PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Stevenage

Town looking to enjoy home comforts once again

27 October 2017

Rhys Browne is congratulated after opening the scoring PPAUK

The Glovers host Stevenage on Saturday (3pm) looking to make it consecutive home wins in Sky Bet League Two.

Huish Park last saw league action a fortnight ago, when Crewe Alexandra were dispatched 2-0 courtesy of strikes from Rhys Browne and Fela Olomola. 

Since then, Town have played out a loss and a draw in League Two whilst recording a penalty shootout win over Chelsea Under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy in midweek. 

Browne was on target in the game against the Young Blues which finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, meaning the Yeovil winger is targeting a third goal in as many games at home. 

While the 21-year-old enjoys a rich vein of form, fellow winger Jordan Green hasn't featured for a month due to injury and remains touch and go, whilst Ryan Dickson missed Wednesday's match having picked up concussion at Barnet last weekend.

Preparing for the second of three matches in a row at Huish Park, Darren Way's side welcome Darren Sarll's Stevenage who sit just outside the play-offs in ninth.

After being on the end of a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of league leaders Luton Town earlier this month, Boro bounced back with victory against high-flying Accrington Stanley at the Lamex. 

However, defeat to a rejuvenated Forest Green Rovers last time out means the Hertfordshire outfit head to Somerset looking to get back to winning ways once again. 

In order to do that, Stevenage will be hoping top scorer Danny Newton (6) can return to scoring form and net his first goal in six, while Matt Godden is searching for a fourth goal in just three games.

Head-to-head
Yeovil come into the encounter unbeaten in their last six meetings with Stevenage.

Both of last season's meetings finished with a share of spoils, with Ben Whitfield grabbing a last-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw at the Lamex Stadium before Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro notched in a 1-1 draw at Huish Park. 

Four of the last six matches between the two sides have ended in a draw, with Town's last win coming in December 2015 in an FA Cup second round fixture. 

Officials 
Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire) will take charge on Saturday. 

The League Two clash will be Mr. Sarginson's 16th match of the season, having already officiated a fixture involving the Glovers - the 3-2 win over Accrington Stanley back in August. 

He will be assisted by Ravel Cheosiaua and Kevin Morris with Adam Bromley acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 3-0 Stevenage

Glovers defeat Boro at home with nine men

28 October 2017

Sam Surridge celebrates his second goal against Stevenage with Omar Sowunmi PPAUK

Three first-half goals saw Town comfortably defeat Stevenage at Huish Park.

Sam Surridge grabbed a brace for the Glovers either side of Olufela Olomola’s 27th-minute strike, before the latter saw red for his association with an on-field tussle.

Substitute Kevin Toner was also dismissed for his part in the incident, and Francois Zoko was later sent off for a high foot as Darren Way’s side hung on for victory with nine men.

The Yeovil manager made three changes from his last league outing, including fourth Sky Bet League Two starts for AFC Bournemouth loanees Surridge and Matt Worthington.

Versatile Welshman Tom James was utilised at left-back in place of concussed Ryan Dickson.

There was also a first involvement in the matchday squad for Academy goalkeeper Tommy Scott, who was named on the bench after an injury to Jonny Maddison in training.

The hosts lined up in a very attacking shape and Olomola twice stretched the visitors’ defence early on, first seeing his cross narrowly evade fellow forward Zoko before a further move fizzled out. 

Stevenage looked vulnerable at the back but after Dale Gorman’s volley deflected over, they created the first clearcut chance.

Omar Sowunmi’s clearance cannoned off Worthington, fell kindly for Chris Whelpdale who swivelled and hit the foot of the post.

A flurry of offsides followed alongside a wild Tom Pett volley as a lull in the match ensued.

It was sparked back into life by a great finish from Surridge.

After a fierce James Bailey strike appeared to hit Fraser Franks’ hand in the box, the young striker kept his composure to send a side-footed effort into the bottom corner.

Moments later it was two with all four forward players contributing.

Surridge flicked on to Zoko who in turn nudged the ball on to Otis Khan. He raced through and found himself in a two-on-one situation with Olomola, unselfishly squared to the Southampton youngster who tucked away with aplomb.

The Glovers were rampant and passing the ball round superbly, deservedly adding a third of the afternoon before the break.

Khan proved the provider once more, whipping a lovely corner to the back post where Surridge was waiting unmarked to smash home his second of the day.

It was almost a dream first period for the 19-year-old, who got in a great position to receive Zoko’s slide-rule pass only for his heavy touch to deny him his hat-trick opportunity.

Then a long Artur Krysiak punt somehow reached Zoko but he could merely find the legs of keeper Joe Fryer rather than Yeovil’s fourth of the day.

Boro almost reduced the deficit early in the second half and it would have been helping hand from a Green and White shirt.

Whelpdale’s diagonal ball was collected by Dan Newton whose shot from an acute angle was tipped out by Krysiak, inadvertently hit Nathan Smith and just dropped wide of the post.

Former Tamworth man Newton was denied by Town’s number one again prior to the hour mark. He weaved in and out of number of players before being thwarted by the legs of Krysiak.

Similarly to the first half, chances went quiet and then all hell broke loose.

A mass brawl occurred right in front of the touchline and following a five-minute consultation with his officials, referee Chris Sarginson showed red cards to Olomola and substitute Toner for their part in the fracas. 

Back to pitch action and when the storm had calmed, Khan warmed the gloves of Fryer with a curling effort and Tom James’ knuckleball free kick forced the away stopper into a flying save.

Yeovil ended the contest with nine players when Zoko received a red card for a raised foot but it didn’t effect the final result as the home side recorded back-to-back league wins in Somerset.
