Yeovil Town face the long trip to Norfolk this Saturday (3pm) to face King’s Lynn Town in National League action.

Saturday’s game finds two in-form sides face each other, with Charlie Lee looking to maintain his unbeaten start as Yeovil Town interim manager.

The hosts are fighting for their lives in the National League relegation zone, and have restored hope after victory over Bromley on Tuesday night.

Charlie Lee’s thoughts

Speaking about the support he’s received from supporters since taking the role, Lee said; “I want the supporters to keep doing that (support against Barnet) for us.

“It’s been a brilliant week and that’s because of them. If they keep supporting the way they have been, the players will do their job to the best of their ability every game.”

Team news

Speaking pre-match, Lee confirmed that Grant Smith was ready for a return to action, however Ted Cann remains available for selection with his loan from West Bromwich Albion due to expire next week.

Olufela Olomola is a doubt due to a knock he picked up against Odd Down, whilst Max Hunt, Josh Staunton & Jack Robinson are out with injuries.

A foot in the opposition camp

Since former Bristol Rovers caretaker boss Tommy Widdrington took the reigns at King’s Lynn, he has ignited a survival charge in Norfolk. At one stage, the Lynn looked dead and buried, but they now sit just three points from safety.

There will be a familiar face leading the line for King’s Lynn in Gold Omotayo. The former Glovers forward signed for the Linnets in pre-season and has four goals in all competitions this season.

Have we met before?

This weekend’s game is just Town’s second trip to King’s Lynn. Last season, the two sides met at the Walks on the opening game of the season, with Luke Wilkinson and Courtney Duffus scoring in a 2-2 draw.

Later that season, the Glovers were the 3-1 victors at Huish Park, thanks to a Tom Knowles double in the first half followed by a late Emmanuel Sonupe strike.

The two sides met once again on the opening day of the season, but this time the result did not go Town’s way, with Matt Worthington’s sending off the deciding factor in a 2-1 victory for the Linnets.
