PREVIEW | Cheltenham Town v Yeovil Town

It's a Boxing Day trip to Gloucestershire for the Glovers

24 December 2017

Sam Surridge celebrates his goal v Exeter PPAUK

The race to be the Glovers’ top goalscorer in 2017/18 got hotter on Saturday with Francois Zoko and Sam Surridge netting.

Zoko slotted home his ninth of the campaign and his 30th for the club, moving him second on Town’s all-time EFL goalscorers list, while Surridge’s goal was his sixth in Green and White.

Darren Way’s side produced a sterling display against Exeter City to make it three games unbeaten in all competitions.

Olufela Olomola was a late drop out from the squad due to illness but should be good to face Cheltenham Town on Boxing Day.

Rhys Browne (ankle), Dan Alfei (knee) and Oscar Gobern (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Cheltenham are 14th in Sky Bet League Two following a 2-0 win at Barnet.

Ex-Glover Kevin Dawson was on target for the Robins who have lost just one in their last five matches.

Bristol City loanee Joe Morrell makes things tick in midfield while Mohamed Eisa is Gary Johnson's main marksmen with 10 goals.

Yeovil have won four of 13 meetings between the two sides in the EFL (D5 L4).

This season has already seen a goalless draw at Huish Park, but the last outing at Whaddon Road ended 2-0 to the hosts.

Town’s last win in Gloucestershire came in 2007 courtesy of a Wayne Gray double.

Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire) will take charge of the Sky Bet League Two clash.

It will be his third Glovers match of the season, having overseen the home wins over a Accrington Stanley and Stevenage – dishing out three red cards in the latter.

In his 24 games so far this term, he has issued a total of 78 yellow cards and five reds.

Sarginson will be assisted by Craig Taylor (West Midlands) and Ian Rathbone (Northamptonshire) will be his assistants, with Thomas Harty (West Midlands) acting as fourth official.
