Yeovil Town return to Huish Park to face FC Halifax Town on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

The Glovers, who are unbeaten in three, will be hoping to replicate their last home performance where they beat Gateshead 3-1.

The visitors are one of the National League’s form sides, after a difficult start to the season, they have picked up ten points in their last five games.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Speaking ahead of the game, the boss said; “We have to perform really well to get anything off Halifax because they are really durable.”

Team news

Yeovil’s defence will be boosted by the return of Ben Richards-Everton who is back in training.

However, Charlie Wakefield will remain on the sidelines for Saturday’s game.

Lawson D’Ath made his return to the squad last weekend but did not make it off the bench, he’ll be hopeful of some minutes this weekend.

A foot in the opposition camp

There’s been a lot of change since we last met FC Halifax Town. Long-serving manager Pete Wild has departed and ventured to the Football League with Barrow, taking some of his star performers with him.

Wild’s departure saw assistant Chris Millington step into the role, something Cooper said he has taken to ‘like a duck to water.’

After a sticky start to the season, the Shaymen have picked up ten points from their last five games and will prove a strong test for the Glovers.

Have we met before?

There’s been a number of tight affairs between the two sides since Yeovil dropped into the National League.

Last season, both sides won their home fixture by a 1-0 scoreline. Joe Quigley bagged the goal for Yeovil, with Green & Whites breaking their BT Sport hoodoo at the start of the 21/22 season.

The most memorable encounter between the two sides for many saw ten-man Yeovil secure three points thanks to a double from Courtney Duffus in 2019. A certain Morgan Williams made his Yeovil Town debut that day alongside Gabe Osho at the centre of defence.

What’s on at Huish Park?

We’ll be showing the World Cup in the Alec Stock Lounge prior to kick-off, as Robert Lewandowski’s Poland face Saudi Arabia, who will be full of confidence after they pulled off a shock against Argentina.

The bar will remain open after the game for the closing stages of France against Denmark.

The Green & Whites Supporters Bar is also open, exclusively for members.


Tickets for the game can be purchased from the online ticket office until midday on match day for physical tickets, but until kick-off for e-tickets/print at home. 

Following this, they can be purchased in person from the ticket office, however this is subject to a small price increased. We strongly recommend getting to Huish Park early to avoid queues.
