Darren Way shouts instructions against Port Vale PPAUK

Manager Darren Way is relishing Town's Easter Monday trip to Coventry City (3pm) despite the hosts' good form.

The Sky Blues are seven unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two with four wins and three draws to their name, most recently coming away from Newport with a 1-1 draw on Good Friday.

Sitting in a play-off spot as a result, Way takes his Yeovil side to the West Midlands looking to repeat August's 2-0 win from the reverse fixture back in August. 

Rhys Browne and former loanee Olufela Olomola got Town over the line on that occasion, with the Yeovil manager looking for a repeat performance. 

"They're all tough games, I keep saying it," Way told "The last game (against Coventry) that we played we put in a big, big performance, which showed we can go up against big teams. 

"We put in a terrific performance that day and I think we surprised Coventry, to be honest."

Enjoying a run of good form themselves, the Green & Whites head to the Ricoh Arena looking to build on their 1-0 win at Colchester last time out. 

After a fortnight without a match, Way was also full of praise for his managerial counterpart. 

"Speaking to Mark Robins, they’re a very good team with a good budget and a good stadium to play in.

"They tick all the right boxes for a club trying to progress forward considering how they've had a tough time with supporters and owners and I think Mark has done a great job there."
