INTERVIEW | Way discusses team news for the weekend

Town boss has ins and outs to consider

Manager Darren Way has given an update on the fitness of his squad as Town head to Stevenage on Saturday (3pm).

The Glovers head to Hertfordshire looking to extend their five-match unbeaten run, which has included three wins and a draw in Sky Bet League Two. 

Looking to record the double over Boro after the 3-0 win at Huish Park back in October, the Green & Whites will head to Broadhall Way without Francois Zoko (suspended), James Bailey (knee), Marcus Barnes (ankle) and Dan Alfei (knee). 

With questions marks over the fitness of Bevis Mugabi, Artur Krysiak and Nathan Smith, the Town boss told YTFC.net: “Bevis is sweating a little bit more, my physio is putting him through a little bit more pain and he’s looking fitter, so fingers crossed he’ll be fit for Saturday. 

“Artur is meeting a specialist about his knee, so we’ll wait and see on that one.

“Smithy is not looking good, he could be out for some time but we’ve got to make sure we get the medical reasoning as to how long it’s going to be.”

Yeovil will be boosted by the potential return of 10-goal man Otis Khan, who is available for selection after serving a five-match ban.

Having nursed a wrist injury during that time, Way is still debating the winger’s level of involvement.

“He’s has looked very sharp in training because he’s been allowed to train so he hasn’t missed any training. If it feels right to select him, he’s another good addition to have.

“Otis is a fantastic player,” he said. “I like his characteristics, I like his personality and have a lot of time for Otis and feel very proud he decided to stay at this football club.

“He’s a very humble lad and I’m sure he’s going to get to the top.”
