Yeovil Town’s final home fixture of the season takes place on Saturday afternoon (3pm) as Mark Cooper’s men face Oldham Athletic.
With the Glovers’ relegation fate sealed, the boss has said his side have ‘pride’ to play for in the sides’ remaining fixtures.
The visitors, who after early season struggles now sit in midtable will be quietly winding down their season in preparation for their next National League campaign.
Mark Cooper’s thoughts
Speaking on Friday afternoon, Cooper said; “It’s personal pride for the players now, every time they go out on the pitch they’re getting judged. Whether that’s for potential suitors, or if they’re in or out of contract, it comes down to personal pride.”
The big injury news is that Owen Bevan has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to the injury he sustained against Wrexham on Tuesday night.
Callum Harriott has been missing from training with an injury so he also won’t be involved on Saturday afternoon.
A foot in the opposition camp
This season has been one of transition at Boundary Park, a change of ownership and manager has steadied what was an extremely rocky ship for a number of seasons.
David Unsworth took the reins took the reins in late September last year, and has led Oldham to a relatively uneventful end to the season, which after a number of years of turmoil, fans will be relishing.
They currently sit in 12th place, outside of both play-off and relegation contention, meaning planning for next season will be well and truly underway in the North West.
Have we met before?
Saturday’s game will be the 22nd meeting between the two sides. Earlier this season, Town fell to a 2-0 defeat in Chris Hargreaves penultimate game at the helm.
In total, the Glovers have eight wins against Saturday’s opposition, the most emphatic win came in December 2014, as goals from Stephen Arthurworrey, Simon Gillett, Sam Hoskins and Kieffer Moore secured an emphatic victory in League One.
