16th December 2016

Town will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways following last week’s narrow loss to Barnet.

The defeat to the Bees was the Glovers’ first loss in League Two for eight matches and the same number at Huish Park.

However, Darren Way’s side are just two points outside the play-offs and with a healthy record on the road.

Yeovil have not lost on the road in their last three, and could extend that sequence against Carlisle tomorrow.

The Cumbrians themselves have been in terrific form this season and lie in second place.

Keith Curle’s outfit have just one league loss to their name – a 2-0 defeat to bottom club Newport County in November.


Yeovil and Carlisle faced each other on four occasions in the 2015/16 season.

The Glovers suffered a 3-2 defeat on Halloween, before coming from behind to draw 2-2 at Brunton Park in the Emirates FA Cup third round.

The replay was won by the Cumbrians on penalties following an ill-tempered affair at Huish Park.

The final meeting between the two teams ended goalless back in March.


Darren Handley (Lancashire) will take charge of his 22nd game of the season tomorrow – his first match since Port Vale’s 4-0 Emirates FA Cup win over Hartlepool United on December 4th.

Mr. Handley has awarded 76 yellow and two red cards so far this campaign, and is yet to officiate a Town fixture in 2016.

The Lancashire-based official last took charge of a Yeovil match in February 2015, overseeing Town’s 1-0 loss to Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road. 

Mr. Handley will be assisted by Richard Wild (Lancashire) and Richard Bartlett (Cheshire) with Alf Greenwood (North Yorkshire) acting as fourth official.
