back and Ayling switching to centre half.

 

Green then saved well from Davis while at the home end, Phillips and Austin both went close late in the first half.

 

The second half began with Yeovil firing on all cylinders and pinning Rangers back in their own half. Green denied Ralls with a brilliant save before parrying from Davis’s drive moments later and then produced an even better dive to thwart Andy Williams’ rising scorcher.

 

The chances missed then proved costly as the game changing moment came on 73 minutes. Matt Phillips knocked the ball past Seaborne and seemed to run into the Yeovil defender before collapsing in a heap. Ref Ward, who had angered Yeovil fans for a series of baffling decisions, gave the decision for a penalty after his assistant flagged furiously and Austin, dubiously still on the pitch after earlier diving for a penalty but not getting it, slammed home the spot kick sending Hennessy the wrong way.

 

To Yeovil’s credit, they refused to let the decision affect their commitment and endeavour but insult was added o injury late on at a free kick when Ed Upson was yellow carded for taking a free kick too quickly. Sub Michael Ngoo sliced a shot wide late on which was the end of Yeovil’s chances and the final whistle was greeted with a crescendo of strong support for the players and criticism for the officials that had once more gone a long way to deny Yeovil their first victory.

LATEST ODDS FROM SKYBET

Home teams couldn’t be beaten in midweek but can an away team end the streak as we head into another action packed weekend in the Sky Bet Championship. Read on for Sky Bet’s take on Yeovil’s chances this weekend.
Yeovil put in a good performance in midweek, as they were unfortunate not to add to the point they picked up at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
In recent years promoted teams have had some impressive results against relegated teams. Since 2011/12 promoted teams have won eight and lost just four of their matches when hosting relegated sides. While they might be big underdogs against the Championship favourites, there is every chance Yeovil could cause an upset. QPR are missing Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson, and have not netted more than once since the opening day. Given this, The Glovers look too big to ignore at 10/11 in the on the double chance market.
That lack of goals for QPR has of course been compensated for by conceding just two goals all season. Therefore we shouldn’t expect too many fireworks. Yeovil’s three home games, and QPR’s three away, have collectively averaged just 1.5 goals per game. Therefore under 2.5 goals looks a great price at 8/11.
Other reasons to bet:
Remember, if you haven’t already got a Sky Bet account, you can get a completely free £10 when you join and Yeovil will also get £10 when you make your first deposit.

PREVIEW: QUEENS PARK RANGERS

Match Sponsor – FedEx UK – Weston

Associate Match Sponsor – Pardoes


Ball Sponsor – T2 Digital
When the fixture lists were released, Yeovil fans could have been forgiven for looking for this Saturday’s fixture as early as possible.
QPR at home could well be the most mouth-watering tie of the Championship season, as the hoops bring their star studded line up (and dugout) to Huish Park.
Harry Redknapp’s men come to Somerset sat top of the Championship following their 0-0 draw with Brighton on Wednesday night.
Alongside Redknapp will be his usual team of Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond as well as former England Manager Steve McClaren. 
Of course, Yeovil have their own national management experience – Gary Johnson took charge of Latvia for two years.
As a statistic to show just how far Yeovil have come, the two side’s latest squad lists have vastly different amounts of international caps to their name.
QPR started with no fewer than 169 full caps in their squad of 18 on Wednesday (Not including the further 162 available from Julio Cesar, Niko Kranjcar and Andy Johnson who missed out). By the time you tot up the others available to Redknapp and co, it comes to a total of 339.
Yeovil’s entire squad, have just 40 – 38 of which come from on loan goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey. (Madden and McCallister have one each)
Interestingly, at the time of writing, the QPR game is Wayne Hennessey’s final one of his initial loan spell; it’ll be up to Gary Johnson if the Wolves loanee has his deal extended for the trip to Bolton and beyond.
It also represents the second game of three that Byron Webster will miss out on through suspension; his sending off against Sheffield Wednesday ensures he will sit in the stands again.
The other known absentees from the Glovers squad will be the same names as before, Paddy Madden is now back into light training, but could still be a couple of weeks away from action and Marek Stech has had a much lighter cast fitted to his broken hand.
Stech is training with the physios but has mentioned he has been doing some sessions with the other keepers – just nothing that involves the use of his hands!
In the QPR treatment room, Junior Hoilett was substituted in the first half against Birmingham at the weekend and missed out altogether as a result in midweek.
The other player who could be a doubt for the Huish Park clash is Nedum Onuoha who was replaced in the 23rd minute with a hamstring injury on Wednesday.
The visitors come into the game in decent form; their midweek draw was only the second time this season they have only failed to gain maximum points, a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield being the other occasion.
Despite their recent status in the top flight, the two sides have met competitively as recently as 2001.
The LDV Vans Trophy paired the sides together and a Chris Giles brace together with a Kim Grant goal made sure it was the Glovers who progressed.
Prior to that, an FA Cup game in 1988 saw the same result, just for the Londoners this time – making it one win each in the history books.
But the history, just like the previous form, counts for nothing as – to rattle out an old cliché – it is 11 v 11 on the day and anything can happen.
Tickets are available for the game but at the time of writing they are few and far between, the advice is to contact the ticket office as soon as possible if you are interested in coming along to Huish Park this Saturday as the game could be a complete sell-out.
A victory for the Glovers would not only bust many weekend betting accumulators, but all those international caps, all those big names will mean nothing if “little old” Yeovil Town write the most brilliant chapter of their Championship story, so far.
So to those of you who are coming, wear your green and white, sing your hearts out and give Gary, Terry, Darren and the squad the momentum they need to battle the big boys.
A Foot in both camps – who have played for both sides?
Max Ehmer, Angelo Balanta, Danny Maguire, Leon Best, Marc Bircham, Martin Cranie, Justin Cochrane, Terrell Forbes, Matthew Rose, Antonio German, Andros Townsend and two of the 1949 Yeovil side, Les Blizzard and Alec Stock.
Famous fans – who might you bump into in line for a hotdog?
Former England cricketer Ashley Giles, Comedian Bill Bailey, badly behaved man Martin Clunes, Actor Michael Crawford as well as a whole host of musicians and TV Characters, including Eddie Hitler from Bottom and Ben Harper from ‘My Family’

REPORT: IPSWICH TOWN v YEOVIL TOWN

Yeovil Town returned to Somerset empty handed after suffering a 2-1 defeat at Ipswich Town.
The green and white of Yeovil Town took the lead late in the second when former Ipswich Town target Joel Grant struck with a 25-yard stunner.
Ipswich equalised on 52 minutes thanks to Daryl Murphy before Aaron Cresswell made it 2-1 to the men in blue.
In a quiet opening period Ipswich had the majority of the play but failed to test Hennessey, although striker David McGoldrick went close for the hosts but his shot went wide of the upright. Fellow striker Daryl Murphy looked certain to at least sting the palms of Hennessey, but Seaborne threw himself in front of the strikers shot to provide a vital block.
Just before the half-time break the Glovers took the lead. Grant picked up a lay off from Williams 25 yards from goal and unleashed an unstoppable effort past Gerkin into the top corner of the net, much to the delight of the travelling faithful.
The Glovers started the second half brightly with Williams causing the Ipswich back line problems with his running off the ball. It was the loanee who had the first real chance of the second half when he latched onto a through ball but his resulting shot hit the side netting.
At the other end Liam Fontaine was on hand to throw himself in front of a goal bound Liam Hyam shot.
The hosts drew on 52 minutes when Cole Skuse headed a deep cross back across goal to the feet of Murphy. The strikers initial shot was blocked onto the cross bar by McAllister but with the defender on the floor the ball landed at Murphy’s feet and he managed to scramble the ball home from close range.
The Tractor Boys took the lead just before the hour mark when left-back Cresswell curled the ball past the diving Hennessey after his first effort was well blocked by Fontaine.
Gary Johnson introduced Kieffer Moore for James Hayter on the hour mark and also replaced Joe Edwards with Liam Davis ten minutes later. Joe Ralls moved to centre midfield with Davis replacing him on the wing.
With the fourth official signalling three minutes of time added on Yeovil threw men forward and could have pulled level when Ralls’ goal bound shot was well palmed away by Gerken.

IPSWICH TOWN PREVIEW

Yeovil Town have never been averse to putting in the hard miles for away days and this week has been one of the most challenging yet for supporters, players and their modes of transport.
Most of the squad and fans only returned from Sheffield late into the evening on Saturday and now will have Portman Road, Ipswich tapped into the Sat Nav for a Tuesday night encounter with the Tractor Boys.
Mick McCarthy’s men currently sit 15th in the table with 7 points to their name including four out of their last two fixtures.
On Saturday they entertained Middlesbrough and David McGoldrick took the plaudits for his brace in a 3-1 win.
As you know, Yeovil came away from Hillsborough with a valuable point to stop the rot of four successive league defeats. However, one man who won’t be able to take part in this, or any of the next three fixtures is Glovers’ vice-captain Byron Webster. He was shown a red card at the weekend and has to sit in the stands for three games.
That should leave a position open for Liam Fontaine to join Danny Seaborne in the heart of the defence.
In the physio’s room, it’s still the same faces as Paddy Madden and Marek Stech keep their recoveries on track. Both of last season’s star names are still a few weeks from returning.
Gary Johnson will know many of his opposing side as three of the starting line-up played for him at Bristol City. Dean Gerken, Cole Skuse and   Paul Anderson had all been under Gary Johnson’s care at Ashton Gate.
The clubs have met once before under the current format of the football league, the sides were paired together in the 2005 Carling Cup first round.
At the time, Yeovil pulled off one of their famous giant killings and defeated the Tractor Boys 2-0; Darren Way and Kevin Gall doing the damage. 
Prior to that meeting, you have to seriously trawl through some history books; aside from one friendly in 1973 the sides hadn’t met since the 1930’s!
Tickets are available on the day for those of you who may make a late decision to travel, but they are at a higher price than those who purchased pre-match.
It’s as good a time as any to remind fans that tickets for the QPR game are selling fast.
Can the Glovers build on their well-earned point at the weekend? If you’re not at Portman Road then tune into Glovers Player or BBC Somerset and stay on Twitter and get all the updates from @YTFCofficial.
Famous Fans; who might you bump into waiting for a hot dog?

REPORT: SHEFFIELD WEDS v YEOVIL TOWN

Joe Ralls’ second half strike ensured Yeovil Town returned to Somerset with a point.
The Glovers had to come back from a first half Atdhe Nuhiu goal to secure a point away at Sheffield Wednesday .
Town were reduced to ten men just before the break when defender Byron Webster saw red for an altercation on the floor with goalscorer Nuhiu.
A lively opening 15 minutes saw both keepers called into action with Hennessey denying Nuhiu and Chris Kirkland denying both Ed Upson and James Hayter.
Just after the 20 minute mark neat link up play between Williams and Hayter saw the ball placed nicely in the path of Ralls but his powerful volley was well saved by Kirkland.
Seconds later the hosts took the lead in controversial circumstances. With assistant Cook flagging for offside referee Eltringham waved play on. Antonio ran clear and squared the ball to the unmarked Nuhiu, who had an easy tap in from close range. Despite the protests from the Yeovil Town players and long discussions from Cook and Eltringham the goal was allowed to stand.
Wednesday keeper Kirkland was the busier of the two shot stoppers and was on hand to keep the hosts in the lead. This time a cross from the right was met by Williams but his header was kept out the former England stopper.
On 40 minutes Webster saw red for a tussle on the floor with Nuhiu. With Webster receiving his marching orders manager Gary Johnson replaced striker James Hayter with new loan signing Liam Fontaine.
Right on the half time whistle an Upson free kick was well saved by Kirkland, who tipped the ball around the post.
It was the hosts who had the first chance of the second half when goal scorer Nuhiu’s curling effort from 20 yards went just over the Yeovil crossbar.
Ten minutes into the second half Yeovil forced their first corner when a goal bound shot from Ralls was headed over. From the resulting corner McAllister’s shot was well blocked, which resulted in a quick break by the hosts but Town managed to get back in numbers to clear any danger.
On 64 minutes the Glovers equalised when loanee Ralls chest and left footed volley from inside the area went past the diving Kirkland and into the far corner.
The hosts thought they had regained the lead when an Antonio shot somehow managed to squeeze under Hennessey, but the goalkeeper was saved of any embarrassment when the ball hit the post and back into his hands.
Despite being a man down the Glovers defended their goal well to secure a well earned point in South Yorkshire.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY PREVIEW

Yeovil Town fans can finally wake from their enforced slumber as the International break has ended and it is full steam ahead in the club’s Championship campaign.
This Saturday, the Sat Nav is set for Sheffield again, not for United this time, but for the blue half, Sheffield Wednesday.
The two sides go into the game straddling the relegation zone in the second tier, Wednesday sit 21st and Yeovil 22nd.
Both sides are still sat on just 3 points. Yeovil’s win came on the opening day of the season away at Millwall whilst Sheffield Wednesday are yet to notch a victory, gaining their points from three draws.
Since the last set of fixtures, not only have players had an international break to contend with, but there has also been the small matter of Transfer Deadline Day.
Owls manager Dave Jones waited until the re-opening of the loan window to secure his latest signing. Wolves defender Roger Johnson has joined on loan and could make his debut on Saturday.
Yeovil were probably the more active of the two sides, securing former defender Liam Fontaine on loan whilst Alan Tate returned to Swansea to have treatment on an injury.
Tate joins Marek Stech and Nathan Ralph on the injury list, however in slightly better news Paddy Madden begun training and running this week.
Saturday may come too soon for the Irish international but the road to recovery has light at the end of the tunnel.
Wednesday’s only real activity on deadline day was to send defender Martin Taylor out on loan to League One outfit, Brentford.
For most of the Yeovil squad the international break was a chance to unwind and recharge the batteries; however two members of the team were called up to represent their country.
It didn’t quite go to plan for both Madden, whose injury kept him from playing for the Republic of Ireland and Wayne Hennessey who was on the bench for both of Wales’ World Cup qualifying defeats.
Since being back in training Yeovil have had a behind-closed-doors friendly against Bournemouth to remove any rustiness in the limbs. The game ended in a 5-0 Yeovil win with goals from Joe Jones, Michael Ngoo, Sam Hoskins, Kieffer Moore and an own goal.
Yeovil’s last two league games were against sides who haven’t met the Glovers in competitive circles before, but that is not the case with Sheffield Wednesday.
For two seasons the sides crossed paths in League One and the head to head doesn’t make pretty reading for Yeovil fans.
The Glovers have never beaten The Owls – three defeats and a single draw since 2010. Of course, those fixtures have not been without incident; a certain Kieran Agard goal in one of the home fixtures got the heart racing. Agard slotted home into an empty net after the Wednesday keeper had clashed with a defender when receiving a drop ball kicked back to the visiting ‘keeper.
But I think we’ve had enough of that kind of drama for one season.
The single draw between the two sides was also a frenetic affair in January 2011. Yeovil held onto a 2-2 draw after seeing two men sent off by Trevor Kettle.
Luke Ayling and Adam Virgo saw red before Giles Coke missed a retaken penalty (having scored the original). The Glovers were thankful to a goalkeeping master class from loanee Stephen Henderson and a makeshift defence that ended up including both Andy and Sam Williams.
Tickets for Saturday’s game are available on the day; if you can’t make it to Hillsborough, both BBC Somerset and Glovers Player will have the usual match day coverage and @ytfcofficial will be tweeting from South Yorkshire.
It’s time to don the Green and White once more and cheer on the Glovers as they seek to climb the table starting this Saturday. 
Famous Fans – who might you bump into getting a hotdog?
All of the Arctic Monkeys, Cricketer Michael Vaughan, Olympic legend Seb Coe and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker.
A foot in both camps – who have played for both sides?
Guy Wittingham, Craig Rocastle, Darren Purse, Lloyd Owusu, Leon Best and 2005 Sheffield Wednesday player of the year, Steve MacLean.

GLOVERS PIP CHERRIES IN FRIENDLY

This afternoon (Tuesday) a Yeovil Town XI defeated a AFC Bournemouth XI 5-0 in a behind closed doors friendly.
Defender Joey Jones opened the scoring for the Glovers when he powerfully headed home a Sam Foley corner after 15 minutes.
On 20 minutes Kieffer Moore curled the ball around Shwan Jalal in the Cherries goal after a jinking run by Michael Ngoo.
Just after the half-time break Sam Hoskins’ cross from the left wing evaded everyone and nestled in the far corner to make it 3-0.
Ngoo got himself on the scoresheet when he was quickest to react after Jahal had saved his penalty.
With five minutes remaining Dawson’s surging run saw his shot blocked on the line only for the ball to deflect off Jahal and into the net.
Yeovil Town: Dunn; Nana, Fontaine, Jones, Davis; Dawson, A. Trailist, Foley, Hoskins; Ngoo, Moore.

ENGLAND FACING TRICKY TEST

Group H leaders England are favourites to take a giant step towards automatic qualification for next year’s World Cup with a win in Ukraine.
The visitors will no doubt be set up to avoid defeat, which would see them maintain control of the group and their odds to top the table come in from 4/11 with Sky Bet….
Ukraine are 11/5 to come out on top, while Montenegro are not out of the equation, though they’re 14/1 to gain the automatic spot having played a game more than their rivals.
England to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 have been popular in the Correct Score Group Betting, but Ukraine have kept four clean sheets on the trot and are 7/2 to win to nil.
Indeed, four of the last six meetings between these sides have been won to nil, three of which have been in England’s favour and they’re 3/1 to manage that feat again with the Football League’s title partner, Sky Bet.
England boss Roy Hodgson has injury and suspension worries up front, though, meaning Rickie Lambert looks set to lead the line after netting in both of his international appearances. 
The Southampton striker heads the goalscorer betting and is available at 7/1 to score first in our Price Boots, while Frank Lampard is 4/1 to score anytime on his 100th appearance for his country.
Remember, if you haven’t already got a Sky Bet account, you can get a completely free £10 when you join and Yeovil Town will also get £10 when you make your first deposit.
As well as that, Yeovil Town will benefit as you bet throughout the season, so make sure you open your account via www.skybet.com/yeovil.

WIN £250K WITH SOCCER SATURDAY SUPER 6

Sky Bet Football League fans have the chance to reap the rewards from their football knowledge this weekend as Soccer Saturday Super 6 focuses on Sky Bet League One.
The six 3pm kick-offs will be the subject of the free-to-play game, with supporters presented with the chance to win £250,000 by predicting the correct score in all six games.
For those torn over their selections, our form guide is on hand as well as Jeff Stelling’s predictions:
Bradford v Brentford
The Bantams will be looking to continue their fine home league form, having beaten Carlisle 4-0 and then Sheffield United 2-0 at the Coral Windows Stadium, when they host Brentford, who have drawn both of their away league games 1-1.
Jeff predicts: Bradford 0 Brentford 1 – After a wobble or two, the Bees will be buzzing again.
Carlisle v Port Vale
Carlisle will attempt to record their first home points of the season against a Port Vale side who have suffered back-to-back 3-1 losses in the league. 
Jeff predicts: Carlisle 1 Port Vale 1 – The Cumbrians conceded 17 in four home games so Vale should get something.
Crawley v Gillingham
Crawley look to build on their 2-0 win at Peterborough when a Gillingham side, who are without a goal in 230 minutes of Sky Bet League One football, visit Broadfield Stadium.
Jeff predicts: Crawley 2 Gillingham 0 – Martin Allen’s boys kept waiting for first league win.
Crewe v Peterborough
Crewe are unbeaten at home this season but their visitors have scored 14 goals in their three away games in all competitions.
Jeff predicts: Crewe 1 Peterborough 3 – Crewe don’t do clean sheets, Posh score for fun.
Rotherham v Sheffield United
This South Yorkshire derby sees unbeaten Rotherham play host to a Sheffield United side looking to record their first win on the road this season.
Jeff predicts: Rotherham 2 Sheffield United 1 – Rotherham to earn first league win over United since 1981.
Tranmere v Stevenage
Tranmere will attempt to treat the Prenton Park faithful to a first home league win against Stevenage, who have scored exactly one goal in their last three games in all competitions.
Jeff predicts: Tranmere 1 Stevenage 0 – Stevenage might struggle to get anything at Prenton Park.

TATE RETURNS TO SWANSEA

Swansea City defender Alan Tate has been ruled out for six to eight weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury while on loan at Yeovil Town.

A scan this week confirmed Tate has suffered a grade two hamstring injury, and the clubs have agreed for the 31-year-old to return to the Swans for treatment and the recovery process.

Tate, who is on loan at the Glovers until January 2, has featured six times for Gary Johnson’s side this season – four appearances coming in the Championship.

INJURY UPDATE

Yeovil Town’s two main injury problems have been wasting no time as they strive to achieve full fitness. Marek Stech and Paddy Madden can be seen putting in the hours under the supervision of physio Simon Baker.

Unfortunately neither player will be back soon although both are making good progress. 
Sadly both will miss the possibility of playing for their countries in the forthcoming Internationals.

V.P.’s DONATE PHYSIO BEDS

Yeovil Town Vice Presidents have donated two high tech treatment beds to the club for the treatment to injured players. 

V.P’s Ron Harding, Chris White, Arthur and Gladys Mounter are pictured with players Ed Upson, Dan Seaborne, physio Simon Baker and manager Gary Johnson.

Speaking after the presentation manager Gary Johnson said: "We are very grateful to the Vice Presidents for their donation. The correct treatment to injured players is vital to their well being and these treatment beds are a vital part of that return to full fitness."

FONTAINE JOINS GLOVERS AGAIN

Town have completed the loan signing of Bristol City defender Liam Fontaine until January 1st 2014.
Liam joins up with manager Gary Johnson for the third time after the defender first joined Yeovil on loan from Fulham in 2004. He then joined Bristol City permanently in 2006 after another successful loan spell.
Since signing on the dotted line for City Liam has made nearly 250 appearances for the Robins.
Gary said: "I am very pleased to have the opportunity to bring Liam back to Yeovil. I know him very well and have spent many seasons working with him in the past. 
The Gaffer continued: "He has great experience in the Championship and we know exactly what we are getting from him. He has worked and played with both Terry Skiverton and Darren Way. Liam is someone who we wont have to spend time with to get into the Yeovil Town mentality."
