PREVIEW | Yeovil Town - FC Halifax Town

Halifax Town the visitors as the Glovers return to Huish Park.

6 December 2019

After a dramatic draw on the road against Bromley, Darren Sarll's side look to return to winning ways as FC Halifax Town visit Huish Park on Saturday (3pm).

Following Rhys Murphy’s last gasp equaliser at Hayes Lane, the Glovers now sit in fourth, with Rhys Murphy sitting top of the scoring charts.

The Shaymen have been on a similar run to Yeovil as of late, drawing their last three games and without a win in four, this fixture offers great opportunity for both sides to turn their fortunes.

Looking for a first victory in five matches, Sarll will likely be relieved to see the return of defender Carl Dickinson who has been out with injury for a month.  

Head-to-head

Saturday's clash will be the second meeting between the two sides this season. In August, Town comfortably dispatched the then top of the league Halifax by 0-2 thanks to a Gold Omotayo double.

Before this season, the two sides had not faced each other since the Glovers earned promotion to the Football League in 2003.

In the last clash at Huish Park, Town would be the 3-0 victors thanks to goals from Gavin Williams and a Nick Crittenden double.

Officials

The man in the middle this weekend will be Gary Parsons. This will be his second Glovers match of the season, previously taking charge of our victory away to Aldershot Town.

Parsons will be assisted by Shaun Barry and Robin Cox, with James Robinson acting as the fourth official.

Match Reports

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-0 FC Halifax Town

Ten-man Town produce a stunning performance

7 December 2019

Ten-man Yeovil Town battled to a deserved 2-0 victory over FC Halifax Town.

Courtney Duffus’ double was enough to ensure Town returned to winning ways at Huish Park.

After Gold Omotayo’s early red card Glovers fans would have been forgiven for fearing the worst

However, the resilient green and whites would come out the victors with a memorable team performance.

Darren Sarll was forced into a number of changes due to suspensions and injuries ravaging his squad.

Following their loan signing, Morgan Williams and Gabriel Osho partnered each other at centre back, with Carl Dickinson returning to captain the side.

There also were returns for Chris Dagnall and Omotayo in the forward line as Jimmy Smith picked up an injury and Rhys Murphy being unable to attend due to personal matters.

Omotayo’s return to the side only lasted seven minutes as the tall forward was sent off for an alleged stamp on Jeff King.

The sending off didn’t dishearten the Glovers as chances continued to fall. Duffus went close in the 15th minute after some great work from Myles Hippolyte, the striker’s first time skewed wide of the mark.

Halifax did apply some pressure but couldn’t fashion anything clear cut as Town’s new centre half partnership Osho and Williams stood strong.

Charlie Lee also went close for Yeovil, after a well worked set-piece routine, the midfielder’s effort fell straight into Sam Johnson’s gloves.

In what was a outstanding team performance, Duffus finished off a brilliant team goal. After a driving run from Hippolyte, the midfielder then played the ball to Dagnall in the box, the former Bury man then beautifully found Duffus with a well-weighted cross, for the striker to head the green and whites into the lead.

The lead could have been doubled just minutes later as Lawson D’Ath played through Dagnall with a lofted pass, but his half-volley was placed narrowly wide.

At the break, Yeovil held a deserved lead, despite being a man down.

The visitors began the second half on-top, forcing the play onto the Yeovil backline but struggling to create anything clear-cut.

The Shaymen thought they had found a way in behind in the 53rd minute but a stunning challenge from Osho put an end to the attack.

Tempers came to a boil as the game became more of a battle, leading to a member of Halifax’s coaching staff being booked.

Despite late pressure from the visitors, it would be Yeovil who scored the second and final goal of the game. With everyone forward, Duffus capitalised on the lack of numbers defending, calmly slotting past Sam Johnson to secure a vital win.

Victory takes the green and whites up to third in the National League, chasing Barrow and Bromley in the places above them.
