PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Luton Town

Clash of the Town's at Huish Park

6 April 2018

Team huddle at Coventry PPAUK

Darren Way's side will look to continue their recent run of form when high-flying Luton Town visit on Saturday (3pm).

Town come into the match unbeaten in their last three, fresh from a resounding 6-2 win at Coventry on Easter Monday.

Braces from Alex Fisher, Francois Zoko and Sam Surridge see the strike force come into the weekend full of confidence, with Fisher boasting three goals in his last two outings. 

Taking to the field at Huish Park for the first time since the beginning of March, Way's side will look to build on their seven-point haul from three trips on the road. 

Unchanged in their last two games, the Glovers could once again lineup in familiar fashion with no fresh injury concerns to worry about. 

James Bailey, Dan Alfei, Nathan Smith, Artur Krysiak (all knee) and Jake Gray (ankle) remain the only injured absentees, with Corey Whelan, Connor Smith and Marcus Barnes sitting out the trip to the Ricoh Arena. 

For the visitors, Nathan Jones' side head to Somerset looking to address their patchy form. 

Sitting second in Sky Bet League Two, the Hatters have two wins, two defeats and two draws from their last six matches seeing off Mansfield 2-1 in their last fixture. 

James Collins (20) and Danny Hylton (19) provide the most likely goal threat, backed up by Elliot Lee (nine). 

Head-to-head
Saturday will mark the 10th competitive meeting between the two sides.

To date, Town have just one win to their name with victory coming in August 2015 as Stephen Arthurworrey and Ryan Bird (x2) found the back of the net. 

The Glovers are now looking to take points off the Hatters for the first time in four encounters.

Officials
Brendan Malone (Wiltshire) will take charge of proceedings at Huish Park. 

It'll be Mr Malone's first visit to Somerset since October 2016 where he oversaw the 0-0 draw with Grimbsy.

On Saturday, he'll be assisted by Adrian Tranter (Dorset) and Simon Knapp (Bristol) with Adam Penwell acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 0-3 Luton Town

Glovers reduced to nine as Hatters profit

7 April 2018

Alex Fisher challenges for the ball PPAUK

Nine-man Yeovil suffered their first defeat in four, going down 3-0 at the hands of high-flying Luton Town at Huish Park.

Brimming with confidence after back-to-back wins, the Glovers were dealt a blow after just three minutes when Elliot Lee opened the scoring for the promotion-chasing visitors.  

In an afternoon of frustration, Ryan Dickson received a red card for an adjudged pull on Danny Hylton in the box, with the prolific striker coolly converting the resultant spot kick on the 20-minute mark.

Adding to the dramatic first half, captain Francois Zoko received his marching orders for an off the ball altercation with Alan McCormack, as the Green & Whites suffered a difficult return home.

Making the most of their two-man advantage, Hylton added a third on 40 minutes before the striker was substituted having teetered on the edge of a red card having picked up a yellow for goading the home faithful.

With the second half becoming little more than a formality the hosts battled hard to keep it at 3-0, in a result which ended a good run of form. 

For a third consecutive match, Darren Way named an unchanged starting eleven sticking with the side that's won its last two outings on the road. 

Returning to Somerset after wins over Colchester and Coventry, Corey Whelan, Connor Smith and Marcus Barnes remained the unfortunate three to miss out on a spot in the matchday 18.

After starting in electric fashion in Coventry on Monday, the Glovers were slower out of the blocks in Somerset and fell behind to the first meaningful attack of the game. 

Omar Sowunmi and Shaun Donnellan both got attracted to the same ball, meaning that when Hylton won the flick-on Lee was able to run through unchallenged and curl a strike past a hapless Stuart Nelson. 

Looking to strike whilst the iron was hot, the Hatters continued to remain on the front foot and almost doubled their lead in fortuitous manner with 13 minutes on the clock.

Donnellan's clearance ricocheted off of Sowunmi into the path of E. Lee inside the box, only for Nelson to keep out the attacking midfielder's close-range effort. 

In a difficult opening 20 minutes for the hosts, Way's side were reduced to 10 men and fell two goals behind in a matter of moments. 

Ryan Dickson was dismissed for pulling Hylton as he looked to latch onto a rebound, allowing the pantomime villain to slam home the spot kick from 12 yards.

Becoming an ill-tempered affair, the home supporters' frustrations were increased just past the half hour-mark when the talismanic Zoko was dismissed for a coming together with McCormack off the ball. 

With a monopoly on possession due to their numerical advantage, Luton added a third before the break when Hylton tapped in from close range, before the visitors' top scorer was hauled off by Nathan Jones with a red card seemingly imminent. 

Becoming a pedestrian affair after the break, Luton were happy to play without urgency whilst Town struggled for territory or possession in their forced 4-3-1 formation. 

McCormack had a drive comfortably saved by Nelson and Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu blazed just over, as the hour-mark came and went in understated fashion.

Battling hard to keep the deficit at three against the league's highest scoring side, Lewis Wing whipped a free-kick over the bar before having a deflected strike from inside the box well saved by James Shea as the final 10 minutes approached.

Sensing a change in tempo the Hatters ensured the closing stages became little more than a formality by stroking the ball about without urgency or intent, condemning the Green & Whites to a first defeat in four. 

Yeovil Town: Nelson; James, Sowunmi, Donnellan, Dickson; Green (Gobern 71'), Wing, Bird, Browne (Mugabi 21'); Zoko, Fisher (Surridge 55'). 
Bookings: Dickson 19' (red card), Zoko 32' (red card)
Subs not used: Maddison, Santos, Khan, Barnes.

Luton Town: Shea; Stacey, Rea, Sheehan, Potts; McCormack (Downes 77'), O. Lee, Mpanzu, E.Lee (Gambin 89'); Hylton (Jervis 44'), Collins.
Bookings: Hylton 40', Stacey 70', McCormack 75'
Subs not used: Stech, Justin, Cornick, Mullins.
