PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Notts County

Table toppers head to Huish Park

20 November 2017

Rhys Browne celebrates after scoring PPAUK

Town will be looking to return to winning ways when league leaders Notts County head to Huish Park on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The Glovers suffered just their second home defeat of the season at the weekend, with two second half Swindon Town strikes cancelling out Rhys Browne's opener. 

Defeat against the Robins ended a run of four games without a loss at home, although Darren Way's side have received a boost ahead of taking on the Magpies. 

Having served their three-match suspensions, top scorer Olufela Olomola and fellow striker Francois Zoko will both be eligible to play. 

The duo have 12 goals between them and will be pushing for an immediate return to action having left Town with just one recognised forward in Sam Surridge. 

Defender Bevis Mugabi, just one game into a three-game ban, will once again sit on the sideline and he could be joined by Ryan Dickson who has missed the last two fixtures after suffering from concussion. 

Whoever makes the 18-man matchday squad will face a stern test against the side setting the pace in Sky Bet League Two.

Kevin Nolan's side sit two points clear at the top and are fresh from a 3-1 victory over Cheltenham at Meadow Lane on Saturday. 

After suffering just their third league loss of the campaign at Crewe Alexandra midway through October, the Magpies have remained unbeaten in their following four league matches. 

Jorge Grant, the league's top scorer with 11 goals, will come into the fixture buoyed by netting twice at the weekend. 

The midfielder will be backed up on the scoring charts by the experienced duo of Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi who both lead the line against the Robins.

Head-to-head
Tuesday's encounter will be the 15th league meeting between the two sides.

To date, the Glovers have won seven, drawn three and lost four against the Magpies. 

The Green and Whites will be looking to make it four games unbeaten against County, with Kevin Dawson and Otis Khan on target on the opening day of last season in a 2-0 win. 

Town are also unbeaten in their last 6 meetings at Huish Park, a run dating back to 2005.

Officials
Dean Whitestone (Northamptonshire) will be the man in the middle on Tuesday night. 

The fixture will mark the second Town game Mr Whitestone has taken charge of, having officiated the 0-0 draw with Cheltenham at Huish Park back in September. 

Overall, the Northamptonshire has refereed 19 matches, issuing 48 yellow and two red cards.

Mr Whitestone will be supported by Ron Ganfield (Somerset) and Ben Cobb (Dorset) with Samuel Ogles (Hampshire) acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 1-1 Notts County

Late penalty earns Glovers a home point

21 November 2017

Matt Worthington on the ball v Notts County PPAUK

Francois Zoko scored a late penalty to earn Town a point against Sky Bet League Two leaders Notts County at Huish Park.

Substitute Jonathan Forte put the Magpies ahead with low shot and Zoko equalised from the spot after being bundled over by Richard Duffy in the 79th minute.

As the Glovers aimed for three points, Millwall loanee Sid Nelson was dismissed for an alleged elbow which led to a more regimented approach in the closing stages to secure the draw.

Olufela Olomola and Zoko made a welcomed return from their bans to start in the same four-man attack which dismantled Stevenage just over three weeks ago.

Saturday’s goalscorer Rhys Browne and Jake Gray dropped to bench with Darren Way only able to name four others alongside them due to the absent quartet of Ryan Dickson (concussion), Paulius Golubickas (Under-18s commitments), Bevis Mugabi (suspension) and Alefe Santos (illness).

County boasted over 760 more career appearances than Town in their starting XI but it was Olomola’s youthfulness that tested veteran Carl Dickinson on the right flank in the opening exchanges.

The 20-year-old then went close with the game’s first clearcut chance on 10 minutes, flicking over Otis Khan’s near-post corner on the half-turn.

A wild 30-yard strike from Matt Worthington followed before Ryan Yates stung the palms of Artur Krysiak with a sweet drive, with Duffy lashing over the rebound.

Magpies defender Shaun Brisley nodded over and experienced frontman Jon Stead sent his own header into Krysiak’s arms in an extremely uneventful first half hour.

It was to be ex-Bristol City forward Stead’s last contribution as he left the field injured for Forte shortly after Tom James sliced a long range effort wide for Yeovil.

Barbados international Forte was only on the field for six minutes before putting Notts ahead. The former Sheffield United man collected Brisley’s knockdown and fired low into the corner.

Town almost restored parity on the half-time whistle but Olomola could hit into the away terrace from 20 yards. 

The visitors went in search of a second immediately following the restart and Rob Milsom was whiskers away from grabbing it, flashing a vicious shot across the face of goal. Then Grant teased Yeovil’s defence, nutmegging Nathan Smith before curling marginally wide.

It led to Browne being introduced and he nearly made an immediate impact, scampering away from several blue shirts to get into a shooting position but unfortunately losing his footing at the vital moment. 

Chances came few and far between for the next 20 minutes until referee Dean Whitestone pointed to the spot.

Browne slipped Zoko in and after he was tripped by Duffy, the Ivorian made no mistake in dispatching from 12 yards against his former employer, sending goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons the wrong way.

The ascendency remained with the Green and Whites as the Thatchers Terrace roared their team on, but the hosts had to be wary of County’s swift counter-attack and were let off when Jorge Grant lifted the ball over the bar inside the box. 

There was late drama in Somerset, though of a goalscoring nature. Nelson was shown a straight red card for an altercation in a crowd of players, however it didn’t have an effect on the final score.

Yeovil Town: Krysiak, James, Nelson, Sowunmi, N.Smith, Worthington, Bailey (C.Smith 75), Khan (Green 76), Olomola, Surridge (Browne 53), Zoko.
