Yeovil Town Football Club is proud to announce a new sponsorship with leading hygiene products manufacturer Zidac Laboratories. The sponsorship will see Zidac’s logo feature on the club’s shorts for the 2020/21 National League season.

Following the events of this year, the club has placed a strong emphasis on hygiene and cleanliness, with Zidac supplying hand santiser and disinfectant products to be used by players and staff around the stadium facility.

Zidac, which was first established in 2017 as a manufacturer of personal care products, recently released a hospital grade hand sanitiser designed to meet the growing demand for high-performance products to help in the fight against Covid-19. 

Mark Robinson at Yeovil Town Football Club said;

“As a club we’re grateful to be able to continue to operate while keeping staff, players and visitors safe here at Huish Park. With help from Zidac, we’ve been able to provide products around the stadium so that once our doors are open to fans, everyone can stay protected from the transmission of Covid 19.

Andy Whiting, Sales Director at Zidac Laboratories said:

“It’s very reassuring to see that clubs such as Yeovil Town are taking a proactive approach to keeping its staff and players safe.

“Understandly football fans are keen to experience some normality and see their team perform in person on the stands.

Vanarama’s Fanarama! Yeovil’s season so far, the year that was and what 2020 has to offer!

Super supporter Sheridan Robins offers league sponsors Vanarama her take on 2019 and explains how she first fell in love with the club 

So we’re at the half-way stage – sum up the season for us so far:

“It has been a really enjoyable season to be a fan so far. We have played some excellent passing football and scored a lot of goals.

“The feel-good factor at Huish Park has well and truly returned thanks to Darren Sarll and his recruitment.

“The atmosphere makes you want to attend every game and that is something which has been missing over the past few years. The fans are right behind the lads because the effort is there.”

A battle for promotion wasn’t predicted by everyone, that’s fair to say. Can you stay up there? 

“On paper, I think we have the strongest squad in the league. But there are strong teams up there at the top.

“One thing I will say, is we have the best striker in the league by far. Rhys Murphy could be the difference between getting promoted and not getting promoted. “

Darren Sarll has come in and re-connected the fans and the players. How much credit is he due?

“A huge amount. He came into a broken club with a broken fan base. He has instilled a passion and a winning mentality and has also made us enjoy Non-League.

“There has been no sulking about where we are, there has only been excitement about what we want to achieve. That has meant the fans have bought into it and are enjoying the National League.” 

What will 2020 bring for the club?

“Promotion, I hope. But, more than that I hope to see more exciting football matches and electric atmospheres.

“To return to the Football League at the first time of asking has always been the dream and I don’t think any of us thought that would be the case with how far we had slipped in terms of our losing mentality.”

Your player of the season so far?

“Myles Hippolyte.

“Murphy has been outstanding going forward but the creator of almost all of our good play is midfield maestro Myles.

“His movement and his pace is too much for National League defenders to handle and should Murphy miss out on the golden boot, I would expect him to get player of the season.”

So what has been Yeovil’s high point? 

“I think the best moment has been the victory away at Solihull. That match had everything. Luke Wilkinson scored the winner and ended heroically in goal.

“He made a match-winning save in the final minute and it is at that point, I realised just how good this team is and just how close they are!” 

Everyone loves a good away day! What one sticks out as your favourite and why?

Bromley away was quite something. We did not play our best and Bromley are up there with us but somehow we managed to secure a point with a 97th minute equaliser. Hundreds of Yeovil fans were sent into euphoria and suddenly the abject performance was forgotten. 

Why did you first start following the club and how did you first get involved?

“Yeovil Town is in the family. My great uncle Gerry Lock was chairman and my Great Nan’s ashes have been scattered on the pitch.

“My Dad and Grandma took me to my first match when I was 15 and I haven’t looked back since. We bleed green and white and Dad and I still have season tickets.”

What makes Yeovil so unique and so special to you? 

“It is a family club which puts the badge above anything else. It is a big part of all the fans’ lives and I can’t imagine not going to Huish Park every week.”

Tough one to end with….what’s your favourite memory of Huish Park?

“It has to be the Play-Off Semi-Final Second Leg against Sheffield United in 2013. 1-0 down from the first leg and scored goals after five minutes and 85 minutes.

“We played so well and thoroughly deserved our place at Wembley. The celebrations at full time were so special and I was right next to where the players were. What a season and what a team!!”

COMMERCIAL | Sky Bet League Two preview

Four teams battling out for their involvement in what is often described as the ‘richest game in football’ – the Sky Bet Championship play-off final.

Leeds’ involvement has upset the typical status quo with the club often found bouncing around mid-table at this point. Marcelo Bielsa has managed to guide the Whites to third in the table in his first full season in charge.

Aston Villa and Derby are in for the second consecutive seasons while West Brom have secured top-six as many expected following their relegation from the Premier League.

What we have though is an incredibly strong line-up with each of the four teams able to make a case for good enough to take on England’s elite in August.

The first of the semi-finals is a West Midlands derby as Aston Villa host West Brom in the first leg before the return fixture at the Hawthorns on Tuesday.

Aston Villa have set a club record for most consecutive wins this season with ten, and the fact that the run came in the second-half of the season means many have put them down as the favourites for the play-offs.

The winning run came to an end in final week, though. A draw away at Leeds, where Bielsa ordered his players to allow Villa to score in an act of extraordinary sportsmanship, was followed by a defeat to Norwich on the last day.

West Brom’s form hasn’t been exceptional but they are an incredibly difficult side to face at the Hawthorns. The Baggies have won their last five in front of their own supporters, fantastic form despite the surprise sacking of Darren Moore which some expected would damage their post-season prospects.

A concern for James Shan will be their record on the road in recent weeks. Before heading to Leeds, West Brom were one of the best away sides in the division but since that 4-0 hammering at Elland Road they have won just one away game.

Its three defeats in five away since then which could set this up to be a tie which will be all but decided in the first leg. That said, the circumstances show that it was a difficult run of games.

They faced a Derby side who had to win to secure a play-off spot and the same applies to Bristol City and their play-off aspirations when they travelled there at the beginning of April.

There have also been visits to Reading and Millwall, who were both battling the drop, but the solo win during that time offers hope. They beat Brentford 1-0 who, despite finishing in 11th, had the third-best home record in the division.

Aston Villa’s aspirations have obviously been boosted since that late run but it’ll be intriguing to see how they can bounce back now that has come to an end. While Villa are the form team, West Brom have been a constant feature in the top-six throughout the campaign.

Waiting for them in the final will be Leeds or Derby. Leeds are favourites to win the play-offs – but their recent form has left some questions.

They’ve finished the regular season on the back of four winless games, two of those against teams at the bottom who only had 10 men. Bielsa isn’t worried and he’ll be hoping his squad feel the same.

Leeds have been superb throughout large parts of the campaign but their issue is putting the ball in the back of the net, despite creating plenty of opportunities.

The one positive for the Whites going into this tie is the fact they have dominated Derby twice this season already. They hammered them 4-1 at Pride Park in the second week of the campaign, while also securing a convincing 2-0 win at Elland Road.

Leeds need to find that spark again and it is there. A lot has changed since those two regular season meetings which sets it up to be an encounter that could go either way.

In Derby, they take on a team in great form with defeat a rarity at the end of the campaign.

Frank Lampard’s debut in management has seen the Rams return to the play-off picture and whatever happens in the end, the four teams can view their seasons as a success.

It’s not a certainty – but finishing higher does give you a slightly better chance of success according to the history of this competition.

In 14 play-off finals since the league was re-branded to the Championship, only three teams have failed to make Wembley when finishing in 3rd (Brighton in 2016, Nottingham Forest in 2010 and Ipswich in 2005).

In 50% of those finals, the team finishing in 3rd has been promoted to the Premier League. Most recently that was Fulham in 2018, and prior to that it was Norwich in 2015 after they beat Middlesbrough at the national stadium.

Blackpool (2010) and West Ham (2005) are the only teams who finished in 6th and went on to win the play-off final.

Probability of success based on recent history:

  1. Leeds – (3rd – 7/14)
  2. Aston Villa (5th – 3/14)
  3. West Brom (4th – 2/14)
  4. Derby (6th – 2/14)

All eyes will be on Sunderland’s performance in the League One play-offs after missing out on their initial aim of automatic promotion, and they face one of the toughest ties available in the division by coming up against Portsmouth.

Jack Ross’ men were beaten by Pompey at the Checkatrade Trophy final and Portsmouth were the only team in the top-seven who were able to beat Sunderland in the league.

A team that have picked up points in 41 of their 46 games this season would usually end up promoted but Sunderland finished in fifth. Draws held them back throughout the campaign, their 19 being considerably higher than the majority of other teams in League One.

They are the team that most people have followed based on their recent history. The Black Cats suffered consecutive relegations from the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship, the downfall documented for all to see on on-demand TV.

There was the expectation that they would bounce straight back up but it may not work out like that. The positive is that the club has found itself again with supporters re-engaging at their lowest point.

It’s a tried and tested formula that has worked for teams in the past and Sunderland will have to do the same. Those that have struggled often benefit from the drop to then get promoted and come back stronger – that’s the aim for Ross’ men.

They’re up against three very talented sides though who can all make a case for deserving a spot in the Championship next season. Charlton, Portsmouth and Doncaster are the other three teams who will be hoping that they will be lifting the trophy at Wembley.

The most intriguing tie comes from Portsmouth v Sunderland – two clubs who would have hoped to have finished higher than their respective positions.

Sunderland can take confidence from the fact not many sides have been able to beat them. They’re a tough team to come up against and the ability to avoid defeat is key here. The Black Cats have proven throughout the season that they can do it, although Portsmouth are one of the teams who have been able to get past them.

The benefit of that Checkatrade Trophy final is that the one side who make it to the play-off final will have experience of playing on the big stage this season.

That was the main focus of both managers after that game. The trophy was nice to win, but ultimately the primary aim is based on success in the league and the day itself can only benefit in the long-run.

In the other tie, Charlton’s fantastic season has seen them sneak into third on final day and set up a meeting with Doncaster, who had to wait until game 46 to secure their top-six spot.

Lee Bowyer has managed to keep the Addicks at the top end of the division throughout the course of his managerial career – guiding them to the play-offs last year which ended in a semi-final defeat against Shrewsbury.

They’ll be better for the experience though and have kicked on with some decent recruitment. The headline addition has been Lyle Taylor, who has established himself as one of the division’s top strikers during his season at the club.

A defeat to in-form Oxford is the only time they’ve dropped points in their last eight league games. Since that loss, it’s been three wins, 10 goals scored, with none conceded.

This isn’t just a team hitting form, it’s a team which has form alongside the consistency across the 46-game period.

That’s not to say that Doncaster have little chance of progression. Grant McCann has done a fantastic job with a talented group of players. The attacking element has been the most eye-catching, with John Marquis regularly finding the net.

Mallik Wilks has enjoyed a strong loan spell from Leeds while there’s been a balance of goal contribution from the midfield. The concern for Rovers, though, is a lack of consistency throughout the season.

They’ve been up there in the right part of the table, but the results have fluctuated between periods of success and ones with dropped points. Four wins through September and another run from March into April have been coupled with a five-game run without victory.

A final day win may give them a boost given how it’s been rare that they’ve failed to follow up victory with at least a draw the game after.

Unlike the Sky Bet Championship, the League One play-offs do not historically favour those who finish as the ‘top seed’ in 3rd.

Using the same criteria (the 14 seasons of the current division structure), the 3rd-placed team have only been promoted on four occasions.

The best position to finish in seems to be fourth, which will be good news for Portsmouth supporters. The fourth-placed team have gone up five times, most recently being Rotherham in the 2017/18 season.

Bad news for Sunderland, the play-offs don’t favour those who finish fifth. Only two teams who have ended in that position have been promoted to the Championship, and those teams were Sheffield Wednesday in 2005 and Barnsley in 2006.

Doncaster are the outsiders but recent history has shown how those who end in sixth can finish as the winners. Millwall (2017) and Barnsley (2016) are two teams who have finished the lowest of the four sides but earned their spot in the Championship.

They also join Scunthorpe in 2009 as being the sixth-placed teams who would end up promoted.

Probability of success based on recent history:

  1. Portsmouth (4th – 5/14)
  2. Charlton (3rd – 4/14)
  3. Doncaster (6th – 3/14)
  4. Sunderland (5th – 2/14)

While history shouldn’t be looked into with great detail when deciding a play-off winner, it does show us how the League Two competition is usually the most open.

The phrase you hear the most around the time of the play-offs is that it’s a “lottery”. To some extent it is, but form and consistency across the season play a bigger part, although this division has proven to support the above cliche.

The final day decided who would finish fourth and who would come in seventh. Newport managed to snatch that last spot with a late tap-in from Jamille Matt, while Mansfield were beaten by MK Dons who leapfrogged them into the automatic promotion spots.

It is the opposite of the other divisions here, with those who finish the lowest of the four teams having the better chance of success.

In the last 14 finals, the team who have ended in 7th have won on five occasions, most recently that was Blackpool in 2017 and then AFC Wimbledon the season before that.

It is then a straight split between the other three positions. In the remaining nine finals, it’s worked out that three teams in each position has ended up with promotion.

You have to go back to Fleetwood in 2014 for the last side to finish in fourth and get promoted. While we often see the top seed in the final in the Championship, it’s common that they don’t make it to Wembley in League Two.

There are obviously the five teams who were beaten along the way by those in seventh. They are joined by Shrewsbury (2011), Bury (2009) and MK Dons (2007) as being the eight fourth-placed teams not to reach the final.

That will give Newport fans some optimism – although it highlights just how much of a lottery the League Two play-offs typically are.

Probability of success based on recent history:

  1. Newport (7th – 5/15)
  2. Forest Green (5th – 3/15)
  3. Tranmere (6th – 3/15)
  4. Mansfield (4th – 3/15)

COMMERCIAL | Sky Bet League Two preview

Lincoln City continue to impress as they moved four points clear at the top with a 6-2 hammering of Port Vale last time out.

It was the Imps’ tenth victory of the season, two more than any other side in the division.

It’s no surprise to see them sit top of the form charts at the moment with four wins in their last five, and they are capable of adding to that when they take on a Cambridge side who are struggling for results at the moment.

United are on a run of four consecutive losses, and now sit inside League Two’s relegation zone.

Hoping for a potential slip-up will be Exeter, who continue to put the pressure on Lincoln at the top.

They travel to Grimsby who have experienced an upturn in results. The hosts have won their last two and will be looking to push themselves further up the table with victory here.

Newport are level on points with Exeter, and they take on a Crawley side who have been hit-and-miss in their last five encounters.

It’s been a win/loss pattern for Town, but they have won their last four in front of their own fans which makes them the best home side in the division at the moment.

Two sides also on winning runs are MK Dons and Tranmere, with the latter traveling to take on Yeovil who are without a win in six in all competitions.

Tranmere have won their last three in the league and find themselves as one of the best away teams in the division currently with two wins and two draws on the road.

Milton Keynes have also secured victory in their last three games, but they face a tricky task against a Northampton side who have picked up points in four of their last five.

They also beat Forest Green last time out, showing that they are capable of beating teams at the top.

Rovers will be looking to make amends as they take on Cheltenham, who are one point above the relegation zone with no win in their last five.

Bury are another side aiming for the top-seven, but they could be beaten by a side lower than them as Notts County enjoy a revival under Harry Kewell’s guidance.

The Magpies have won their last three games, which includes a win over Crawley who sit level on points with Bury.

Notts have been scoring goals in recent weeks, but their 26 goals conceded is the joint-highest in the division. That makes Sky Bet’s enhanced offer of a Notts County win with both teams scoring at 9/1 an interesting bet.

Macclesfield are still searching for their first victory of the season, and they come up against Carlisle who have three losses in their last five.

The hosts have just four points from 13 games but they know a win here could go a long way in their hopes for survival.

COMMERCIAL | Sky Bet League Two preview

League leaders Lincoln City suffered just their second loss of the season during the week and they will look to bounce back at Sincil Bank when they welcome a Crewe side with one goal and one point to their name away from home this season.

Third travel to fifth as Newport County visit Forest Green – who are something of the draw specialists at home with four out of five home games in the league ending in a stalemate this season.

The draw – on offer at 12/5 for this one looks of real appeal given the stats.

Second-placed Exeter take their hot streak on a shorter trip than usual as they visit Yeovil on the back of four wins out of five. The Glovers have lost three in four so Sky Bet’s Price Boost of Exeter to win and both teams to score at 5/1 looks like the way to go here.

Tranmere Rovers were impressive in their win over leaders Lincoln last time out, but travel to a Morecambe side that have improved recently with two wins from the last three.

Another big game sees Colchester, who currently sit in fourth, make the trip to seventh-placed Stevenage with just one point separating the two teams ahead of kick-off. 

MK Dons managed to stop the rot last time out with their first win in six but they’re still in the play-off places as they play host to Cheltenham, who’ve won just twice this season.

Oldham sit just outside the play-off spots after playing out three straight draws, but there should be a result one way or the other as they face Carlisle United at home as the visitors have only drawn once all season.

Bottom side Macclesfield play host to a Notts County side that seems to have found its feet under Harry Kewell after a dreadful start – the Magpies having gone unbeaten in their last four while winning their last two. 

Cambridge are second bottom after four defeats in their last five as they travel to Crawley – who are another side who usually get a result with five wins and five defeats out of 11 games played so far. 

Bury have only lost one in six and sit just outside the play-off spots as they play host to Mansfield Town – who have only lost one in six themselves with two wins and three draws.

Grimsby Town stopped their worrying run of five straight defeats with a win last time out and they’ll hope to take that confidence into their home game with Port Vale.

Northampton Town are having a tough time of things with just one win all season but there is some hope as they head to Swindon Town as the hosts haven’t won in three games at home with two draws and a defeat.
