PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Plymouth Argyle

Can the Glovers progress to the second round?

27 November 2017

Town can progress to the second round of the Checkatrade Trophy in first or second place.

A win or a draw against Plymouth Argyle, regardless of the added point up for grabs via a penalty shootout, would be enough for the Glovers to progress as Group D winners.

If that were to happen, it would mean a knockout tie against AFC Wimbledon at Huish Park.

Providing Chelsea Under-21s lose at Exeter City, a Plymouth victory would mean Yeovil would finish in second and a trip to MK Dons would lie in wait.

Last season, Darren Way’s side defeated the Dons on their way to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Winger Rhys Browne will serve a one-match ban, but Sid Nelson is available due to his suspension only covering Sky Bet League Two and Emirates FA Cup matches.

Bevis Mugabi could also return following his spell on the sidelines after seeing red at Carlisle United.

In the Checkatrade Trophy this term,Plymouth opened with a 2-2 draw and win on penalties against Chelsea and followed it over with shootout victory over arch rivals Exeter City.

It’s a competition Argyle have never won in any format, however it’s success they may pass on if they want to maintain their League One status.

On the weekend, Derek Adams’ team lost 1-0 at Portsmouth courtesy of a howler from Norwich City loanee Remi Matthews, allowing Kal Naismith an easy goal.

Graham Carey is the Devon outfit’s main man; his set pieces will be a threat as well as his trickery across the attacking line.

Yeovil came out on top in the last encounter between the two sides.

Defenders Nathan Smith and Alex Lacey both netted just past the hour back in January, with Jakub Sokolik scoring a consolation.

Since 2004, the Glovers have only won two other games against Plymouth – a League Cup tie in 2004 and a League One victory six years ago.

Argyle secured three points in two of the other four meetings (D2).

Brett Huxtable will be the man in the middle on Tuesday - it will be the Devon-based referee’s 20th game of the campaign.

He has issued 63 yellow cards and one red so far, refereeing four Checkatrade Trophy games to date.

Mr Huxtable officiated two Yeovil games last term – the 2-1 home win over Colchester United and the Valentine’s Day draw against Cambridge United.

He will be supported by Kevin Morris (Herefordshire) and Christopher Husband (Worcestershire) with Simon Knapp (Bristol) acting as fourth official.

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. 

A full match report will follow on at full time with post-match reaction from the manager and a member of the playing staff following soon after. 

Tickets for the match are available on the day at Huish Park from the ticket office.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-1 Plymouth Argyle

Glovers progress as Group D winners

28 November 2017

Tom James is mobbed after scoring PPAUL

Yeovil Town secured top spot in Group D after a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Ryan Taylor, on his first outing since August, had swept the Pilgrims ahead on 16 minutes before Tom James rose above Yann Songo’o to equalise in the second half.

Fellow home substitute Sam Surridge volleyed in a brilliant winner late on to set up a second round encounter with AFC Wimbledon at Huish Park.  

Swansea City loanee Keston Davies was granted his first start since the opening day of the League Two season as manager Darren Way made five alterations to the side that lost at Wycombe Wanderers.

Bevis Mugabi, fresh from his three-match suspension, began at right-back, while Jake Gray, Alefe Santos and Connor Smith took up places in midfield.

In an uneventful beginning to the contest, Town pressed well and looked to zip the ball round with purpose; Argyle, however, were more direct with Omar Sowunmi and Davies winning the majority of aerial battles against experienced forward Taylor. 

The ex-Bristol City man would get the better of the hosts’ backline just past the quarter of an hour mark with the game’s first shot and goal.

Aaron Taylor-Sinclair bombed down the left and across the byeline before cutting back to Taylor whose effort squirmed through the grasp of Artur Krysiak and into the back of the net.

Despite going behind, Yeovil’s intention to keep the ball on the deck remained but it was a lofted cross from Ryan Dickson that almost produced a clearcut chance for the green and whites. 

Santos, at the base of a three-man middle, sprayed a delightful pass to the onrushing left-back who delivered towards the space Gray was surging into, but good defending from Sonny Bradley denied the 21-year-old an opportunity on goal.

As well as their objective to advance in numbers, it left spaces for Plymouth to counter in and bar the outstretched leg of Sowunmi to thwart Alex Fletcher’s close range attempt, it would have been 2-0 to the visitors.

Soon after, Jordan Green showcased his electric pace to steam past Gary Miller and his cutback was met by the swinging left foot of Olufela Olomola, though goalkeeper Mannion – the Pilgrims second emergency loan signing and sixth stopper of the campaign – was equal to it with a smart claim.

Town reverted to a 4-4-2 formation at the break, making two half-time substitutions. One of which was Otis Khan.

The winger went close with a curling effort before slaloming his way down the right and setting up Davies to strike, and he was rebuffed by a decent block.

Francois Zoko should have equalised prior to the hour. Santos showed good vision to pick out the Ivorian’s run in behind and when he lifted the ball over Mannion, he turned to celebrate but saw his cheeky lob drift marginally wide.

Two minutes later, Yeovil were deservedly level and it was the two changes that made it so.

Khan’s wicked set piece from the left was glanced home by James at the near post – the Welshman’s first ever professional goal.

Glovers front two Zoko and Olomola both had penalty appeals turned with the former lashing over in vain and Khan’s free kick hitting the side netting in a quiet final 30 minutes.

However, Town did have one more moment in front of goal which Surridge dispatched with aplomb.

The AFC Bournemouth youngster kept his eye on the ball to stroke home Olomola’s pinpoint delivery and complete an impressive turnaround.

Yeovil Town: Krysiak, Mugabi (James 46), Sowunmi, Davies, Dickson, Gray (Khan 46), Santos, C.Smith, Green, Olomola, Zoko (Surridge 83).
Not used:
Maddison, Nelson, N.Smith, Bailey.

Plymouth Argyle: Mannion, Miller (Wylde 80), Edwards, Songo’o, Bradley, Taylor-Sinclair, Sarcevic, Carey, Threlkeld, Taylor (Ainsworth 72), Fletcher (Jervis 62).
Bradley 48.
Not used:
Childs, Grant, Sokolik, Diagouraga.
