PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN v PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

31 January 2017

All you need to know ahead of Town’s rearranged fixture against Plymouth Argyle in Sky Bet League Two tonight (7.45pm).


Boss Darren Way said Doncaster Rovers’ display against Town on Saturday was where he aspires for his side to be.


The Glovers suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to the league leaders and tonight take on another team vying for promotion to League One.


Second-placed Plymouth Argyle visit Huish Park after five wins in seven matches and sit seven points behind Doncaster with two games in hand.


The Pilgrims have potential goalscorers all over the pitch with defender Sonny Bradley pitching in with five, while forward Jake Jervis has nine goals to his name.


Irishman Graham Carey is Plymouth’s key man. The 27-year-old has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Argyle this season, and assisted on nine occasions - the joint-third best in the division.


Head-to-head

Both of Yeovil’s wins over Plymouth have come at Huish Park (D2 L4).


The Pilgrims have won two of the last three contests between the two sides, running out convincing winners at Home Park last time out.


One of Town’s victories over Argyle came in 2004 where a Lee Johnson hat-trick helped the Glovers shock their then Championship opponents in the League Cup.


Referee

Kevin Johnson (Somerset) will take charge of his 20th game of the season tonight.


Mr. Johnson has awarded 57 yellow cards and two red cards so far this season and officiated Town’s win over Portsmouth in the Checkatrade Trophy and the 1-0 home loss to Hartlepool United.


The Somerset-based official will be assisted by Ravel Cheoslaua (Worcestershire) and Dean Treleaven (West Sussex) with Michael Webb (Surrey) acting as fourth official.
