Yeovil Town travel to Notts County on Saturday afternoon (3pm), looking to cause an upset in front of a record breaking crowd at Meadow Lane.

Bolstered by a victory over Gateshead last weekend, Mark Cooper’s will arrive at Meadow Lane with a quiet confidence that they cause an upset in front of at least 16,000 supporters.

For the hosts, they sit top of the league and will be hoping to put in a performance in front of the bumper crowd.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

The gaffer shared his thoughts to the press on Thursday afternoon.

There’s not really any pressure on us,” said the Boss. “We can go there and enjoy ourselves, but you can enjoy yourselves more if you get a result.

It’s a great stadium and great pitch and we are playing against a really good team, so we are all really looking forward to it.

Watch the full press conference:

Team news

Yeovil Town will certainly be without Charlie Wakefield who hasn’t trained this week. Neither have Ben Richards-Everton or Josh Staunton who have had injections, however the two are closer to a return than the former Chelsea youngster.

However, the Glovers have been bolstered by Lawson D’Ath and Morgan Williams returning to training.

A foot in the opposition camp

It’s been a strong start to the season for the Magpies who sit top of the National League at this stage. After losing manager Ian Burchnall to Forest Green Rovers, Luke Williams took the reins and has fired them to the top of the table.

Much has been attributed to strong recruitment in the summer, most notably Macauley Langstaff who is the top scorer in the division with 18 goals.

This recruitment, on top of an already strong core has led to promotion hopes amongst the Meadow Lane faithful.

Have we met before?

Fixtures between the two sides have been a regular occurrence in recent seasons, with the two sides dropping out of League Two together in 2019.

Yeovil have found form difficult to find against the Magpies, having not won since their first National League meeting at Huish Park in August 2019.

In our last trip to Meadow Lane, Yeovil were a matter of minutes away from breaking that record, but Alex Bradley’s second half strike was wiped out by a last-minute equaliser.
