Defender previews return to Huish Park on Saturday

Lewis Young has a soft spot for our next opponents Yeovil but that won’t get in the way of his and Reds prime objective at Huish Park on Saturday.


Lewis spent 15 months in Somerset and played 17 games for the club in 2013 as they won promotion to the Championship.

Lewis is confident his old club can climb away from trouble – but he’s determined any revival doesn’t start this weekend.


“My spell there was a massive part of my career,” said Lewis. “Our little boy was born there and it’s a place that will always hold a big place in my heart.


“To get promotion to the Championship that season with the small squad we had was an unbelievable achievement.


“They have struggled since and none of the lads I played with are still there – they have had a big churn of players.


“But I worked with (manager) Darren Way and (coach) Terry Skiverton when I was there and they are both Yeovil through and through, they realty buy into the ethos of the club.


“There has been an upturn in their results in recent weeks. By all accounts they were lucky to be knocked out of the FA Cup by Carlisle on Tuesday.


“Darren Ward and Ryan Dickson, who were with us last season, have added experience to their back four and Darren will have them fired up. 


"We know it’s going to be a tough game but we’re determined to improve our away form between now and the end of the season.”
