PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Oldham Athletic

Glovers look to continue winning ways

20 August 2018

Carl Dickinson celebrates the win at Notts County PPAUK

The Glovers return to Huish Park on Tuesday night (7.45pm) looking to carry on momentum against Oldham Athletic.

Town picked up their first three points of the season at Notts County on Friday with an Alex Fisher hat-trick and Yoann Arquin header seeing the visitors secure a resounding 4-0 win.

The result sees the green and whites move two unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two having picked up a point when Mansfield visited Somerset the week previous. 

Hosting the Latics in the first of back-to-back home matches, Darren Way's side will be keen to build momentum on home soil. 

Nursing no fresh injury concerns from their trip to Nottinghamshire the Glovers will welcome back Jordan Green from a three-match suspension. 

But Town will still be without Stuart Nelson (calf), James Bailey (knee), Rhys Browne (hamstring), Reece Cole (knee), Shaun Donnellan (thigh) and Francois Zoko (knee). 

For Oldham, they head south after also picking up their first win of the season at the weekend. 

Former Glovers Sam Surridge and Ishmael Miller were both on target in a 3-1 win over Macclesfield to net their first goals for the club. 

With the same tally of four-points, both sides will look to climb higher in the table. 

Head-to-head
Tuesday night will be the 19th meeting between the two sides since 2005. 

Town boast eight wins to Oldham's five, with victories in the last two outings. 

Back in 2015 goals from Joel Grant and James Hayter were enough to pick up a 2-1 win at Huish Park.

In fact, the Glovers have lost just one of the nine encounters in Somerset. 

Officials
The man in the middle on Tuesday night will be John Busby.

Mr Busby oversaw one Town game last season, producing three yellow cards in the 2-0 win against Forest Green Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy.

In Somerset, he'll be assisted by Ben Cobb and Paul Lister with Andrew Laver acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 0-0 Oldham Athletic

The Glovers pick up a point to move three unbeaten

21 August 2018

Sessi D'Almeida with the ball PPAUK

Town produced another entertaining performance at Huish Park but were held to a 0-0 draw by Oldham Athletic.

In an opening 45 minutes dominated by the green and whites, Yoann Arquin and Diallang Jaiyesimi both went close to increasing their tally for the season as Town cut a team full of belief. 

Quick out of the blocks after the restart, Dan Gardner struck the post for the visitors before the Glovers reasserted their grip on proceedings.

Omar Sowunmi came within inches of breaking the deadlock but the hosts had to settle for a point despite moving three unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two. 

Not wanting to meddle with a winning team, Darren Way stuck with the 11 that produced the stunning 4-0 win at Notts County on Friday night. 

Still unable to call upon Stuart Nelson (calf), Shaun Donnellan (thigh), James Bailey (knee), Reece Cole (knee), Rhys Browne (hamstring) and Francois Zoko (knee), Town did welcome back Jordan Green from suspension who started amongst the substitutes. 

After making his return off the bench from a six-month ankle injury in Nottinghamshire, Jake Gray featured in the squad at Huish Park to mark a home return to round off the matchday 18.

Oozing with confidence the hosts got off to an encouraging start, enjoying plenty of territory and possession in the opening 20 minutes. 

Stroking the ball around with real purpose the Latics struggled to get out of their own half although Frankie Bunn's side did enough to keep 'keeper Dan Iversen unscathed.

Restricting the Glovers to half-chances and set-plays, a good block from Christopher Missilou denied Diallang Jaiyesimi a shot on goal from inside the box as the home crowd sensed an opener might be coming.

With that feeling still around, the deadlock was almost broken twice in quick succession just past the half-hour mark. 

Firstly, Carl Dickinson's tempting free-kick was glanced goalwards by Yoann Arquin to force a stop from Iversen before Jaiyesimi almost took matters into his own hands. 

The Norwich loanee glided into the box from 25 yards with a show of neat footwork before drilling into the side-netting as Town edged closer.

As half-time approached proceedings became increasingly stop-start, none less so than when Ishmael Miller - already on a yellow - evaded a dismissal after a lengthy chat with referee John Busby following a late foul on Gary Warren.

With the former striker's brush with the officials the last notable action of the half, both sides returned to the dressing rooms with the game at a stalemate. 

Having been second best for much of the opening 45 minutes the Latics came out reinvigorated after the restart and almost stole the lead on 49 minutes. 

Clever footwork from Gardner in the box engineered a yard of space and from the angle the midfielder crashed a strike off the post.

Looking to swing the pendulum of momentum back in favour of the hosts, Alex Pattison produced two strong runs from midfield only for eventual recipients Alex Fisher and Wes McDonald to squander the opportunities. 

With the home faithful loud and proud, Friday's hat-trick hero Fisher tried to turn provider as his cross narrowly evaded strike partner Jaiyesimi in the middle with the Glovers back on the prowl in the final third. 

As the game ticked towards the final 20 minutes, another Dickinson set-piece delivery almost yielded the opener.

Landing a free-kick from the left perfectly onto the head of Omar Sowunmi, Town's captain could only head inches wide of the target with Iversen stranded.

Chasing back-to-back wins, the attack-minded Gray replaced the combative Sessi D'Almeida in the middle of the park for the Glovers with a little over 15 minutes remaining, but despite plenty of huff and puff the green and whites couldn't find a way to further test Iversen in the Latics goal. 

Lacking their goal scoring boots from the trip to Nottinghamshire the Glovers had to settle for a point on the board after another entertaining performance, albeit moving three unbeaten in the league. 

Yeovil Town: Baxter; James, Sowunmi, Warren, Dickinson; Arquin, D'Almeida (Gray 74'), Pattison, McDonald (Green 62'); Jaiyesimi, Fisher.
Bookings:
Subs not used: Phillips, Mugabi, Santos, Rogers, Henry.

Oldham Athletic: Iversen; Hunt, Clarke, Edmundson, Taylor; Branger, Gardner, Missilou, Nepomuceno (Lang 65'); Miller (Baxter 46'), O'Grady. 
Bookings: Miller 11'
Subs not used: De La Paz, Graham, Hamer, Benteke, Maouche.
