PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Crewe Alexandra

Glovers hoping to bounce from previous home outing

13 October 2017

Daniel Alfei’s ACL injury sees Yeovil’s squad decrease to 20 players until at least January.

There are no other injury concerns for Darren Way’s side ahead of the weekend as they look to bounce back from consecutive defeats in Sky Bet League Two.

Prior to their defeat to Colchester United in their last outing at Huish Park, Town were unbeaten in five matches at home.

The Glovers have had five different goalscorers at home this season – all attacking players.

Olufela Olomola (3), Francois Zoko (2), Rhys Browne, Otis Khan and Sam Surridge have all notched in front of the home faithful and will look to add to their totals this weekend against Crewe Alexandra.

The Railwaymen ended their five-match losing streak in the league with a 1-0 win over Stevenage last weekend.

Forward Jordan Bowery, formerly of Aston Villa, was on target and he will battle it out for a position up front with experienced duo Chris Dagnall and Chris Porter.

Crewe have opted for a different goalkeeper in recent weeks with ex-Bristol City and Cardiff City man Dave Richards replacing long-serving Ben Garratt between the sticks.

Head-to-head
Town have won seven matches against Crewe since 2006 (D1 L4).

The Glovers recorded the double over the Cheshire outfit last season, winning 1-0 at Gresty Road before a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture in April.

Nine of the 12 matches between the two sides have seen scores to nil – five in Yeovil’s favour, four in Crewe’s.

Officials
Ben Toner will be the man in the middle this weekend. 

The Lancashire-born official was in charge of Yeovil’s 5-2 Checkatrade Trophy defeat at Luton Town.

This term, Toner has refereed eight matches and has issued 21 yellows and one red.

He will be assisted by Steven Plane (Worcestershire) and Matthew Lee (West Sussex) with Samuel Ogles (Hampshire) acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-0 Crewe Alexandra

Glovers record their third home win of the season against the Railwaymen

14 October 2017

Rhys Browne scores against Crewe Alexandra PPAUK

Goals from Rhys Browne and Olufela Olomola earned Town their third home of the season against Crewe Alexandra.

Browne, given an opportunity from the start for the first time in seven matches, kept his eye on the ball to smash the Glovers into a first-half lead.

Southampton loanee Olomola wrapped up three points in the second period with his sixth goal in Yeovil colours. 

Manager Darren Way made two other changes to the side that suffered a 2-0 defeat at Newport County last weekend.

Omar Sowunmi and Bevis Mugabi slotted into defence, replacing Sid Nelson – who underwent an operation on a broken nose on Thursday - and Tom James.

An entertaining beginning saw both sides go close in the opening 14 minutes.

Crewe’s George Cooper was denied an effort on goal by a superb challenge from Mugabi and Sowunmi threw himself in front of the follow up to set up a Yeovil attack.

It resulted in Francois Zoko’s deflected shot from close range falling kindly for away stopper Dave Richards, who in turn set up another attack for the visitors.

Cooper was again instrumental in the Alex progressing downfield and his slide-rule pass was collected by experienced frontman Chris Porter but his toe poke shaved the outside of the post.

Keeping up with the Chuckle Brothers ‘to me, to you’ theme on the chance front, a free-flowing Town move saw Browne cheekily back heel to Olomola whose right-footed strike flashed past the far post.

Then the first goal of the game came.

Otis Khan’s cross from the left flicked up off the boot of Zoko and sat up nicely for Browne to finish with a sweet volley.

It noticeably gave the Barbuda and Antigua international a lease of confidence, as he fired over shortly after before winning the ball back from ex-Glovers loanee Zoumana Bakayogo and teeing up Zoko who shot low into the gloves of Richards.

Crewe worked hard to find an equaliser prior to the interval and they may have levelled if not for a number of good stops from Artur Krysiak.

The Polish stopper did brilliantly to tip away Eddie Nolan’s attempt from outside the box and foiled Callum Ainley seconds later.

Krysiak made a third save in quick succession, pushing away Jordan Bowery’s glancing header before Cooper dragged a shot wide at the end of a busy half.

Things settled down after the break with neither keeper troubled until Olomola netted a vital second for the Glovers.

The 20-year-old controlled Ryan Dickson’s deep delivery and his shot into the ground clipped an outstretched Crewe leg and looped into the net.

Crewe almost reduced the deficit when Nolan’s powerful header crashed against the crossbar but after that it was a relatively straightforward final half-hour for Town.

Khan had a chance to convert from six yards however slipped at the last, Browne saw his 25-yarder beaten away and Zoko found the back of the Thatchers terrace from a good position.

With five minutes to go, Browne hit low at Richards when he probably should have squared it and substitute Sam Surridge tried to get in on the goals, but was thwarted three times by some good defending and goalkeeping.

All in all, it was a solid display from back to front as the Green and Whites bounced back from consecutive defeats and rose to 17th in the table.

Yeovil Town: Krysiak, Mugabi, Sowunmi, N.Smith, Dickson, Browne, Bailey, C.Smith, Khan (Santos 89), Olomola (Surridge 74), Zoko.
Bookings: Zoko 89.
