PREVIEW | Crewe Alexandra v Yeovil Town

Town on the road for just a second time in 2018

9 February 2018

Looking for a third straight league win, the Glovers head to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday (3pm).

Following a run of five consecutive home matches, Town head to Cheshire for just a second away trip of 2018 looking to continue their run of good form. 

In their last two league outings both Grimsby and Cambridge United departed Somerset empty-handed, before Darren Way's side booked a spot in the Checkatrade Trophy semi-final in midweek by seeing off higher league opposition in the form of Fleetwood Town. 

Looking to win three league games on the bounce for the first time since October 2016, the Green & Whites head to Gresty Road with a strong squad to pick from. 

Ineligible on Tuesday night, Lewis Wing and Ryan Seager come back into contention, whilst Oscar Gobern returned to the matchday squad for the clash against the Cod Army following a spell on the sideline with a hamstring injury. 

Only the trio of Dan Alfei (knee), James Bailey (knee) and Bevis Mugabi (hamstring) will miss the meeting with the Railwaymen, leaving the Town boss with something of a selection headache. 

The same headache will be faced by opposing manager David Artell, who'll be searching to find the eleven capable of stopping a run of four straight defeats. 

Without a league win since New Year's Day, the Railwaymen sit three places and five points below the Glovers ahead of the weekend's action.

Head-to-head
Town have won their last three matches against The Alex. 

Olufela Olomola and Rhys Browne were on target in a 2-0 win at Huish Park back in October, whilst a Matty Dolan free-kick won the away visit to Crewe last season. 

Having won eight of the 13 competitive encounters, the Glovers are bidding to record the double over Crewe for the second consecutive campaign.

Officials
The referee on Saturday will be Robert Lewis (Shropshire).

It will be the second time this season that Mr Lewis has taken charge of a game involving Yeovil, having officiated the 1-0 loss at Wolves in the Carabao Cup back in August. 

He will be assisted by Richard Wild (Lancashire) and David Benton (South Yorkshire) with Chris Isherwood (Lancashire) acting as fourth official. 

Coverage
The pre-match thoughts of Ryan Seager and manager Darren Way can be viewed on iFollow Glovers.

On matchday, minute-by-minute updates will be provided on YTFC's official Twitter account and live matchday centre.

If you’re unable to attend the game, live audio commentary is available via the iFollow Glovers service, with the monthly and season subscriptions offering full-match replays from Sunday.

REPORT | Crewe Alexandra 0-0 Yeovil Town

Town move four unbeaten with a point on the road

10 February 2018

Yeovil Town extended their unbeaten run with a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Crewe Alexandra.

In a frantic affair in Cheshire, Artur Krysiak made two smart stops in the first half whilst Ryan Seager went close to netting at the other end on two occasions. 

After the break both sides searched for an elusive winner and Sam Surridge had the ball in the net but for an offside flag, but it remained goalless as Town moved four games unbeaten in all competitions.

Darren Way made three changes from the eleven who recorded back-to-back league victories over Grimsby and Cambridge United.

Man of the Match in Town’s Checkatrade Trophy quarter-final win in midweek, Corey Whelan made his first league start for the club, coming in for Ryan Dickson.

In a midfield reshuffle, Rhys Browne replaced Alefe Santos in a switch which saw Jake Gray revert to a more central position to accommodate the winger.

Completing a change in each department, Surridge dropped to the bench as Seager made the starting eleven for the first time since arriving in January against his former employers.

On a boggy Gresty Road pitch, it was something of a midfield tussle in the opening half an hour with chances at a premium. 

Unable to penetrate two resolute defensive units the Glovers had to make do with half-chances, as Seager blazed over from an unlikely angle before Lewis Wing struck a well-hit effort just wide from 25 yards.

Degenerating into a match played largely in the middle of the park, it took until 27 minutes for either 'keeper to be called into action. 

Working possession cleverly down the left, Alexandra worked the ball into Callum Ainley on the left-hand side of the box only for his stabbed strike from the angle to be kept out by Krysiak. 

Becoming an important figure for the visitors the Polish stopper was in action again two minutes later, getting everything behind a fiercely hit Zoumana Bakayogo shot from inside the box. 

Responding at the other end, Seager saw a strike fly inches wide from the edge of the box, before the two defences prevailed once again to keep it goalless at the halfway stage.

Looking for a fourth straight win, Yeovil were dealt two blows in quick succession in Cheshire.

Picking up an injury in the first-half, Nathan Smith was replaced by Dickson at half-time before the ever-present Krysiak had to be withdrawn. 

Brilliantly tipping Harry Pickering's free-kick onto the bar, the Pole picked up a knee injury in the process and with a little under 40 minutes remaining was replaced by Jonny Maddison for a first appearance of the season.

Opening up as an encounter to create more chances, Shaun Miller zipped an effort over the bar whilst Omar Sowunmi couldn't direct Tom James' shot on target. 

Ticking past the hour mark, Francois Zoko sold three Crewe players with a dummy before drilling a shot across the face of goal whilst at the other end Ainley drew a smart save from Maddison.

Defending manfully, the Glovers searched for a winner in the final 20 minutes as Wing blazed a duo of long-range efforts over the bar, whilst substitute Surridge was denied a dramatic winner in the 89th minute by the linesman's flag following a good passing move. 

Unable to find a winner, both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils as the Glovers continued their good run of recent form.

Crewe Alexandra: Garratt; Sterry, Ng, Nolan, Bakayogo; Ainley, Green, Pickering, Kirk (McKirdy 64'); Miller, Bowery.
Bookings:
Subs not used: Richards, Walker, Raynes, Lowery, Reilly, Barlaser.

Yeovil Town: Krysiak (Maddison 51'); Whelan, Sowunmi, N. Smith (Dickson 46'), James; Green, Wing, Gray, Browne; Zoko, Seager (Surridge 68').
Bookings: Whelan 21', Dickson 90'
Subs not used: Bird, Gobern, Santos, Fisher.
