24 August 2018

The Glovers will be at Huish Park for the second time this week as they host Stevenage on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

The green and whites were held to a 0-0 draw by Oldham Athletic on Tuesday, with Omar Sowumni and Diallang Jaiyesimi coming the closest to securing a win.

That draw means that the Glovers remain unbeaten since the opening day of the season in Sky Bet League Two, where they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Bury with nine men.

Sessi D’Almeida will be fit for the visit of Boro despite limping off injured in the closing moments of Tuesday's fixture, but Town will still be without a host of absentees.

Stuart Nelson (calf), James Bailey (knee), Rhys Browne (hamstring), Reece Cole (knee), Shaun Donnellan (thigh) and Francois Zoko (knee) will all sit out the clash.

For Boro, they'll make the trip to Somerset boasting an unbeaten league record since the start of the season.

On Tuesday they were held to a 0-0 draw at Forest Green Rovers who are also unbeaten in the league this campaign.

With Town sitting on five points a win would place them above Stevenage who currently lie in fourth place on eight points. 

Head-to-head
Saturday afternoon’s fixture will be the 11th time these two sides have faced off in the league.

Both sides have won three times with the points being shared on a further five occasions.

Stevenage’s last visit to Somerset proved to be a dramatic one as Yeovil ran out 3-0 winners with goals from Olufela Olomola and a brace from Sam Surridge, in a game which also saw three red cards. 

The most memorable tie for Town fans will be the 2-0 FA Trophy final win in 2002 which secured the club's first major piece of silverware.

Officials
The man in the middle on Saturday afternoon will be Tom Nield.

Last taking charge of a Town match last March, he oversaw the 1-0 win at Colchester United in snowy conditions issuing just the one yellow card. 

Mr Nield will be assisted by Ravel Cheosiaua and Marvyn Amphlett with Steven Plane acting as fourth official.

Coverage
The pre-match thoughts of Jake Gray and manager Darren Way can be viewed on iFollow Glovers.

On matchday, minute-by-minute updates will be provided on YTFC's official Twitter account and live matchday centre.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-0 Stevenage

Blistering Glovers end Boro's unbeaten start to 2018/19

25 August 2018

The team celebrate Fisher's goal PPAUK

The Glovers continued their impressive start to the campaign by seeing off thepreviously unbeaten Stevenage 2-0 at Huish Park.

In an opening 45 minutes dominated by a pulsating Town side the hosts had to wait until the 24th minute to break the deadlock. 

Alex Fisher grabbed his fourth of the season to continue his electric form before Sessi D'Almeida opened his account in green and white three minutes before the break to put Yeovil in a commanding position.

Never looking like throwing away their advantage, the Glovers kept Stevenage at bay to pick up another three points.

Coming into the clash unbeaten since the opening day of the season, Darren Way named an unchanged side for a third match in succession. 

With D'Almeida passed fit to play after limping off in midweek, the green and whites were still unable to call upon Stuart Nelson (calf), Shaun Donnellan (thigh), James Bailey (knee), Rhys Browne (hamstring) and Francois Zoko (knee). 

Although enjoying a monopoly on possession from the off, clear-cut chances were hard to come by in the opening exchanges with Wes McDonald and Omar Sowumni going close before the lively McDonald registered the games first shot on target 12 minutes in.

In a half full of positives, Town were dealt a blow early on, however, when Tom James was forced to leave the field through injury, being replaced by Uganda international Bevis Mugabi.

Not altering the pattern of the match, Town remained on top and Fisher soon added to his tally after incredible work from Alex Pattison.

The midfielder broke past the Boro line and steamed into the box before cleverly laying the ball off to Fisher who gave Paul Farman no chance with a composed finished. 

Although a goal to the good, the Glovers were dealt a second injury blow when the virtually unplayable McDonald was forced off to the visitors' relief, to be replaced by Jordan Green. 

Despite losing a second man to injury the hosts continued to dominate and deservedly doubled their lead three minutes before half-time.

Good work on the right from substitute Green lead to the diminutive winger pulling the ball back for D'Almeida who lashed in a left-footed strike which almost broke the net in the process.

In a second half where chances were at a premium, the Glovers comfortably maintained their two-goal lead.

The visitors - clearly given stern words by manager Dino Maamria at the break - came out in determined manner after the restart but couldn't force Nathan Baxter into more than a couple of routine saves.

With time ticking by and not wanting to surrender their unbeaten start to the campaign, the visitors looked to get back into the game and almost did through half-time substitute Alex Reid.

A corner for Boro fell to Reid on the edge of the box but his drive at goal was blocked by Nathan Baxter before the young stopper gathered to ease to danger. 

Stevenage's best chances were coming from set pieces and centre-back Scott Cuthbert rose highest to meet Joel Byrom’s corner but couldn’t manage to guide his header below Baxter’s crossbar. 

After another relentless midfield performance, goal scorer D'Almeida was replaced by Jake Gray with a little under 20 minutes remaining, leaving the field to a standing ovation. 

Comfortably holding Boro at arm's length, any chance of a dramatic comeback from the visitors was ruled out with three minutes left to play when Michael Timlin received his second yellow and subsequent marching orders.

Gray almost grabbed his first of the season as Farman kept it to 2-0 before Baxter ensured a third straight cleansheet by getting down well to Danny Newton's low drive. 

Moving undefeated since the opening day of the season, Town picked up their first win at Huish Park to send the Glovers faithful home happy.
