Carlisle United striker Paddy Madden could become a contracted Yeovil Town man in January after the Glovers revealed a permanent switch had been discussed. The Irish hit man extended his loan at Huish Park until the end of the year last week after smashing five goals in as many npower League One games since heading south.
Two goals in four first half minutes condemned Yeovil Town’s ten men to a dismal First Round FA Cup exit at Preston North End. The Glovers more than matched their physical npower League One rivals for long periods but lacked quality in the final third and were made to pay by conceding a brace of goals before the break and a third in the second half.
Joel Byrom replaced the suspended John Welsh in Preston North End’s midfield for their FA Cup first round clash with Yeovil Town at Deepdale. Preston North End eased into the second round of the FA Cup with a comfortable victory over Yeovil Town at Deepdale. Two goals in two minutes towards the end of the first half put PNE in the driving seat, Joel Byrom and substitute David Amoo on target. Yeovil midfielder Ed Upson was sent-off for the second time at Deepdale this season, seeing red in the 63rd minute for a lunge at Byrom. And North End took advantage of the extra man as Chris Robertson headed home their third after 70 minutes.
North End booked their place in the second round of the FA Cup with a comprehensive home win over Yeovil Town at Deepdale.
Goals from Joel Byrom, David Amoo and Chris Robertson saw the Lilywhites through and into the draw
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson had to bite his tongue after seeing his team dumped out of the FA Cup by Preston. Two goals in three first-half minutes from Joel Byrom and David Amoo left the Glovers with a considerable mountain to climb at Deepdale, with the situation getting worse after the break.
Former Yeovil Town, Birmingham and Oxford United striker Howard Forinton has left struggling Woodford United, who have lost every game so far in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central.
