PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v CAMBRIDGE UNITED

14 February 2017

All you need to know ahead of Town’s match against Cambridge United in Sky Bet League Two tonight (7.45pm).


Despite the frustration of conceding a late goal on Saturday, Town made it three matches unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two with a draw against Leyton Orient.


Francois Zoko netted his ninth of the campaign in all competitions and became the Glovers’ top scorer.


However, the Ivorian forward was withdrawn from the field early due to a whack on his ankle.


Left-back Ryan Dickson was also replaced due to injury and will be assessed ahead of tonight’s visit of Cambridge United.


The U’s have lost their last four matches in the league and lie 14th in the table.


Shaun Derry’s have scored just once in their previous five games and have conceded eight goals.


Luke Berry possesses a goalscoring threat from midfield while Uche Ikpeazu provides Cambridge’s up top.


Head-to-head

Yeovil won their first five fixtures against Cambridge but have failed to pick up a point in their last three meetings with the U’s.


Darren Way was in the heart of the midfield the last time Town defeated Cambridge back in 2005. 


Paul Terry’s opener was cancelled out by Shane Tudor’s 77th-minute strike but Phil Jevons netted from the sport four minutes from time to earn the Glovers all three points.


Last time out, Mark Roberts bundled home for Cambridge in a 1-0 win at the Abbey Stadium in September. 


Referee

Brett Huxtable (Devon) will take charge of his 28th game of the season when Town host Cambridge.


Mr Huxtable has awarded 92 yellow cards so far this campaign and has issued two red cards.


The Devon-born official issued eight bookings in Town’s 2-1 win over Colchester United.


Mr Huxtable will be assisted by Steven Plane (Worcestershire) and Adrian Tranter (Dorset) with Marc Whaley (Devon) acting as fourth official.
