Yeovil Town are back on the road this Saturday (3pm) with a trip to Chesterfield in National League action.

The Glovers, who returned to winning ways on Tuesday evening, will be hoping to secure a second away win of the season when they travel to Derbyshire.

For the hosts, after a rocky patch they’ve picked up form again, with back-to-back wins in their most recent games.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Commenting on our opponents in his pre-match presser, the boss said; “They have got some really good players, certainly in forward areas.”

“They have got some good ball players, so we will have to be really good with the ball ourselves, and make sure we have plenty of it, the more of the ball we have, the less chance the opposition will have to score.”

Team news

Morgan Williams limped off on Tuesday after just one minute of action at Huish Park – he won’t be involved against Chesterfield. Max Hunt also remains unavailable and will not be able to play against his hometown club. Charlie Wakefield continues to struggle with a back injury.

Jack Clarke, despite being injured, would not be available for this weekend’s game anyway as it’s against his parent club.

On Tuesday night, new signing Reo Griffiths was an unused substitute, so he is yet to make his Yeovil Town debut. Scott Pollock was not in the squad against Eastleigh as he is carrying an injury.

A foot in the opposition camp

After a rocky start to the new year, thinks have picked up at the Technique Stadium. Back-to-back wins have seen Paul Cook’s side maintain their play-off position, whilst the signing of forwards Andrew Dallas from Solihull Moors and Paul McCallum from Dagenham & Redbridge will do their attacking options no harm.

Joe Quigley is one of the former Glovers in the Chesterfield camp, having joined for an undisclosed fee from Yeovil midway through last season. He hasn’t been a starter in recent weeks and hasn’t found the back of the net since a double against Scunthorpe on Boxing Day.

Have we met before?

Our first ever meeting with Chesterfield came in an FA Cup third round clash in 1950, where Yeovil were defeated 3-1 at Chesterfield’s old ground, Saltergate.

Prior to 2019, the two clubs had only ever met in league action within the EFL. The Glovers have won just once against Chesterfield in the National League, in December 2019 at the Technique Stadium 2-1 thanks to goals from Myles Hippolyte and Rhys Murphy. 

Last season, Chesterfield completed the double over Town, winning 1-0 at the Technique Stadium and 2-0 at Huish Park.

Earlier this campaign, Town were held to a 2-2 draw against Cook’s side, with Gime Toure and Josh Staunton amongst the goals.
