PREVIEW | AFC Fylde - Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town make their first trip to the Mill Farm Sports Complex

20 December 2019

Yeovil Town travel to Lancashire to face AFC Fylde on Saturday (3pm) for the start of the festive fixtures.

After an unbeaten run of six games, Yeovil will be looking to close the gap on league leaders Barrow with a win at the Mill Farm Sports Complex.

The hosts have surprised many by scrapping it out at the lower end of the table this season. The current FA Trophy holders were a promotion favourite for many, but have not seen last season’s form replicated, instead they are sitting in 18th place.

Forward Danny Rowe will be seen as a danger man for Fylde. Despite not hitting the heights of his red-hot form last year, Rowe has hit six league goals this season, and netted last weekend in the FA Trophy against Curzon Ashton.

Head-to-head

Earlier this season, Yeovil Town beat AFC Fylde 3-2 in Somerset, thanks to goals from Rhys Murphy, Myles Hippolyte and a Jimmy Smith debut goal.

Before the clash at Huish Park earlier this season, the two sides had never met due to AFC Fylde’s recent surge through the non-league pyramid to reach the National League.

Officials

Elliott Swallow will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon. Last time out, Swallow took charge of Wrexham vs. Solihull Moors where the official was forced to show 11 yellow cards! 

Swallow will be assisted by Alan Hull and Robert Wainwright with Oliver Nolan acting as the fourth official.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT | AFC Fylde 2-2 Yeovil Town

21 December 2019

Courtney Duffus’ quickfire double was enough to snatch a point away to AFC Fylde.

After conceding a freak own-goal and being caught on the counter by Mark Bradley, Duffus stepped up and scored twice in a minute to snatch a point.

After heavily rotating the side in the FA Trophy, Darren Sarll returned to a more familiar set-up.

Long-term injury absence, Luke Wilkinson returned to the side for the first time since the draw with Wrexham where he limped off in the first half.

Matt Worthington and James Tilley dropped out of the midfield as Charlie Lee returned to the midfield with top scorer Rhys Murphy back spearheading the attack.

Both sides began proceedings at a slow pace, feeling the other out and limiting the chances to pot shots from distance.

As the game grew, so did the number of chances, the first falling to Duffus who had found a way in behind following some great two-touch football, but he couldn’t direct his effort on target.  

Just minutes later, Stuart Nelson was called upon to make a spectacular save! After the Yeovil backline couldn’t clear their lines, Matty Kosylo hammered an effort goal bound but some brilliant goalkeeping from Yeovil’s number one kept scores level.

Despite the hosts enjoying a lot of the ball, Yeovil would have the better of the chances as Duffus again went close, this time with a header, and minutes following Charlie Lee with an effort from distance

Yeovil were made to pay for missing chances as the Glovers conceded a freak goal in the 34th minute. With the ball flying around the box, the ball smashed against Myles Hippolyte who saw the ball fly past Nelson to give the hosts the lead.

The goal knocked the stuffing out of Yeovil for the closing period, as Town looked to see the half out by staying within arms-reach of the hosts.

Yeovil began the second half brightly, with Hippolyte and Chris Dagnall both creating shooting opportunities for themselves but neither caused any significant goal-threat.

Tempers came to a boil out of nowhere as Carl Dickinson and Kosylo were involved in a scuffle which ended with both players booked.

Yeovil continued to be the side applying the pressure, but a clear-cut chance just wouldn’t fall.

Despite Yeovil’s pressure it would be Fylde who scored the second, catching the green and whites with too many men forward as Bradley fired past Nelson to double the Coasters lead.

The second goal kicked Yeovil up a gear, with Gabe Osho moved to right back, the Reading loanee put in an expertly weighted cross which was met by Duffus to give Town a lifeline.

Just one-minute later, Duffus would have his second of the afternoon. After a misplaced pass from Hornby, the Glovers forward capitalised, calmly slotting home to drag Yeovil level.

The closing minutes saw both sides try to claim that all-important winning goal, but neither could get it as the points were shared.

 

AFC Fylde: Hornby, Byrne, Whitmore, Kosylo, Croasdale (Willoughby), Rowe, Philliskirk, Burke, Bradley, Taylor, Yeates (Craigen).

Bookings: Kosylo

Subs not used:  Lavercombe, Jameson, Haughton.

 

Yeovil Town: Nelson; Skendi, Osho, Wilkinson, Dickinson; Lee (Worthington), Hippolyte (Tilley), D’Ath (Collins); Dagnall, Duffus, Murphy
