3 February 2017

All you need to know ahead of Town’s trip to Hartlepool United in Sky Bet League Two tomorrow (3pm).


Darren Way’s side ended their eight-match winless run with an impressive win over high-flying Plymouth Argyle in midweek.


Centre-back pairing Nathan Smith and Alex Lacey grabbed the Glovers’ first goals at Huish Park in the league for nearly two months (thanks to our friends in the Argyle media team for that stat).

Yeovil’s last two away matches have ended in score draws (Wycombe Wanderers (1-1), Blackpool (2-2), while opponents Hartlepool United have won four of their last seven at Victoria Park.

Padraig Amond has been in fine form this season with ten goals to his name while Nathan Thomas proved a handful in the reverse fixture, netting two goals for Hartlepool in a 2-1 victory in Somerset.


Head-to-head
