The Big Match Preview - Yeovil Town

24 November 2015

All you need to know about the trip to Huish Park tonight (k.o. 7.45pm).

Yeovil Town vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 24th November 2015, k.o. 7.45pm
Huish Park
Referee: Darren Deadman

The ever-optimistic approach of the Wanderers squad means they'll head into tonight's game at Huish Park pleased with their hard-fought point at AFC Wimbledon at the weekend, rather than rueing the late goal which denied them the victory.

Back-to-back away games have taken the Chairboys to two grounds where they've never won in the Football League, but they'll be favourites to end that run in Somerset against a Glovers side who haven't won in the league for two months.

However, that doesn't quite tell the full story, as they've enjoyed a fruitful and unbeaten November having made progress in both the FA Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy, as well as recording draws against Stevenage and Newport.

Boss Paul Sturrock handed a debut to new signing Francois Zoko at the weekend and the striker is expected to start once again, with the Glovers looking to build momentum with a settled side in the build-up to Christmas.

As for Wycombe, Gareth Ainsworth will be without Joe Jacobson and Marcus Bean until the New Year but will hope to have Stephen McGinn and Gozie Ugwu available again after the pair missed the draw at Wimbledon through injury.

Anthony Stewart came through unscathed from his first league appearance in three months while Garry Thompson will be looking to mark his 35th birthday in style up front.

Wanderers have been given an allocation of 340 tickets (all-seated) in the Screwfix Community Stand in one corner of the stadium.

Facilities for away fans
The stadium capacity is 9,665 with seating for 5,212. Away fans are situated in the Copse Road open terrace at one end of the ground. This is uncovered, so hope for a dry day! Additionally seats are allocated to away fans in Blocks P & PP in the Screwfix Community Stand, which is covered.

Facilities around the ground
The nearest hostelries are all a 10-15 min walk from the ground. There is ‘The Arrow’ and ‘The Airfield Tavern’ (formerly called ‘Brewsters’) ‘The Arrow’ comes recommended and also serves food. To find this pub, from the ground car park, walk back up the road past the ground to the top and turn right. At the end of this road, turn left onto the main road and after a short distance take the first right. Go straight down this road through the new looking residential area and after about ten minutes of walking, you will see a clearing on your right and just beyond this there are some shops and the Arrow pub in the middle.
