TEAM NEWS

Joe McNerney (knee) and Jimmy Smith (foot) are both missing for the Reds. Lanre Oyebanjo is unlikely to be back until mid-February as he gains match fitness following knee surgery.

Marc Laird, Kevin Dawson and Simon Gillett could return for Darren Way's side but Darren Ward, the former Crawley defender, is a doubt. Alex Lacey is suspended following his red card in Tuesday's FA Cup tie.

 

THE FORM GUIDE                

Whilst the Reds' home form has been formidable their away record seems to have suffered as a result, and we have not won on our travels since the 2-1 victory over Hartlepool in October. Mark Yates brings his side to Huish Park off the back of a 1-0 loss to Notts County at the weekend.

Darren Way has struggled to turn fortunes around for the Glovers, with just one win since his appointment in December, and they currently sit 23rd in the league and are the second lowest scorers in the league. 

The Glovers went out of the FA Cup on penalties to Carlisle in midweek but they did won 1-0 at the Checkatrade.com Stadium back in September.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "I was at their game on Tuesday and for an hour they dominated Carlisle, who I think are one of the best teams in the division. They are probably in a false position but we will go there in the belief that we can get a result."Mark Yates


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

Yeovil Town were regular opponents during our League One years, and we have played them on six previous occasions. Our only win against the Glovers came last season with two debut goals from Marvin Elliot sealing a 2-0 victory. The Reds are yet to win at Huish Park and have only claimed a draw from three previous meetings including an FA Cup defeat in November 2014.
