PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Cheltenham Town

Glovers are looking to extend their winning home run to three

8 September 2017

Sid Nelson celebrates debut win over Coventry PPAUK

Town’s home form has been good this season in Sky Bet League Two.

All their points have come in Somerset, with victories over Accrington Stanley and Coventry City in August.

Huish Park is also a happy hunting ground for Southampton hotshot Olufela Olomola, who has netted three goals in two games at home as well as a further strike in the pre-season friendly against Championship outfit Bristol City.

Another loanee in Matt Worthington, who signed from AFC Bournemouth until January, could make his debut this weekend when Yeovil host Cheltenham Town.

The Robins are currently bottom of the table with just one win to their name.

Manager Gary Johnson bolstered his options towards the end of the transfer window with a trio of loans from Bristol City, experienced keeper Scott Flinders and ex-West Ham United youngster Jaanai Gordon.

All five featured for the Gloucestershire side last weekend but couldn’t prevent them from suffering a 1-0 defeat to Stevenage.

Head-to-head
Town are unbeaten in their last three games at home to Cheltenham Town.

Last season, Otis Khan set the Glovers on their way to a 4-2 victory at Huish Park.

Before that match, the Green and Whites hadn’t faced the Robins in Somerset since Boxing Day 2008.

Officials
Dean Whitestone will be the man in the middle this weekend. 

All of Mr Whitestone’s league matches have come in League One this season.

The Bedfordshire-born official has refereed seven games last season, dishing out 18 yellow cards but no reds.

Coy officiated three Town fixtures last term – both ties against Newport County and the draw at Accrington.

He will be assisted by Kevin Morris (Herefordshire) and Craig Taylor (West Midlands) with Marc Whaley (Devon) acting as fourth official.
