PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v CARLISLE UNITED

31 March 2017

All you need to know ahead of Town’s match against Carlisle United in Sky Bet League Two (3pm).


Town return to Huish Park off the back of a dramatic encounter at Exeter City.


Solid and clinical for 88 minutes, the Glovers succumbed to three goals in the closing minutes of the match at St James Park to surrender a 3-0 lead.


The result condemned Town to their 16th draw of the campaign - much to boss Darren Way’s frustration.


His side will be looking to put the outcome at Exeter and sequence of single points picked up to bed when an out of sorts Carlisle make the 337-mile trip to Somerset.


The Cumbrians, who had been in the automatic promotion places for the majority of the season, suffered a 2-0 loss to Crewe Alexandra last weekend which saw them drop out of the play-offs for the first time since September.


It was Keith Curle’s outfit’s sixth defeat in seven matches (they drew the other) but the Bristolian manager still has his sights set firmly on a top seven finish.


Curle has recruited two players this week with forwards Ben Tomlinson and Samir Nabi joining on non-contract terms and a deal until the end of the season, respectively.


Striker Shaun Miller is suspended after receiving his marching orders against Crewe, while top scorer Jason Kennedy (groin) has been out of action since January and is unlikely to be available on Saturday.


Head-to-head

Town haven’t won in their last nine fixtures in all competitions against Carlisle (D3 L6).


Their last win over the Cumbrians came in 2011 at Brunton Park courtesy of goals from Jonathan Obika and Dean Bowditch. 


A solitary strike from Obika in the same season gave Yeovil their last three points against Carlisle at home.


Last time out, Yeovil tested Carlisle’s resilience with a second-half comeback as the Cumbrians held out to claim their seventh consecutive home victory.


Defender Shaun Brisley’s worldie and Charlie Wyke’s header put the hosts 2-0 up at half-time before Nathan Smith grabbed a rare goal to set up an exciting finish.


Referee

Trevor Kettle will take charge of his 31st game of the season when Town host Carlisle.


Mr Kettle has awarded 127 yellow cards so far this campaign and has issued five reds.


The Leicestershire-born is yet to officiate a Yeovil fixture this season but was the man in the middle for the Glovers’ 1-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge last year.


Mr Kettle will be assisted by Dean Treleaven (West Sussex) and Kevin Howick (Oxfordshire) with Louis Marks (Hampshire) acting as fourth official.

Darren Way and Shayon Harrison’s pre-match interviews can be found on the club’s official YouTube channel.

REPORT: YEOVIL TOWN 0-2 CARLISLE UNITED

1 April 2017

Yeovil Town couldn’t stop Carlisle United getting their play-off hunt back on track, going down 2-0 at Huish Park in Sky Bet League Two.

In an uneventful first period the visitors took the lead with the only noteworthy chance of the half, as John O’Sullivan slipped his marker to head home. 

Less than 10 minutes after the restart Town were reduced to 10 when Ben Whitfield received a straight red card, with Reggie Lambe adding United’s second just a minute later.

Francois Zoko and Brandon Goodship came close to reducing the arrears, but United held firm to see out an important win in their search of a top seven finish.

Darren Way was forced into one change from the side that drew 3-3 at Exeter City last time out, with Tom Eaves coming in for Matty Dolan who picked up a training ground injury in midweek. 

The change saw Town stick with 4-4-2 as Zoko partnered Eaves upfront, moving Shayon Harrison to the right of midfield with a license to roam further forward. 

In a largely humdrum opening quarter of an hour it was Town who possessed the greater attacking intent, as Kevin Dawson saw a shot from range fly wide and Liam Shephard headed into the arms of a thankful Mark Gillespie. 

Despite signs of early encouragement, the Glovers fell behind on 16 minutes from a quickly taken United free-kick midway inside the Yeovil half. 

Catching the hosts out, Reggie Lambe’s whipped-in delivery found O’Sullivan who looped a header over Artur Krysiak to net the Cumbrians first goal in eight games.

The early goal did little to heighten the intensity at Huish Park, as the fixture became increasingly scrappy and lacking in tempo. 

In fact, the opener proved to be it in terms of goal scoring opportunities until the stroke of half-time, when Whitfield’s delivery was glanced inches wide by Eaves. 

As it was, Town trudged into the break a goal down, contained by a disciplined Carlisle outfit with chances at a premium. 

With frustration all around Huish Park, that feeling was only heightened on 54 minutes when Whitfield was shown a straight red for an adjudged elbow on Tom Miller when up for an aerial challenge. 

Keith Curle’s side made immediate use of their man advantage, as Lambe was on hand to fire in off the post after Krysiak saved his initial powerful drive from the angle. 

Now chasing the game, Way switched to 3-4-2 introducing Tom James – for his league debut – and Goodship in place of Harrison and Eaves. 

With just over 60 minutes on the clock the substitutes combined immediately to almost reduce the deficit, as James’ delicate ball into the box was headed just over by Goodship.

The introductions certainly added more zip to Town’s play, and after good work from Goodship on the right, Zoko brought the ball down cleverly on the edge of the box before sending a half-volley whistling past Gillespie’s post. 

Looking to secure their first three points in eight games the Cumbrians battened down the hatches in the closing stages to avoid a nervy ending, a mission achieved as Town couldn’t be involved in a late comeback for a second week in succession.
