MATCH PREVIEW | Yeovil Town – Wealdstone

Yeovil Town return to Huish Park on Bank Holiday Monday with a National League clash against Wealdstone.

After a narrow defeat on the road to play-off hopefuls Halifax, the Glovers will look to bounce back against another side mid-table in the Stones.

Not lacking motivation, Charlie Lee’s side will be hungry to exact some revenge after a frustrating defeat earlier in the season against the North West London outfit.

Charlie Lee’s thoughts

Speaking about the fixtures in quick succession, Lee said; “There’s a reason why it’s Saturday, Monday, I haven’t worked it out, maybe there is a good reason for it and somebody will tell me one day.

“I just have to help the players prepare and make sure they’re ready for it. They’ll do what they always do and get themselves out there.

“We have a few injuries from today (against Halifax), we’ll assess them and see how they are (for the game).”

Team news

Glovers fans should expect some rotation to Lee’s side with such a quick turnaround in fixtures.

Charlie Wakefield remained on the sidelines with illness in Halifax, but should he recover in time, the forward could return on Monday afternoon.

A foot in the opposition camp

Wealdstone have surprised many be avoiding the relegation conversation almost all-together this season. This is a credit to manager Stuart Maynard who as assembled a competitive squad on a part-time budget.

This Wealdstone squad includes a familiar face in Rhys Browne, who played for the Glovers in League Two under Darren Way.

In front of goal, the Stones have relied on the form of former Torquay United forward Josh Umerah. After netting just once in the league for the Gulls, Umerah has settled in perfectly at the Vale this season, finding the back of the net 15 times.

Have we met before?

Since their promotion to the National League after 32-years away, the two sides have met three times, with both sides winning once and one draw.

The first game last season was a thrilling 2-2 draw at Huish Park, with current interim manager Charlie Lee on the scoresheet and current Yeovil winger Charlie Wakefield starting for the Stones. Later that season, the Glovers were the 2-0 victors at the Vale, with a certain Sonny Blu Lo-Everton starting for Wealdstone that day.

Earlier this season, the Glovers fell to a 2-1 defeat at the Vale.
