Kinseley In Charge At Yeovil

29 January 2018

Town take on 21st placed Yeovil Town on Tuesday night and they are looking to take heart from the last two solid performances. 

Russell Slade has several injury concerns ahead of the clash against The Glovers.

The Town management team are assessing the situation but there are likely to be several changes at Huish Park.

Slade watched the Glovers in action against Manchester United on Friday night and was impressed with Darren Way’s side after seeing them keep the Premiership side at bay until just before the interval.

Speaking to gtfc.co.uk, he said: “I thought they started really, really well and me and Wilko (Paul Wilkinson) were really impressed with their start. The first goal was key on the night. 

"There were difficult conditions for both sides on the night."

Who do we need to look out for on Tuesday night?

“Zoko is always a threat, he, of course, scored against us earlier in the season. Khan, who is probably one of their more consistent players, is suspended. They’ve strengthened their side recently with the editions of Seager, a striker on loan from Southampton and also Fisher from Motherwell.”

Have they changed much since we played them in September?

“They’ve changed their shape about and they’ve gone and got a few more players in.”

Yeovil's Team News

Striker Alex Fisher made his debut off the bench in their FA Cup defeat to Manchester United on Friday night and could be pushing for a start after arriving from Motherwell. Fellow frontman Ryan Seager joined from Southampton on loan for the rest of the season, while defender Shaun Donnellan arrives in Somerset on a permanent deal from West Brom. Midfielder Otis Khan is unvailable through suspension.

What positives do you take from your last two performances?

“They’ve been quite strong performances, in terms of being on the ball. We’ve been in control for large periods in those games, we keep knocking on the door. If we keep doing that eventually our luck will turn.”

How are you preparing for the game?

“It’s been a long day (Monday),” Slade said. “We set off early this morning, trained at Aston Villa and we are now heading for our hotel in Dorchester.”

Grimsby Town 2-1 Yeovil Town

Danny Collins opened the scoring for the Mariners after a goalkeeping error from a corner, before Francois Zoko equalised as Yeovil threatened for the first time in the game.

But the Mariners continued to be the better of the two sides and they got themselves ahead again through substitute Scott Vernon's second-half header, which proved to be the winning goal.
