Yeovil Town are back at Huish Park tomorrow evening (7:45pm), facing Bromley in National League action.
Last time out, the Glovers returned to winning ways against Dover, and will now be hoping to carry momentum into the clash with the Ravens.
In recent weeks, the visitors haven’t been able to pack the punch they possessed in the first half of the season, having not won in the National League since late January.
Darren Sarll’s thoughts
Speaking following victory over Dover, Sarll said; “We’ve still got so much to do with our forward play, our goals came from (Ben) Barclay and (Dale) Gorman. It is pleasing for goals to come from set-plays as our deliveries deserve goals.
“I was astounded by there physical performance of our players, I thought they were magnificent.”
Luke Wilkinson was a notable absentee last Saturday afternoon and Tuesday’s game could come just too soon for the skipper.
Grant Smith missed out against Dover due to a groin injury, so Ted Cann looks likely to start at Huish Park.
Despite returning to training on grass last week, Max Hunt will sit out against the Ravens.
A foot in the opposition camp
It’s been a difficult 2022 for Bromley on a National League front, with the Ravens winless since January. However, Andy Woodman’s side are just one win away from Wembley after reaching the FA Trophy semi-final.
In the centre of the Ravens’ defence stand two familiar faces, Omar Sowunmi and Byron Webster are both formerly of Yeovil Town. Webster is fondly remembered at Huish Park for his role in the Glovers’ promotion to the Championship.
Have we met before?
Fixtures against the Ravens are typically dramatic affairs. In Darren Sarll’s first season, the Glovers claimed four points from the two games between the sides, Town’s win came in September 2019 at Huish Park, goals from Charlie Lee, Jimmy Smith and an own goal extended a winning run to seven games. Just two months later, a stoppage time Rhys Murphy goal secured a point for the Glovers at Hayes Lane.
Last season saw three fixtures between the two sides, with the Glovers winning two of them. In November 2020, a Gabby Rogers strike in extra time secured passage to the FA Cup Second Round. Just one month later, Sarll’s side travelled to Hayes Lane once again and secured their first National League win of the season.
Earlier this season, wonder strikes from Tom Knowles and Charlie Wakefield ensured Yeovil returned to Somerset with three points.
