FIVE POINT PREVIEW | Yeovil Town

Things to keep in mind for Saturday's game with the Glovers at the Checkatrade Stadium

31 August 2017

Here's five things we think you should keep a look out for the visit of Yeovil on Saturday...

1. Goal fest?

We could be in for a hatful of goals at the Checkatrade Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and here’s why.

In just four league games, Yeovil have scored 10 goals and conceded 14!

The Reds managed to bag three away to Swindon last weekend as well, so if those stats are anything to go by we could be set for a high scoring match!

2. Back to back league wins for the first time since January?

The Reds have the chance to achieve back to back league wins for the first time in just under seven months on Saturday.

The last time Crawley managed two on the trot was ironically when we beat Yeovil Town 2-0 at home on the 2nd January, and then Hartlepool Town 1-0, just 12 days later.

There was also a 3-1 win over Whitehawk in the Senior Sussex Cup in between those two games.

3. On-song Olomola.

The Southampton-loanee has started his Yeovil Town career in blistering form, hitting four goals in his first four league appearances.

The front-man bagged a brace in their first home game of the season, as the Glovers overcame Accrington Stanley 3-2.

Olomola then opened the scoring in Yeovil’s dramatic 4-3 loss away to Forest Green, before sealing the victory last weekend in their 2-0 win at home to Coventry.

4. No grip on the road for the Glovers?

Darren Way’s men may be unbeaten at home so far this season, but their away form is a slight cause for concern.

Yeovil haven’t won away in the league since the 11th March, when they beat Morecambe 3-1.

In fact, since the beginning of last season they’ve won only three league games away from Huish Park.

5. Kettle to ensure things don’t boil over.

Trevor Kettle is set to take charge of this weekend’s game, and both sides will need to be wary in the tackle.

In just five games this season, the referee has already given out 19 yellows and one red card.
