When Woking come to Huish Park, it means a number of familiar faces will be back at Yeovil Town this weekend.

Darren Sarll and his Cardinals side, boasting multiple former Glovers will be a stern test for the Glovers, with Woking sitting third in the National League table.

In a match wrapped with multiple storylines following the arrival of SU Glovers, it sets up to be a thrilling encounter at Huish Park.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

The match features the return of former Glovers manager Darren Sarll, something Cooper referred to in his press conference.

“I’m sure Darren is looking forward to coming back. He was here for a while and he’s done a fantastic job at Woking.

“He’s a good guy and I’m looking forward to seeing him.

“We have to try and get three points, he understands that, it’s for our cause, and they are for theirs.”

Team news

The Glovers remain without Jack Clarke who is still on the treatment table along with Charlie Wakefield & Max Hunt.

However, the Glovers were bolstered late on Friday afternoon after the signing of Jordan Stevens from Barrow. The versatile winger penned an 18-month deal at Huish Park, and subject to the correct clearances, is available tomorrow.

A foot in the opposition camp

It goes without saying who occupies the Woking dugout. Darren Sarll controversially departed Huish Park almost 12 months ago and has now led the Cardinals to third place in the National League.

Amongst his camp is a number of former Glovers. Former Town captain Luke Wilkinson is part of the Cards’ defence along with Dan Moss who spent the first six months of last season on loan at Huish Park. Rohan Ince, another former Glover, occupies the midfield in Sarll’s side whilst Rhys Browne leads the line, though he is suspended for Saturday’s game.

Have we met before?

Last season, the Glovers won all three fixtures against the Cardinals. 

The first came in National League action as goals from Charlie Wakefield and Tom Knowles secured victory. In December, the Glovers advanced in the FA Trophy, with Knowles amongst the goals once again alongside a double from Adi Yussuf. Wakefield was then the talisman as his goal secured three points for the Glovers in our last trip to Woking. 

However, when Town travelled to the Laithwaite Community Stadium earlier this season, a late Padraig Amond strike separated the two sides.

In truth, the Glovers have a strong record against the Cards since dropping back into the National League, losing just twice.

What’s on at Huish Park

It’s a momentous day at Huish Park as Saturday presents the first opportunity to see Matt Uggla and Paul Sackey’s Yeovil Town after they were unveiled as the team behind SU Glovers in Thursday’s media interviews.

As ever, the Alec Stock Lounge will be open showing the early Premier League kick off between Manchester City and Newcastle United.
