Yeovil v Huddersfield

Yeovil v Huddersfield
Although Yeovil have nine points less than us, and occupy 13th place in the table, their recent form is upsides ours. In the last eight matches they have picked up 13 points compared with our 14. The bookies have us evenly matched, you can get 6/4 about both of us.

The last time we went to Huish Park, in October 2003, we lost 2-1 although we did win the return, 3-1, later in the season. As far as I am aware, although I stand to be corrected, those are the only two games we have ever played against the Glovers who only achieved League status after winning the Conference in the 2002-2003 season . Their progress upwards has been rapid!

It looks as if we will have the same squad available as for our last couple of games. Good news is that Tosh, Adnam Ahmed and Lee Fowler are back in full training although the latter is almost certainly heading to Scarborough. Chris Brandon is currently on the treatment table and seems unlikely to make it. I have read that Jacko is keen for Andy Holdsworth to attack more which may give us a bit more punch than in the last few matches. Andy has impressed by netting twice in recent matches

Steve Thompson, the Yeovil Manager, was a Sky pundit when we played Bradford and was impressed with what he saw. I imagine he will have planned hard for Saturday?s meeting. He has virtually a full squad to work with although Efe has been injured recently but may make it onto the bench. Phil Jeavons, Yeovil?s striker, was the League 1 Powerade Player of The Month in October. The Green and Whites recently signed up 18yo Chris Cohen from West Ham, on a month?s loan, to strengthen their midfield.

Kick off for this game is 2pm, not 3pm.
