The Glovers entertain Carlisle United on Saturday (3pm), looking to record a fifth straight win at home in all competitions.

Huish Park has seen league victories over Grimsby, Cambridge United and Barnet as well as Checkatrade Trophy success against Fleetwood. 

Looking to build on three consecutive league clean sheets at Huish Park, Darren Way is keen to point out recent exploits at home despite last weekend's defeat on the road at Stevenage.

"If you believe in the players and take that game out (Stevenage), you realise how well the players have done," he told iFollow Glovers.

"Some of the home form has probably been the best since we got promoted out of League One, so it has been very good form and we have to focus on that, be positive and make sure we maintain it.

"It's been a good week in training and I've seen a lot of exciting play and I want the players to bring that to the game on Saturday.

"We’ve got to make sure we're resilient; we've kept three straight clean sheets at home so we want to get back to that and put on a performance we're all proud of, not just the supporters."

In order to continue recent success at Huish Park, Town will have to record a win over the Cumbrians for the first time since 2011. 

Saturday's encounter will be the seventh time Yeovil's boss has taken on Keith Curle's side, who he watched beat Barnet in midweek.

Way said: "I thought tactically, Keith did very well with the subs he made, they were very astute and changed the game.

"It shows they have a squad and not just a starting eleven that can affect the game so we have to be aware of that for 90 minutes because they finished very strongly. 

"They have caused us big, big problems over the seasons at their place and I've played Carlisle more than any other team since I've been manager. We have to make sure we're prepared, but I'm looking forward to the game."
