Yeovil Town return to Huish Park this Saturday to face Bromley in National League action.

After three games on the road, the Glovers will be back to home comforts where they have a far stronger record this season.

The visitors sit in 11th place and have largely fallen away from the play-off picture, now nine points away from the final play-off place.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Speaking ahead of the game, Cooper said; “We seem to enjoy playing at home. Every game I’ve been here, we’ve been really competitive and haven’t been outdone in any game.

“We got beat 4-1 by Notts County but I thought we were brilliant, we may have lost to Woking but I thought we deserved to get a point out of that.

“We are looking forward to being at home, in front of the fans. You saw the lift they gave the players in the last game (against Eastleigh), they played magnificently well.

Team news

Scott Pollock has enjoyed his first full week on the training pitch and could see some involvement this weekend, so could new signings Callum Harriott, Miguel Freckleton and Zanda Siziba.

Max Hunt is back in training, but the defender may not be ready for a return this weekend. After his injury against Halifax, Edwin Agbaje has returned to Ipswich Town and will not be available for the Glovers for the remainder of the season.

On the suspension front, Matt Worthington will serve the first of a two game ban this weekend for the accumulation of ten yellow cards.

A foot in the opposition camp

After an FA Trophy win last season, many expected Bromley to kick on and launch a play-off push, but in truth, this hasn’t quite materialised.

However, the Ravens still boast some of the best attacking talent in the National League, with Adam Marriott and Michael Cheek leading the line at Hayes Lane.

Familiar faces include Byron Webster, a promotion winner to the Championship with the Glovers, and Omar Sowumni.

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.

Earlier this season, Town fell to a 4-1 defeat at Hayes Lane.
