Yeovil Town face the 686-mile round trip to Gateshead on Tuesday evening, in a huge clash at the bottom of the National League.

The Glovers, who occupy the final relegation place face the team sitting above them at the Gateshead International Stadium.

The Heed have turned things round since the start of the season, and having just secured a trip to Wembley for the FA Trophy final, will be full of confidence for this one.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

The boss spoke post-match following a defeat to Southend United last weekend; “I don’t think you can question their fight (the players).

“That’s one thing that I can’t question – you see the effort. If you look at the data, the distance and sprints that they put in, we can’t question their fight.”

Team news

Matt Worthington is a welcome boost to the Yeovil Town team sheet after his suspension came to an end.

However, after gaining one from suspension, the Glovers will lose on after Miguel Freckleton’s red card.

After his nasty injury on Saturday, Alex Fisher will certainly miss out as he heads to surgery and a long spell on the sidelines.

A foot in the opposition camp

After a poor start to the season, Gateshead have turned things round and now sit outside of the relegation zone.

In the dugout for the Heed is former Newcastle United man Mike Williamson, he seldom pulls on the shirt for Gateshead too, starting in the game against Yeovil at Huish Park.

At the weekend, a penalty win over Barnet saw Gateshead secure a trip to Wembley to face FC Halifax Town in the FA Trophy final.

Have we met before?

Earlier this season, Yeovil were the 3-1 winners against Gateshead, with Fisher scoring twice before Malachi Linton wrapped it up late on.

Prior to this, the last time we faced the Heed was in 1998, as the Glovers were the winners in a 9-goal thriller, which finished 6-3. Earlier that season, the Glovers won 3-0 in the North East. 

The two sides haven’t met since, with Gateshead being relegated from the Conference that season, whilst the Glovers sustained themselves in the division, before promotion under Gary Johnson in 2003.
