22 December 2017

Sam Surridge rides a challenge PPAUK

The Glovers entertain Exeter City at Huish Park - their final home match of 2017.

Having lost at home just three times all season, Darren Way's side will be in buoyant mood coming into the West Country clash. 

Fresh from picking up a point at play-off chasing Mansfield last weekend, Town will be looking to build on their last outing on home soil which saw Port Vale dispatched in the Emirates FA Cup second round replay.

Otis Khan scored twice to become Yeovil's outright top scorer with nine goals, whilst Francois Zoko tucked home the winner with his eighth of the season.

The Green and Whites are without any fresh injury concerns, with Rhys Browne (hamstring) and Oscar Gobern (hamstring) the only absentees. 

With virtually a full squad to pick from, the Glovers will lineup against an Exeter side unbeaten in their last two outings. 

FA Cup progression against Forest Green Rovers was backed up with a league win over Stevenage, a result which sees Paul Tisdale's side come to Somerset inside the automatic promotion spots. 

Looking to go one better than last season's play-off final disappointment, the Grecians head to Huish boasting top scorers Jayden Stockley (11 goals) and former Town striker Reuben Reid (eight goals).

Head-to-head
Saturday's fixture will be the 15 competitive meeting between the two sides.

Drawing five and winning four, Yeovil will be looking to match City's five victories. 

Town's last win at home to Exeter came in 2010, with Stefan Stam and Ryan Mason securing a 2-1 win.

Officials
Lee Swabey (Devon) will take charge of the Sky Bet League Two clash.

Saturday will be Mr Swabey's sixth match of the season, having last overseen Luton's 2-1 win at Forest Green Rovers last weekend, issuing one red and four yellow cards. 

Ravel Cheosiaua (Worcestershire) and Andrew Williams (Middlesex) will be his assistants, with Mark Pottage (Dorset) acting as fourth official.
