Yeovil Town are back on the road this Saturday (12:30pm) with a trip to Bromley in National League action.

After a strong run of form which has seen the Glovers unbeaten in four, Mark Cooper’s side will be full of confidence ahead of the clash at Hayes Lane.

The opposite can be said of Bromley, who have won just once since early October, that coming against Dorking last time out.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

The boss spoke to the press before boarding the bus to Bromley on Friday afternoon:

Team news

Yeovil Town will certainly be without Matt Worthington who serves his one-match suspension this weekend. Lawson D’Ath could be the ready made replacement after he has returned to the match-day squad in the last two weeks.

Returning to training this week, Charlie Wakefield could be in line for a return to the squad. Ben Richards-Everton was back in training last week but did not make the squad against Halifax, he could be involved this time round.

A foot in the opposition camp

Saturday’s hosts have blown hot and cold this season. After a solid start to the season which saw the Ravens sit in a play-off place they have dropped out following a poor run of form, which saw one win in their last seven league games.

There’s a number of former Glovers in the ranks at Hayes Lane, including League One play-off winner Byron Webster – the towering defender now wears the armband for the Ravens.

Have we met before?

Fixtures against the Ravens are typically dramatic affairs. In our first season back at the level, the Glovers claimed four points from the two games between the sides, Town’s win came in September 2019 at Huish Park, goals from Charlie Lee, Jimmy Smith and an own goal extended a winning run to seven games. Just two months later, a stoppage time Rhys Murphy goal secured a point for the Glovers at Hayes Lane. 

The 2020/21 season saw three between the two sides, with the Glovers winning two of them. In November 2020, a Gabby Rogers strike in extra time secured passage to the FA Cup Second Round. Just one month later, Yeovil travelled to Hayes Lane once again and secured their first National League win of the season. 

In last season’s trip to Hayes Lane, wonder strikes from Tom Knowles and Charlie Wakefield ensured Yeovil returned to Somerset with three points. At Huish Park, Yeovil were 2-1 victors thanks to goals from D’Ath and Knowles.
