PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN V CRAWLEY TOWN

21 November 2016

All you need to know ahead of Town’s home match against Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two tomorrow (7.45pm).

Town continued their impressive league form of late by seeing off Colchester United on Saturday.


Tahvon Campbell netted in the dying embers of the match to earn the Glovers three points and move them up to eighth in the table.


Darren Way’s side only outside the play-offs on goal difference but could climb into the top seven with a win over Crawley Town tomorrow night (7.45pm).


The West Sussex outfit began the campaign in fine fashion and found themselves up with the early promotion-chasing pack.


However, the Red Devils are now winless in six matches, including three losses on the bounce – a run that has seen them drop to 16th.


Striker James Collins has a track record of scoring goals in League Two, previously helping Shrewsbury Town to promotion with 17 goals and pitching in with eight during Northampton Town’s title-winning season last year.


Head-to-head

Yeovil have faced Crawley on just seven occasions in their history, and have been blessed with good form against Dermot Drummy’s side.


The Glovers have beaten the Reds five times, including the last four games in a row.


Last time out, Town secured a 2-1 victory over Crawley thanks to goals from Ryan Bird and Saturday’s match-winner Tahvon Campbell.


Referee

Lee Collins (Surrey), who will take charge of his 5th game of the season tomorrow, last refereed back in August.


Mr. Collins has awarded 12 yellow cards and one red card. He refereed Town’s goalless draw at Wycombe Wanderers last April.


Mr. Collins will be assisted by Adrian Tranter (Dorset) and Kevin Howick (Berkshire) with Kevin Johnson (Somerset) acting as fourth official.
