PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Crewe Alexandra

Glovers hoping to bounce from previous home outing

Daniel Alfei’s ACL injury sees Yeovil’s squad decrease to 20 players until at least January.

There are no other injury concerns for Darren Way’s side ahead of the weekend as they look to bounce back from consecutive defeats in Sky Bet League Two.

Prior to their defeat to Colchester United in their last outing at Huish Park, Town were unbeaten in five matches at home.

The Glovers have had five different goalscorers at home this season – all attacking players.

Olufela Olomola (3), Francois Zoko (2), Rhys Browne, Otis Khan and Sam Surridge have all notched in front of the home faithful and will look to add to their totals this weekend against Crewe Alexandra.

The Railwaymen ended their five-match losing streak in the league with a 1-0 win over Stevenage last weekend.

Forward Jordan Bowery, formerly of Aston Villa, was on target and he will battle it out for a position up front with experienced duo Chris Dagnall and Chris Porter.

Crewe have opted for a different goalkeeper in recent weeks with ex-Bristol City and Cardiff City man Dave Richards replacing long-serving Ben Garratt between the sticks.

Head-to-head
Town have won seven matches against Crewe since 2006 (D1 L4).

The Glovers recorded the double over the Cheshire outfit last season, winning 1-0 at Gresty Road before a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture in April.

Nine of the 12 matches between the two sides have seen scores to nil – five in Yeovil’s favour, four in Crewe’s.

Officials
Ben Toner will be the man in the middle this weekend. 

The Lancashire-born official was in charge of Yeovil’s 5-2 Checkatrade Trophy defeat at Luton Town.

This term, Toner has refereed eight matches and has issued 21 yellows and one red.

He will be assisted by Steven Plane (Worcestershire) and Matthew Lee (West Sussex) with Samuel Ogles (Hampshire) acting as fourth official.
