PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Bristol City

Glovers host the Robins in their second pre-season friend

14 July 2017

Town fans will have the chance to watch all the club’s new signings in home action when Bristol City visit Huish Park this weekend (3pm).

Five of Darren Way’s summer additions started in the Glovers’ 2-1 win over local rivals Weymouth in midweek, while Southampton loanee Olufela Olomola looked bright off the bench.

It was two familiar faces who were on hand to earn Yeovil victory in Dorset, with Otis Khan cancelling out Brandon Goodship’s opener before Bevis Muagbi’s stooping header turned things around after the break.

Saturday’s opponents Bristol City are three games ahead in terms of preparation for the 2017/18 campaign.

The Robins opened their pre-season account with a narrow win in Guernsey before dismantling Bristol Manor Farm 11-0 in the club’s annual community match.

Lee Johnson's team notched a third win in succession against Bath City while a youthful side went down 2-0 at Torquay United. 

There will be no Lee Tomlin for City this weekend after he completed a move to Cardiff City, but club record signing Famara Diedhiou will make his debut.

The Senegal international sealed a £5.3m move to Ashton Gate from Angers SCO in June, a day after the BS3 outfit brought in their only other new recruit to date - Italian right-back Eros Pisano.

Before the game, Huish Park plays host to a Family Football Festival with music and refreshments available from 12noon.

In mid-morning, local Under-11 teams are taking part in a tournament on the top pitch while Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust will hold a tournament on the 3G from 1pm, with the respective finals played on the hallowed first-team turf.

The Junior Glovers Family Cabin will be open allowing young supporters to enjoy a host of activities including Fifa 17, and after the game fans can head down the tunnel and enjoy a one-off tour of the dressing rooms and first-team facilities, where the manager and the squad will be waiting. 

Parking is available on site for £2 with tickets for the match costing £8 (adults) and £4 (concessions). Programmes will be available priced at £1.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 1-3 Bristol City

The Glovers lose out in first home pre-season friendly.

15 July 2017

Three goals in five first-half minutes from a strong Bristol City side inflicted Town’s first defeat of pre-season at Huish Park.

A Bobby Reid brace sandwiched Hordur Magnusson’s header to earn the second tier side victory in Somerset.

Olufela Olomola replied for Town in the second period with a beautiful left-footed shot from 25 yards but it proved to be a consolation.

Darren Way made one change to his starting line-up with Swansea City loanee Keston Davies, who signed on a season-long loan on Friday, replacing the injured Stephane Zubar in the heart of the Glovers’ defence.

The 20-year-old had the City’s record signing Famara Diedhiou to contend with and he kept the Senegal international quiet in the opening exchanges as the visitors struggled to breakdown Town’s stubborn backline.

Yeovil had the game’s first chances through Connor Smith’s long range effort and an Otis Khan free kick but City showed their Sky Bet Championship quality with three goals in quick succession.

Iceland international Magnusson's spiralling long throw found the head of defensive partner Aden Flint who flicked on for Reid to tuck the ball away from close range.

Flint was in the midst of the action moments later, heading Jamie Paterson’s deep set-piece into the area and Magnusson rose above goalkeeper Jonny Maddison to nod into an unguarded net.

Two became three on 28 minutes through Bristol-born Reid who stroked home Republic of Ireland winger Callum O’Dowda’s pullback for his second of the match.

Former Oxford United man O’Dowda almost made it four before half-time but his curling shot, after a sweeping Robins counter-attack, whistled past the far post.

Southampton loanee Olomola was introduced at the break as Yeovil switched to a 4-4-2 formation and the young forward caused havoc amongst the Bristol City ranks from the off, breaking away from their back four before Joe Bryan recovered to make a last-ditch challenge.

Town fought hard for a way back into the contest and almost got what they merited. When Frank Fielding spilled a cross from the right, Khan picked up the loose ball, nudged it to his right but could only find the feet of the away stopper.

Wide man Browne’s venomous drive tested Fielding’s reactions once more before Maddison needed to be at his best to prevent Reid from sealing his hat-trick.

Then Olomola reduced the deficit with 14 minutes remaining. The 19-year-old picked up the ball some way from the goal before smashing a sublime effort past the helpless dive of Fielding to make the final score more respectable.

Yeovil Town: Maddison (Trialist 70), Mugabi (Trialist 70), N.Smith (Sowunmi 70), Davies (Trialist 70), Dickson (Trialist 70), Bailey (Trialist 70), Gray (Trialist 70), C.Smith (Olomola 46), Browne (Trialist 70), Khan (Trialist 70), Zoko. 

Bristol City: Fielding, Pisano (Golbourne 66), Flint, Magnusson (Moore 57), Bryan (Pack 66), O’Dowda (Morton 85), Brownhill, K.Smith (J.Smith 85), Paterson (De Girolamo 78), Reid (Edwards 78), Diedhiou (Hinds 57).
