PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Plymouth Argyle

Town host Argyle as part of Family Fun Day

20 July 2018

Jordan Green in action PPAUK

The Glovers host their third and final pre-season friendly on Saturday with Plymouth Argyle the visitors as part of the Family Fun Day at Huish Park.

Activities will be taking place throughout the day with a detailed plan here, but the main event will see Town take on higher league opposition for a fourth successive match. 

A narrow defeat to Swansea City was followed by back-to-back 1-1 draws with Bristol City and Bristol Rovers respectively, as Darren Way's side maintained a solid start to pre-season. 

With the 2018/19 campaign ticking ever closer the Pilgrims make the short trip from Devon on Saturday to take on the Green & Whites who'll still be without three first-team players.

Jake Gray and James Bailey continue their rehab from lengthy injuries, whilst loan goalkeeper Nathan Baxter remains with parent club Chelsea due to Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero's extended breaks following the World Cup. 

Academy Youngsters Gabriel Rogers, Tyrique Spencer-Clarke and Daniel Ojo have all been involved in the last two matches, with 16-year-old Declan Rose an unused substitute on Tuesday night.

Returning to Huish Park will be former Glover Joel Grant who's part of Derek Adams' squad after spending two seasons with Yeovil between 2013 and 2015. 

Tickets for the match remain on sale both in advance on the day of the game, with Under-16s able to take it all in for FREE! Adults can watch for just £6 with Senior/Young Person tickets costing £3

Supporters can buy online or via the Huish Park ticket office (01935 847888).

Don't miss the last chance to see the first-team squad in action at home before the 2018/19 campaign gets underway!

REPORT | Yeovil Town 5-1 Plymouth Argyle

Town hit League One Argyle for five

21 July 2018

Diallang Jaiyesimi is congratulated on his goal PPAUK

The Glovers signed off their pre-season preparation at Huish Park with an emphatic 5-1 thumping of League One outfit Plymouth Argyle.

Quick out of the blocks, Diallang Jaiyesimi broke the deadlock early on with his first goal for the club before Rhys Browne added a quickfire second as Town asserted their dominance. 

After a slow start, the Pilgrims grew into the match and reduced the deficit courtesy of Joel Grant before a stunning second of the match from wideman Browne gave the hosts a 3-1 lead at the halfway stage.

Not letting their foot of the gas the Glovers added another two after the restart thanks to substitute Alex Fisher's brace, as higher league opposition were brushed aside in an enjoyable afternoon. 

In action on home soil for the final time before the 2018/19 Sky Bet League Two campaign begins, the Glovers were unable to call on three members of the first-team.

Jake Gray and James Bailey continue their rehab from lengthy injuries, whilst loanee Nathan Baxter remains with parent club Chelsea in the absence of Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero following the World Cup.

A recurrent theme in pre-season, members of the Under-18s were also included with Tyrique Spencer-Clarke and Gabriel Rogers both in the matchday squad.

Following impressive displays against Swansea City, Bristol City and Bristol Rovers, Darren Way's side continued where they left off with an electric start in Somerset that yielded two goals in the opening 11 minutes.

Norwich loanee Jaiyesimi cleverly turned his man 20 yards from goal prior to curling a strike past a hapless Kyle Letheren with just three minutes on the clock. 

The onslaught continued as Francois Zoko went close moments later, but it was soon 2-0 when Browne's rasper from the edge of the box couldn't be equaled by the Pilgrims stopper. 

Having barely ventured out of their own half Argyle came to life after slipping further behind with a flurry of chances themselves. 

Veteran keeper Stuart Nelson demonstrated his agility to get down low to palm away Jamie Ness' driven shot, before brilliantly denying the same man seconds later with a fine reaction save. 

Building up a head of steam, Conor Grant crashed an effort off the post from long range before Derek Adams' side grabbed a goal back. 

Playing out from the back, the Glovers surrendered possession on the edge of their own box which allowed former Town man Grant the luxury of poking an effort under Nelson whilst uncontested.

Plateauing into an even affair the game drifted to the half-hour mark with little notable action until Browne reignited proceedings with a jaw-dropping solo goal.

Controlling on his chest 20 yards out, the Antigua & Barbuda international looped the ball over a Plymouth defender before volleying into the back of the net to send the home crowd into raptures.

With their two-goal lead restored the Green & Whites looked comfortable for the remainder of the half with Ness' strike over the bar the last act of an opening 45 minutes full of positives.

Looking to peg back Town after the restart Graham Carey struck the post from a free-kick on 48 minutes, before the customary substitutions began to flow. 

On at the break, Fisher got in on the scoring act when he was perfectly placed to tap in an inch-perfect cross from Trialist C to register his first goal of pre-season. 

With a commanding lead the hosts were relentless in putting Argyle to the sword and added a fifth on the hour-mark. 

Neat build-up led to Fisher finding himself one-on-one, demonstrating good composure to round substitute keeper Harry Burgoyne and complete the goal scoring rout. 

Ending the match with four trialists on the pitch as well as 17-year-old Rogers and Spencer-Clarke from the Academy, Way's side signed off at Huish Park in style as pre-season heads on the road.

Yeovil Town: Nelson; James (Alfei 68'), Mugabi (Warren 46'), Donnellan (Sowunmi 62'), Dickinson (Trialist A 55'); Green (Trialist C 46'), D'Almeida (Trialist B 57'), Santos (Spencer-Clarke 86'), Browne (Rogers 74'); Jaiyesimi (Fisher 46'), Zoko (Trialist D 55').
