MATCH PREVIEW | Yeovil Town - Stockport County

Look ahead to our final match of the season

28 May 2021

Yeovil Town's season draws to a close on Saturday with the visit of Stockport County to Huish Park (12:30pm).

In attendance will be the family of Lee Collins, which coincides with the launch of the club's Crowdfunder campaign, which had the backing of a number of Collins' former sides. We ask all in attendance to give his family a warm welcome to Huish Park.

The clash with Hatters provides an opportunity to wave goodbye to Yeovil Town favourites Carl Dickinson & Jimmy Smith, who will leave the club to take up a role as Player-Manager at Hanley Town and academy coach at Chelsea.

 

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

The boss was honest that he was looking forward to a break after a difficult season on and off the pitch, “I need a rest, I am worn within an inch of my life and after this weekend I am going to have a little break.

“It has been easily the worst year of my life. I know people are critical of me and the team’s performances, but they have to understand it has been one thing after another for us.”

 

Team news

Yeovil Town will certainly be without Luke Wilkinson who will be serving a suspension following his red card against Maidenhead, however Alex Bradley will be available for selection after serving his three-match ban.

J.Smith & Dickinson will be desperate to be involved in their final fixture after injury worries.

 

A foot in the opposition camp

Stockport returned to the National League after promotion was sealed in 2018/19. The transformation under Simon Rusk since January 2021 cannot be understated, with County safely secured in the play-offs ahead of today’s season finale at Huish Park.

The star man for the visitors is Paddy Madden, a name well known amongst the Glovers faithful for his famous goal at Wembley in the 2013 League One play-off final victory over Brentford. After turning a successful loan spell at the Huish Park into a permanent deal, the Irish forward plundered 23 goals to secure the League One golden boot. However, Madden will not be available for selection due to an injury. Usually leading the line alongside him is Alex Reid, the fourth top scorer in the league, Reid has struck 17 goals this season.

 

A tribute to Lee Collins

Tomorrow afternoon, all at Yeovil Town will celebrate the life of Lee Collins with his family, holding a minute's applause prior to kick-off.

The fixture coincides with the launch of Town’s Crowdfunder campaign for Lee’s family & Young Minds, linked HERE.

After a minute’s applause in the fourth minute, supporters are once again welcome to remember our captain with an applause.

MATCH REPORT | Yeovil Town 0-1 Stockport County

Final day defeat at Huish Park

29 May 2021

Yeovil Town FC fell to a frustrating defeat to promotion hopefuls Stockport County at Huish Park. 

The Glovers more than matched their opponents and created plenty of chances in a thrilling encounter but were undone by a first half strike from John Rooney whose effort proved to be the difference between the two sides.

The men in green controlled large periods of the game and produced a number of free-flowing moves but, despite pushing Stockport until the final whistle, they couldn’t find a way past the stubborn County backline.

Darren Sarll made just two changes to the side that started against Altrincham last weekend. 

Adam Smith kept his place in goal, with Alex Bradley occupying the right-back role alongside Carl Dickinson, Billy Sass-Davies, and Michael Kelly in the back four. 

Charlie Lee began in the midfield alongside Chris DagnallLawson D’Ath and Tom Knowles, with Reuben Reid partnering Joe Quigley in attack. 

Yeovil started on the front foot and enjoyed the early proceedings putting the away side under a lot of pressure with Simon Rusk’s side knowing three points would cement their place in the Vanarama National League play-off semi-finals.  

It was the home side though that game closest in the first half, a delightful through ball out to the right-hand side from Lawson D’Ath provided Joe Quigley with a route through on goal, his right-footed effort just whistling wide at the post. 

Soon after that on the run of play, Stockport County broke the deadlock, John Rooney’s deflective strike beat the stretching Adam Smith in goal, putting County into slender lead just before half time. 

However, Yeovil responded instantly, Joe Quickley finding some space inside the box but he was unable to keep his effort down, before Tom Knowles showed a great burst of energy making an attacking run into the box, but after some great trickery, he was unable to gte a shot off against the stonewall defense 

The Glovers started the second half as they ended the first, with Joe Quigley latching onto a magnificent ball from substitute Jimmy Smith. 

After the ball rattled the woodwork, the supporters in Thatcher's End were sure that it crossed the line, however referee Scott Tallis had other ideas.  

The entertaining nature of the game also continued with Yeovil looking rampant going forward. After a consecutive spell of corners, Tom Knowles broke free down the left-hand side but his low driven cross could only find County captain Liam Hogan who cleared the ball away from danger. 

Chances did fall for the away side, just moments after, Southam-Hales’ crossfield ball found the on-running Tom Walker, before played a neat pull-back to find Rooney on the dge of the box whose half-volley whistled agonizingly above the woodwork. 

Emmanuel Sonupe was introduced for the final 15 minutes, in place of Reuban Reid to try and add that missing spark to the Town’s attack, but they still failed to find the cutting edge in the final third. 

 

Yeovil Town: A.SmithD’Ath, Sass-Davies, Dickinson, Kelly; Lee, Knowles, DagnallBradley Quigley, Reid. 

Bookings: Lee, Dagnall

Subs: Smith, Sonupe, Stephens, Heaton, Evans.
