Well it’s nearly upon us! The most important 180 minutes of the whole season. The prize is the mouth watering prospect of a Wembley Final and who knows a place in the Championship.
But first the Glovers need to overturn Sheffield United over two legs. The Blades have not been in the best of form lately winning only one game in April.
Clubs like Sheffield United don’t stay in the doldrums for long and we are sure Gary Johnson will not be fooled by those results.
In front of a huge crowd at Bramall Lane the home side can be expected to be well up for the fight and Yeovil can expect to have their hands full.
Sitting three points behind Yeovil in the League on 74 points and with only a one goal deficit in goal difference there is little to choose between the teams.
With that in mind injuries to top players could play a big part and to that end both teams have worries.
For the Blades Tony McMahon and Jonathan Forte are doubts while Yeovil have huge question marks over skipper Jamie McAllister (ankle), Byron Webster (hamstring) and Dan Burn (ankle ligaments) with all three having missed the last few games.
But with Golden Boot winner Paddy Madden itching to add to his total of goals Yeovil will be in good heart, even if the defenders are missing, and with James Hayter along side Paddy Madden and having scored 16 goals they can go into the match with no lack of goal scoring options in the side.
With the second leg of the tie scheduled for Monday both camps will be praying they don’t suffer any further injury problems as recovery time is at a minimum.
With over 1,000 supporters travelling to Sheffield to support The Glovers Gary Johnson and his team will be all out come home with a victory to set up a thrilling prospect at Huish Park.
So show your colours and sing your hearts out for the lads. Make no mistake they do appreciate it.
Tickets for Yeovil Town fans can now be purchased from Bramall Lane from 6.30pm on Friday, where they will only be accepting cash payments.
