After almost a month of waiting, Yeovil Town are finally back in action at Huish Park against Wealdstone on Tuesday evening (7:45pm).

Off the back of a strong victory over Dagenham on Saturday afternoon, the Glovers will be hoping to extend their unbeaten home league run to six games.

Wealdstone, who lost last time out to Gateshead, now travel to Somerset, looking to swing results back in their favour.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Speaking after Saturday’s win against Dagenham, Mark Cooper insisted his side were just focused on the next match; “I think it’s important we don’t get too bogged down with that (the table). We just need to look at what we’ve done and move onto Tuesday.

“I think you can look too much into it, we just need to concentrate on what we’re doing. If we keep playing with that sort of quality and intensity, we’ll pick up some points.”

Team news

Yeovil Town will certainly be without Jamie Reckord, who has a two-match ban due to picking up his tenth yellow card of the season.

Having not played for two weeks, there will have been some sore legs after Saturday’s game, however no injuries have been confirmed by Cooper.

A foot in the opposition camp

Wealdstone are a side defying expectations. One of the few remaining part-time teams in the division, yet the Stones sit 10th in the National League. 

At the helm in West London is Stuart Maynard. Formerly the assistant when Wealdstone were promoted from the National League South in 2020, he made the move to manager following the departure of Dean Brennan, who is now manager of rivals Barnet. 

Amongst the Wealdstone camp is former Glover, Olufela Olomola. The forward has enjoyed a number of loan spells with the Glovers and now leads the line for the Ruislip based outfit. 

Have we met before?

Since their promotion to the National League after 32-years away, the two sides have met five times, with both sides winning once along with three draws. 

Earlier this season, Malachi Linton missed a penalty in a 0-0 draw at the Vale. 

The first game was a thrilling 2-2 draw at Huish Park, with former interim manager Charlie Lee on the scoresheet and current Yeovil winger Charlie Wakefield starting for the Stones. Later that season, the Glovers were the 2-0 victors at the Vale.

Last season, the Glovers fell to a 2-1 defeat at the Vale, before a goalless draw at Huish Park.
