Preview: Yeovil Town v Bristol City

Yeovil Town v Bristol City
Huish Park
Tuesday, March 3rd, 7.45pm

Bristol City will be bringing a huge travelling contingent with them on Tuesday evening as they take on Yeovil Town.

YEOVIL TOWN
It took Yeovil 108 years to enter the Football League, being promoted as Conference champions in 2003. They’ve climbed the ladder, enjoying a one-season stint in the Championship last term. With a capacity of less than 10,000 and a budget well adrift of others at that level, the Glovers battled hard before succumbing to relegation two games from the end of the season. They find themselves in a similar situation this season as they currently sit rock bottom in League One.

MANAGER
Terry Skiverton – Currently acting as first team manager after Gary Johnson was relieved of his duties in the first week of February. Formerly of Chelsea youth, Skiverton made over 300 appearances at Huish Park and is now in his second spell as the club’s chief. He stepped down from the role in 2012 when Johnson was appointed, and went back to being his understudy.

STAR MAN
Joe Edwards – City Academy product who enjoyed loan spells at Bath City and Stockport County before turning his second of two temporary spells at Yeovil permanent in 2013. Can operate at right-back or central midfield. Appointed captain in the summer.

OFFICIALS
Andy Woolmer will be the man in charge, assisted by Brian Durie and Adrian Tranter. The fourth official will be William Bull.

TICKETS
The away end is completely sold out.

LAST TIME OUT
City 2-1 Yeovil Town – Matt Smith’s first goal in his loan spell and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’ penalty helped City to three points on Boxing Day. Ben Nugent scored from long range for the Glovers to reduce the deficit but City hung on for the victory.

LAST SEASON
Championship: 24th (relegated)
FA Cup: Fourth round (lost to Southampton)
Capital One Cup: Second round (lost to Birmingham City)
Johnstone’s Paint Trophy: N/A

DID YOU KNOW?
Yeovil’s home ground is Huish Park, built in 1990 on the site of an old army camp and named after their former home, Huish, itself known for its pitch, which had an 8 feet (2.4 m) sideline to sideline slope.
