PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wycombe Wanderers

Glovers down to last three home games

13 April 2018

Jordan Green takes on his man PPAUK

With three home fixtures of the 2017/18 campaign remaining, Town host Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday (3pm).

Just 270 minutes of Sky Bet League Two action remains to be seen in Somerset, with the Glovers looking to continue their solid conclusion to the season. 

Having faced sides chasing promotion for five consecutive matches, Darren Way's side have amassed a respectable points haul of eight losing just once.

Lewis Wing and Alex Fisher were on target in midweek as the Green & Whites held play-off chasing Swindon to a 2-2 draw at the County Ground. 

Now preparing to take on the Chairboys, Yeovil will be boosted by the return of Ryan Dickson from a one-match suspension. Sam Surridge, who missed the trip to Wiltshire with a hamstring injury, could also be in line to return. 

However, Town will still be without the services of Francois Zoko (suspended), Nathan Smith, Artur Krysiak, Dan Alfei, James Bailey (all knee) and Jake Gray (ankle). 

For the visitors, they'll be in action for the first time in a fortnight after their meeting with Lincoln City last week was postponed due to the Imps' involvement in the Checkatrade Trophy final. 

Perfectly rested, Gareth Ainsworth will be looking for top scorer Adebayo Akinfenwa (18 goals) to provide his side's main threat, manfully backed up by veteran Craig Mackail-Smith (10 goals).

Head-to-head
The Glovers suffered their first ever EFL defeat at Adams Park in the reverse fixture. 

Francois Zoko's strike wasn't enough to avoid a narrow 2-1 defeat in November, but Town will be looking for a repeat of the 4-0 win at Huish Park in 2009 when Kieran Murtagh, Jean-Paul Kalala, Jon Obika and Sam Williams secured all three points. 

Since entering the EFL, Yeovil have won seven and lost just two of the 12 meetings.

Officials
Scott Oldham will be the man in charge on Saturday.

It'll be the Lancashire official's second match of the season involving Yeovil, having overseen the 1-1 Emirates FA Cup draw at Port Vale in December. 

Mr Oldham will be assisted by Robert Dabbs (Dorset) and Christopher Kidd (Oxfordshire) with Matt Eva (Surrey) acting as fourth official.

Coverage

REPORT | Yeovil Town 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Town suffer narrow defeat despite strong performance

14 April 2018

Otis Khan shoots PPAUK

A sucker punch from Wycombe Wanderers saw Town suffer defeat at Huish Park in Sky Bet League Two.

In a first half in which the Glovers did well to pinback their promotion-chasing opponents, Otis Khan went closest to opening the scoring when his free-kick came back off the bar just before the break. 

Looking the most likely to open the scoring Town thought they had when Alex Fisher poked in from close range just minutes after the restart, only for the linesman's flag to rule it out for offside. 

Going close yet again, Tom James saw a free-kick from 25 yards clip the post before Randell Williams won it for the Chairboys with their only shot on target as the game ticked towards the final 10 minutes.

Reverting back to 4-4-2 from the start after a change in shape at Swindon in midweek, Darren Way made three changes for the visit of Wanderers. 

Ruled out for the remainder of the season, Stuart Nelson was replaced by Jonny Maddison between the sticks allowing goalkeeper coach Steve Phillips a spot on the bench. 

In defence, Ryan Dickson returned from suspension for Bevis Mugabi whilst Jordan Green regained a starting spot at the expense of Alefe Santos who started amongst the substitutes.

Partnering the in-form Fisher upfront, Green was in the thick of it from the off receiving lengthy treatment after a coming together with Adam El-Abd before colliding with visiting stopper Scott Brown as the pacey 23-year-old looked to make an impact.

Although both sides displayed plenty of attacking intent, goal scoring opportunities remained elusive as a flurry of corners and balls into the final third couldn't be turned into chances.

However, that changed five minutes before the break when the hosts almost stormed into a two-goal lead.

Captain Omar Sowunmi headed just wide from Lewis Wing's hanging ball into the box before Khan was only denied by the fingertips of Scott Brown who did well to tip the winger's wide free-kick onto the underside of the woodwork.

Finishing the opening 45 minutes strongly, Way's side looked on course to continue their good run of form against the division's top six and almost started the second half in perfect fashion. 

Green showed his pace to create half a yard to steer in a low cross for Fisher to tap in, only for the offside ruling to cancel out what would've been the opener. 

Remaining on the front foot, Rhys Browne became a thorn in the side of opposite number Joe Jacobson as he twice threatened to get shots off on goal, before the Chairboys registered their first meaningful attempt on goal after 63 minutes. 

Nick Freeman found a pocket of space 25 yards out but could only power a low drive just wide of Maddison's goal as Gareth Ainsworth's side struggled to get going. 

Having gathered momentum in the second half, the Glovers struck the woodwork for a second time with a little under 15 minutes remaining. 

Tom James' free-kick from all of 25 yards had Brown beaten but to the visiting keeper's joy it clipped the post and landed wide. 

With all signs pointing towards a Yeovil winner, Wycombe stunned the hosts by taking the lead with their first shot on target with 79 minutes on the clock. 

Jacobson's wide free-kick was recycled by Wanderers, allowing Marcus Bean to tee up Williams whose side-footed strike from just inside the box nestled in the corner of the net.

Keen to salvage the point they at the very least deserved Way introduced Ryan Seager and Santos from the bench as caution was thrown to the wind, but Town couldn't find a second late equaliser of the week and suffered just their second defeat in six. 

Yeovil Town: Maddison; James, Sowunmi, Donnellan, Dickson; Browne (Barnes 67'), Wing, Gobern (Santos 85'), Khan; Green (Seager 83'), Fisher.
Bookings:
Subs not used: Phillips, Mugabi, Whelan, Bird.

Wycombe Wanderers: Brown; Harriman, El-Abd, McGinley, Jacobson; Bean, O'Nien (Williams 32'), Gape; Kashket (Mackail-Smith 59'), Akinfenwa, Freeman (Tyson 76').
Bookings: Bean 74', El-Abd 75'
Subs not used: Ma-Kalambay, Bloomfield, Saunders, Cowan-Hall.
