7 December 2017 : Darren Way Willing To Consider Gobern Captaincy For A Future Game
Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has said that he would be willing to repeat the experiment of using former Southampton and Huddersfield Town midfielder Oscar Gobern as his captain in a match. Whilst James Bailey is the club's named captain for the 2017-18 season, it was his replacement in the side for the midweek EFL Trophy game against AFC Wimbledon that took the armband, despite it being his first home game for the club.

At 26 years old, Gobern was one of the more experienced players in a side that also saw two other occasional captains in Nathan Smith and Ryan Dickson sit out the evening. As such Gobern got the nod for the evening. Way said that he was impressed enough with the player's performance to consider it again:

"Definitely - I think he had composure. He was unfazed by the situation. I thought his general play and certainly the combination between him and Connor Smith meant that they were always wanting the ball, and always looking to have a forward momentum. At the same time they were picking up first and second balls, percentage-wise. So as a midfield two, I thought they did particularly well. He affected the game up until around 60 or 70 minutes on Tuesday. So yes, we've got a good signing or a good addition. It's just important that he's consistent with it. On Tuesday you could see there was a lot of energy and a lot of forward thinking, which had been our problem certainly at the start of the season. We've asked for more crosses, more shots, more forward runs, and the players are showing that with their energy."

This Saturday sees Yeovil Town return to League football, having played three consecutive cup competition matches over the past fortnight. They will welcome Lincoln City at Huish Park needing to put their league form back on track. Despite having landed three positive results in those cup fixtures recently, the Glovers are currently four games without a win in League Two fixtures. Way denied that was a concern, saying that the club's overall home form was still strong, meaning that he didn't see the picture as a poor one:

"Not at home it's not been, certainly with the results that we've had. We've played higher opposition. We've played AFC Wimbledon, we've played Plymouth, we've played Notts County and we've had a real tough run. By looking at the fixtures, it's going to get even tougher. I think it's sixteen matches in eight weeks. So the loading and the responsibility that the players have got to take is huge. It's a busy Christmas period, and it's going to get even busier when that window opens up in January. All the players have responded, and every day I think their mindset and the experience that they've gained is certainly helping them to develop at a quicker rate."

Yeovil Town will go into the match with three players definitely missing, with right-back Dan Alfei (ankle) and Rhys Browne (ankle) both ruled out whilst Millwall loanee Sid Nelson serves the final match of a three match suspension.

7 December 2017 : EFL Trophy Third Round Ball Numbers And Region Splits
The Football League have provided further detail, regarding the Third Round draw for the EFL Trophy. The teams will be drawn out live on talkSport radio at 12.30p.m. on Friday 8th December, with the last sixteen clubs in the competition finding out who they will play in January 2018.

The draw will be overseen by Lynsey Hipgrave, with Bob Groves and Perry Groves drawing out the balls. As well as broadcasting it live on the radio, the League will then publish the outcome of the draw on their Checkatrade Trophy Twitter account shortly after the conclusion.

The 2017-18 Checkatrade Trophy rules, published in the Football League website, had stated that the Third Round draw would be done on an unregionalised basis. However, in today's communication, they have continued to split the clubs across a North and South Regions, meaning that Yeovil Town will only be able to draw one of seven southern-based clubs.

The League have also provided the ball numbers for the draw. These are as follows with Yeovil Town taking Ball No.8:

Southern Section:
1. Charlton Athletic
2. Chelsea Under-21s
3. Forest Green Rovers
4. Luton Town
5. Oxford United
6. Peterborough United
7. Portsmouth
8. Yeovil Town

Northern Section:
1. Blackpool
2. Bury
3. Fleetwood Town
4. Leicester City Under-21s
5. Lincoln City
6. Oldham Athletic
7. Rochdale
8. Shrewsbury Town

All ties are due to be played during the week commencing January 8th 2018, with Tuesday 9th January the most likely date for clubs to pick. However, because this round happens immediately after the FA Cup Third Round weekend, expect some clubs to work on different scheduling if their FA Cup ties take place on the Sunday.

5 December 2017 : Darren Way Happy To Have Difficult Decisions After Trophy Win
Yeovil Town manager Darren Way paid tribute to two of his players who have recently missed out on game time, after they helped his team into the Third Round of the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night against AFC Wimbledon. Swansea City loanee Keston Davies has had a difficult time at Huish Park, having not started a League match since the start of the season, whilst midfielder Jake Gray was a surprise omission on the weekend when the Glovers took on Port Vale in the FA Cup at Vale Park, with the former Luton Town man not even making the teamsheet.

Both ended up being the goalscorers in the 2-0 win at Huish Park, with Davies scoring his first for the club four minutes after the break, whilst Gray's appearance as a substitute allowed him to wrap up the tie, as he fired home at the near post four minutes before the end of the match. With neither player having played last Saturday, they will be hoping that influences Way's thinking for this weekend's home game against Lincoln City. The Glovers boss repeated his belief that he has a stronger squad than last season, and that moments like that ensured he had difficult decisions to make for the next game:

"I've got difficult decisions to make every week now, and I never had it last year. It's about how players respond. I gain so much respect in the way that Jake responded. You could see that, whether it's ten minutes, you've still got to be able to produce a performance. He looked like he was hungry. I said it in the dressing room. Last year I didn't have a very good squad. I thought it was very weak on the bench. But I think that in these games, everyone now is proving that they deserve to play in the first team. You can see where Santos has come from, because of his cup, and Connor Smith. There's loads of individual performances. Oscar being captain today, I thought his performance was very good as well."

Whilst it took until the 86th minute for Yeovil Town to confirm their route past the Dons, this was a relatively comfortable victory, with the visitors struggling to get into the match during the second half, particularly after they had replaced some of their more experienced players with those from their Academy system. Way though was pleased with the manner in which his team controlled the game:

"It was a fantastic performance from start to finish. I felt that we controlled the game. I thought some of the individual performances and the pattern of play, and some of the combination play, shots we had on target and crosses going into the box, overall as a manager and certainly for the team, it was very pleasing. There were loads of positives to take. I thought the crowd that turned up were brilliant. So we're through to the next round."

5 December 2017 : Yeovil 2 Wimbledon 0 : Davies Grabs Debut Goal As Glovers Reach Third Round
Yeovil Town headed into the Third Round of the EFL Trophy tonight, after a 2-0 victory over League One side AFC Wimbledon. Both goals were scored during the second half, as Swansea City loanee Keston Davies scored his first goal for the club, having converted an Otis Khan corner four minutes after the break. The route into the next round was secured four minutes from the end when substitute Jake Gray's speculative shot went in via the near post, to put the Glovers into the next round.

The Glovers went into the match making five changes to their line-up, with Keston Davies and Bevis Mugabi coming into defence, Connor Smith and Oscar Gobern starting as midfielders, whilst Jordan Green's inclusion allowed Olufela Olomola to move into the front line. In the main though, it was a rotation of the main squad with Ryan Dickson the only senior player to sit the game out entirely from Saturday. AFC Wimbledon also mixed up their starting line-up, but named four youth team players as their only outfield substitutes.

The home side largely dominated the first half, albeit without significantly testing Dons keeper Joe McDonnell. Connor Smith put over the bar from a narrow angle, whilst a wild attempt from Bevis Mugabi was a long distance away. Sam Surridge went far closer and probably should have done better with a free header that went wide. Wimbledon contributed little in an attacking sense, with their main purpose during the first half apparently being them trying to work out what formation they wanted to play - their best effort on goal was a well hit George Francomb effort that Artur Krysiak did well to hold onto.

Yeovil's best chance, and in truth their only proper on target shot, came via one of Tom James's whipped free kicks as he looped it over the wall, with McDonnell doing well to watch the swerve and push it over the crossbar. But all that changed four minutes into the second period when an Otis Khan corner was flicked on by Keston Davies. The ball hit the post with Wimbledon unsuccessful in trying to clear it off the line, for a deserved 1-0 lead.

Wimbledon's response to that was an unorthodox one, as they took off two of their main forward players, in Cody McDonald and Harry Forrester, and replaced them with youth team graduates. Yeovil also made changes, with Francois Zoko and Matt Worthington introduced, whilst Wimbledon were to end the evening with three of their Academy players on the pitch.

The Glovers wrapped the tie up four minutes from time when their final substitute Jake Gray tried a fairly speculative shot that went in via the near post and in for a 2-0 lead. With Wimbledon not even having a second half shot, it was a comfortable victory and route into the second round, albeit in a match watched by only 886 spectators - comfortably Yeovil's lowest crowd for a competitive fixture since they entered the Football League, not helped by the competition's overall profile and reputation over the last eighteen months.

5 December 2017 : Team News For Yeovil Town vs AFC Wimbledon
The starting line-up for Yeovil Town's EFL Trophy Second Round match against AFC Wimbledon at Huish Park has been revealed. The match sees the Glovers name five changes compared to the team that took to the field against Port Vale on Saturday.

Defender Nathan Smith drops out with Keston Davies replacing him, whilst Bevis Mugabi comes in for Ryan Dickson which should mean that Tom James swaps flanks. In midfield Oscar Gobern and Connor Smith replace James Bailey and Alefe Santos. Up front, Jordan Green comes in for Francois Zoko - a question mark over whether Green or Olufela Olomola will play up front.

Millwall loanee Sid Nelson is in the middle of a three game League and FA Cup suspension, following his red card against Notts County, and is eligible to play in tonight's competition due to the different suspension rules, but doesn't make it as far as the squad. Considering he may be still trying to remember players names, midfielder Oscar Gobern is a surprising captain on his home debut.

The first team squad members to miss out today are right-back Daniel Alfei (knee injury, out for season), Rhys Browne (ankle, out until January), midfielder Ryan Dickson (fully fit, but not selected) and Sid Nelson (fully fit, but not selected).

The team reads as follows:

Yeovil Town:
1. Artur Krysiak
5. Bevis Mugabi 17. Omar Sowunmi 6. Keston Davies 23. Tom James
24. Olufela Olomola 8. Connor Smith 20. Oscar Gobern (Capt) 7. Otis Khan
14. Sam Surridge 15. Jordan Green

Substitutes:
12. Jonny Maddison (GK) 3. Nathan Smith 4. Matt Worthington 10. Jake Gray 13. Francois Zoko 16. James Bailey 30. Alefe Santos

AFC Wimbledon:
24 Joe McDonnell
20 Toby Sibbick 6 Paul Robinson 30 Paul Kalambayi
5 Will Nightingale 23 Callum Kennedy 7 George Francomb 8 Nadjim Abdou
11 Harry Forrester 21 Egli Kaja
10 Cody McDonald

Substitutes:
25 Nikola Tzanev 35 Great Nii Okai-Evans 36 Ossama Ashley 37 Osaze Urhoghide 38 Ethan Nelson-Roberts

5 December 2017 : Officials For Yeovil Town vs AFC Wimbledon
Officials for the EFL Trophy Second Round tie between Yeovil Town and AFC Wimbledon have been announced by the Football League. The match takes place on Tuesday 5th December 2017, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off at Huish Park. The man in charge of the fixture will be referee Graham Horwood (Bedfordshire).

We've had Mr Horwood nine times before as a match referee. The first was for the 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in December 2007 at Huish Park. We were more than happy with his first half performance, but felt that the longer the game went on, the more he seemed to be conscious of the match scoreline - booking Yeovil players for apparent time-wasting that had been no worse than offences committed by Brighton players whilst the score had been level, and awarding the Seagulls a series of controversial decisions. As such, he seemed to be getting a little too wrapped up in the game, rather than letting it flow as he had done so during the first period.

The second was the January 2009 1-0 win over Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road. Not the best of games to watch by any stretch of the imagination, but all of that was forgotten when Gavin Tomlin's 94th minute goal sent the away support slightly mad. We managed to recover our composure enough to remember that Mr Horwood had "an excellent game". We were due to have Mr Horwood for a home League One match against Stockport County in September 2009, but by the time everyone got to Huish Park, Mr Horwood had been replaced for an unspecified reason.

Next up was the April 2010 match at Griffin Park that saw Brentford and Yeovil Town share a 1-1 draw. The two teams also shared two highly dubious refereeing decisions. The one that went for us was a penalty that Brentford conceded for a handball that visiting supporters at the other end of the field didn't spot. Gavin Tomlin showed no mercy against his former club. But they do say luck levels itself out, and so it did when Mr Horwood penalised Luke Ayling for an excellent sliding tackle, and Brentford stuck a superb equaliser from the dead ball situation. No damage done to either side, but two wrongs don't make a right.

We were due to have Mr Horwood refereeing our October 2010 home match against Swindon Town but for the second time in being named as a match official for a Yeovil Town match, he was withdrawn and replaced by Mick Russell. He was then named for the December 2010 game against Carlisle United, but that match was called off long before the Cumbrians or Mr Horwood could get near the ground. He finally made it down for the rearranged match in March of that season, and overall had a "tidy" game, but one that was ended early by an injury during the second half, meaning that he had to be 'substituted'.

He headed down to Huish Park for the August 2014 League One match that opened the 2014-15 season against Doncaster Rovers. The 0-3 scoreline had us more concerned about the performance of our defensive line, than of the officials. There was another 0-3 home defeat during the early part of the 2016-7 season, with the September 2016 League Two match against Blackpool on the messy side from our point of view. We had one gripe with him during the match. We'd been a bit lucky that Brad Potts didn't get a penalty when he was tackled inside the box by Matt Butcher. When the referee decided not to take any action a minute later when a Pools defender tried to take Tahvon Campbell's shirt home with him, it was comical that it was not given, and reeked of an official trying to balance out his own error.

In April 2017 as we had him twice in quick succession. The first of these was the 3-1 defeat against Portsmouth at Fratton Park. He managed to come out of the match without raising a single yellow card, although did have one major decision to make. He gave Portsmouth their opening penalty, but it was one that even green'n'white supporters would have nodded along with, as Bevis Mugabi miscontrolled a ball inside his own box, with the end result being a fairly obvious foul on Gary Roberts, which Gareth Evans dispatched. We don't recall too much else that was contentious - most seemed to come down to Pompey's superiority on the day, and the Glovers making one too many formation changes that seemed to upset things a bit at times. He then turned up at Huish Park for the 1-1 draw against Stevenage - as the final home game of the season it was a bit of an end-of-season affair, and that matched his performance, with no bookings again and no obviously dodgy decisions.

We've had him once, so far, during the 2017-18 season. He took charge of the September 2017 match against Grimsby Town at Blundell Park, which we lost 2-1. Again, the booking count was low, with just one caution each. We can only recall him making one big decision, and that was to deny Grimsby a penalty, as Jamille Matt and Sid Nelson tussled for a loose ball that Nelson was trying to shield back to the keeper - it was deemed legal, even if the home fans disagreed.

Mr Horwood will be assisted by Justin Amey (Dorset) and Dean Treleaven (West Sussex). The Fourth Official will be Scott Jackson (Royal Navy).

4 December 2017 : Browne Suffers Injury Blow After Sprained Ankle
Yeovil Town have suffered an injury blow, with the news that winger Rhys Browne will be missing until the New Year. The former Grimsby Town player has missed the last three matches due to an ankle injury that was picked up during the latter stages of the 1-1 draw against Notts County last month.

The club have now indicated that the 22 year old will be out for "four to six weeks" and will miss "at least a month", meaning that he will be absent throughout a December period that sees the club play eight matches throughout the calendar month. He has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and so is not expected to play until January.

4 December 2017 : Christmas Cuddly Toy Collection For Port Vale Replay
Yeovil Town are inviting supporters attending next Tuesday's FA Cup Replay against Port Vale to donate cuddly toys to Yeovil District Hospital. The idea has been inspired from Glovers fans who viewed social media footage from the Charleroi vs Oostende match over the weekend that sought to provide toys for children with disabilities over the Christmas period.

Whilst those toys were thrown into the pitch, Yeovil Town appear to be seeking a slightly more orderly half time collection for the match which will take place on Tuesday 12th December at Huish Park, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off. Any Yeovil Town or Port Vale supporter who brings a cuddly toy to the game can donate during the interval, with the proceeds sent off to the local Hospital.

If you can't make it to the Port Vale game, or want to drop off your donation on a different day, the club will accept donations either via post, or in person, in the lead-up to that date.

3 December 2017 : Replay Date Confirmed For Port Vale FA Cup Tie
Yeovil Town have now absolutely confirmed the date for the FA Cup Second Round Replay against Port Vale. As revealed yesterday, it will take place on Tuesday 12th December, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off at Huish Park. On the night, the fixture will be played to a conclusion, with extra time and penalties if required.

We had wondered if the club might need to hold back on the date, in case BT Sport or the BBC had any interest in screening the replay (unlikely as though that might be). This would tend to suggest the club already know other ties are being earmarked.

The club have yet to confirm the admission prices for this game, but yesterday's Port Vale matchday programme published them as follows:

Adults: 12.00; Over-65s and Young Adults (16-21): 6.00; Juniors (Under-16s): 5.00.

Note - tickets will NOT be on sale from Huish Park at this stage. We'll put up another article once these are available.

3 December 2017 : FA Cup Third Round Schedule And Ball Numbers
The FA Cup Third Round Draw will take place this coming Monday. Whilst Yeovil Town's status in the Third Round is not confirmed, given both themselves and Port Vale can still reach it following yesterday's 1-1 draw at Vale Park, both sides will go into the velvet bag for a draw that will take place live at Slough Town's Holloways Park just prior to their televised match against Rochdale at around 7.10p.m.

Yeovil Town and Port Vale will take Ball No. 49. As with all the FA Cup Round Proper draws, these are unseeded and unregionalised, meaning that you can draw literally anyone. Balls ranging from No.1 to No.44 hold the Premier League and Championship clubs that pretty much everyone will be hoping for. Balls No.45 to No.64 hold the League One and League Two sides and the remaining non-league sides. The balls are as follows:

1. AFC Bournemouth 2. Arsenal 3. Aston Villa 4. Barnsley 5. Birmingham City 6. Bolton Wanderers 7. Brentford 8. Brighton and Hove Albion 9. Bristol City 10. Burnley 11. Burton Albion 12. Cardiff City 13. Chelsea 14. Crystal Palace 15. Derby County 16. Everton 17. Fulham 18. Huddersfield Town 19. Hull City 20. Ipswich Town 21. Leeds United 22. Leicester City 23. Liverpool 24. Manchester City 25. Manchester United 26. Middlesbrough 27. Millwall 28. Newcastle United 29. Norwich City 30. Nottingham Forest 31. Preston North End 32. Queens Park Rangers 33. Reading 34. Sheffield United 35. Sheffield Wednesday 36. Southampton 37. Stoke City 38. Sunderland 39. Swansea City 40. Tottenham Hotspur 41. Watford 42. West Bromwich Albion 43. West Ham United 44. Wolverhampton Wanderers

45. Woking or Peterborough United 46. Milton Keynes Dons 47. Newport County 48. Wycombe Wanderers 49. Port Vale or Yeovil Town 50. Shrewsbury Town 51. Doncaster Rovers 52. Slough Town or Rochdale 53. AFC Wimbledon 54. Stevenage 55. Mansfield Town 56. Luton Town 57. Bradford City 58. Blackburn Rovers or Crewe Alexandra 59. AFC Fylde or Wigan Athletic 60. Gillingham or Carlisle United 61. Notts County 62. Forest Green Rovers 63. Fleetwood Town or Hereford 64. Coventry City.

All Third Round ties will be played across the weekend of January 5th and 8th 2018, with clubs that win their Third Round ties taking 67,500 from the FA Cup Prize Fund.

NOTE: List of teams left in the Third Round draw updated following the Sunday afternoon ties. Charlton Athletic, Boreham Wood, Scunthorpe United, Gateshead, Guiseley, Cambridge United and Leatherhead all exit the competition. Woking, Slough Town (playing Monday), AFC Fylde and Hereford remain as the surviving non-league clubs.

2 December 2017 : Provisional Scheduling And Admission Prices For The Port Vale Replay
Saturday afternoon's matchday programme for the FA Cup Second Round tie between Port Vale and Yeovil Town revealed the arrangements that would be put in place for the Second Round Replay. With a 1-1 draw at Vale Park, the two sides now will need to meet at Huish Park. The Valiants have disclosed that game has been pencilled in to take place on Tuesday 12th December, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off.

They have also disclosed admission prices for the replay, which will be modelled on the same pricing as the original tie, with a few adjustments in place to reflect Huish Park policy for the definition of age groups. This gives the following prices:

Adults: 12.00; Over-65s and Young Adults (16-21): 6.00; Juniors (Under-16s): 5.00.

At present, these replay tickets won't be on sale from the Huish Park Ticket Office, so don't try calling them yet. We also expect that the club will have to wait for BT Sport (and maybe the BBC) to decide which Second Round Replays they want to televise, so they can absolutely confirm that replay date.

However, with five Second Round ties having already been confirmed as needing replays, and ten more Second Round ties due to be played across Sunday and Monday, we can't see BT Sport in a hurry to set their cameras up at Huish Park. Hereford's 1-1 draw with Fleetwood Town that takes their tie back to Edgar Street looks nailed on for coverage, whilst Carlisle United's replay against League One side Gillingham would also give the TV companies a good opportunity to screen a mini-upset. Hence, the above date should be accurate. However, we'll confirm it once it is officially known and tickets are on sale.

2 December 2017 : Darren Way: Port Vale Draw Evokes Memories Of Accrington Cup Tie
Yeovil Town manager Darren Way compared this afternoon's 1-1 draw against Port Vale at Vale Park, with the club's 2014-15 result against Accrington Stanley at the same stage of the competition three years ago. The Glovers were somewhat fortuitious to still be in the hat, needing an 89th minute equalising goal from Jordan Green to send them back home with the prospect of a replay, but with that giving them a similar scenario to the one that ultimately saw them play Manchester United in an FA Cup Third Round tie in January 2015.

Back in 2014, it was actually Accrington that forced the equalising goal at the Crown Ground, only for the Lancashire side to fall in the Second Round replay. On this occasion, it was the Glovers that rescued the tie, after Tom Pope had given the Valiants the lead. Despite his side remaining behind up until the penultimate minute, Way claimed that there was only going to be one side that won the match, in the way his side finished the game:

"I think it was very important in the way we finished the game. I think that towards the end, there was only going to be one winner. For Jordan to take his goal, the players are absolutely over the moon. So to be in the hat, we've been in this situation before where we played Accrington away, and we thought that perhaps it could have been a disappointing result, and then we had the Man United tie. So we'll wait and see who we get."

Like Tuesday night's EFL Trophy Group game against Plymouth Argyle, it was two substitutes that helped fashion the equaliser. New signing Oscar Gobern put the vital cross into the box, and after Vale failed to clear their lines, it was Jordan Green that got the final touch to keep Yeovil Town in the FA Cup for another day. Way unsurprisingly highlighted those two substitutes for their role:

"I thought the substitutions made a real impact. I thought Oscar came on and affected the game, and with Jordan Green, say no more. So I'm really pleased for the players, because the players have been showing real commitment. We're working extremely hard behind the scenes, and that was the just rewards. I would say that one or two passes were a little bit anxious and a little bit nervy. But that's football, and some of my players grew in confidence as the game went on, and again the fighting spirit and never giving up, and certainly with the consequences and what's on the end of it."

Overall, the home side created the greater number of chances, with Tom Pope scoring his fourth goal against Yeovil Town in four matches, to give the Valiants a deserved lead. At times, the match seemed to be slipping away from Yeovil, but Way said he wasn't disappointed with his side's performance, even if he was frustrated that Pope's goal was a carbon copy of the one he scored in the September League Two match at Huish Park:

"We could be disappointed, but it's away from home. To come away, we were disappointed with the goal, as the goal was exactly the same was what they scored at home (at Huish Park). Exactly the same. So it's not like we've not worked on that. So that was disappointing to draw again away from home. For the players to put in that fighting spirit towards the end, the players deserved that."

2 December 2017 : Port Vale 1 Yeovil 1 : Late Green Strike Keeps Glovers In The Cup
Yeovil Town gained a late equalising goal to take themselves into the FA Cup Third Round draw, after former AFC Bournemouth attacker Jordan Green scored his first goal for the club. Whilst it was not the most convincing of Glovers performances, they stayed in the competition with a 1-1 draw after Oscar Gobern's cross into the box wasn't cleared at the tail end of the gamem, meaning that Port Vale will have to travel down to Huish Park for a midweek replay in around ten days time. The home side had taken a deserved lead through a Tom Pope header, and looked good value for that throughout the game, but couldn't dig the ball out when they needed to, and the Glovers got a late bit of drama to keep themselves in the competition.

The Glovers went into the match making two changes to their starting line-up, compared to their last league fixture. Otis Khan's illness had cleared up in midweek and he came into the side ahead of Jordan Green. The other change from the match at Wycombe saw Alefe Santos come in for Matt Worthington. New signing Oscar Gobern sat on the bench, meaning that there was no room for Jake Gray on the teamsheet. Vale's side lacked former loanee Ben Whitfield, who is currently recovering from injury.

The first half saw both sides struggle to seriously test the keepers - an Omar Sowunmi header that tamely went into Ryan Boot's arms from a Tom James free kick, was sort of a chance, but not one that worried the home keeper. The visitors were creating rather more, although suffered from their inability to get shots on target. Gavin Gunning's header hit the side netting from a David Worrall free kick, seeing a few Vale fans cheer, but it had hit the outside of the goal instead.

Both sides were guilty of misplaced passes during the first half, leading to home fans in particular being vocally critical of their side - even when they did complete passes they were often sideways or backwards. Gradually though, they managed to provide a bit more creativity, as a Gavin Gunning cross was met by a Tom Pope header that went wide. Cristian Montano then shot wide and headed wide. Right on half time, another Pope header from a Gunning cross was blocked by a defender on the back post, and although Artur Krysiak hadn't had much to do, it was obvious which side had the greater chances.

Port Vale made a double substitution at half time, along with a formation change, switching to a 3-5-2 and that put them immediately on the front foot. Antony Kay put over the crosbar, whilst Anton Forrester's header went into the arms of Krysiak. Then Omar Sowunmi managed to get a boot on a Michael Tonge shot to take the sting out of it. Tom Pope's shot was blocked after Tyler Denton broke through and squared it to him, whilst there was another nervy moment when Krysiak spilt a cross, and Forrester's attempt to convert the loose ball failed.

Yeovil had barely threatened, but on the hour mark they did fashion their best chance of the match when Sam Surridge set up Otis Khan, with a defender's block for a corner, stopping Khan from getting an unexpected goal. But that was to be a false dawn. Substitute Tyler Denton's cross into the box 63 minutes into the match found the head of Tom Pope, and once again the big target man scored against the Glovers to put the home side 1-0 up.

A double substitution shortly after the goal saw Jordan Green and Oscar Gobern introduced for Otis Khan and James Bailey, with Ryan Dickson taking over the captaincy. But still Yeovil struggled to create any chances of note, with Marcus Harness and Anton Forrester putting wide of the target as Port Vale looked the most likely to score.

But on 89 minutes, Yeovil finally tested home keeper Ryan Boot with a Tom James shot, and less than a minute later, they'd managed to unexpectedly grab an equalising goal, with two substitutes combining. Oscar Gobern's cross into the box bounced around in the area without being properly cleared, and Jordan Green was on hand to put the ball in the net just before the game entered four minutes of added time. In truth, on the balance of play it wasn't deserved, but cup games are often about hanging in there, and suddenly with home advantage to count in the replay, Yeovil Town got themselves a lifeline where they didn't expect one, and will take their place in the Third Round draw.

2 December 2017 : Team News For Port Vale vs Yeovil Town
The starting line-up for Yeovil Town's FA Cup Second Round match against Port Vale at Vale Park has been revealed. The match sees the Glovers name two changes compared to the team that took to the field against Wycombe Wanderers last Saturday. Winger Otis Khan had been out through illness last weekend, but had returned for Tuesday's midweeker against Plymouth Argyle - unsurprisingly he starts with Jordan Green dropping to the bench.

AFC Bournemouth loanee Matt Worthington had been a starter at Adams Park, but was left out of Tuesday night's squad. He gets as far as the bench today, but his starting position is taken by Alefe Santos.

Millwall loanee Sid Nelson serves the second match of a three game suspension, following his red card against Notts County. The first team squad members to miss out today are right-back Daniel Alfei (knee injury, out for season), Sid Nelson (suspension), Rhys Browne (ankle) and midfielder Jake Gray (fully fit, but not selected).

The team reads as follows:

Yeovil Town:
1. Artur Krysiak
23. Tom James 17. Omar Sowunmi 3. Nathan Smith 11. Ryan Dickson
24. Olufela Olomola 30. Alefe Santos 16. James Bailey (Capt) 7. Otis Khan
14. Sam Surridge 13. Francois Zoko

Substitutes:
12. Jonny Maddison (GK) 4. Matt Worthington 5. Bevis Mugabi 6. Keston Davies 8. Connor Smith 15. Jordan Green 20. Oscar Gobern

Port Vale:
23 Ryan Boot
21 James Gibbons 4 Tom Anderson 24 Nathan Smith 33 Gavin Gunning
10 David Worrall 32 Michael Tonge 11 Cristian Montano
6 Antony Kay 8 Danny Pugh
9 Tom Pope

Substitutes:
3 Tyler Denton 7 Marcus Myers-Harness 12 Sam Hornby 14 Tyrone Barnett 15 Anton Forrester 18 William Reeves 19 Dan Turner

2 December 2017 : Ticketing For Morecambe vs Yeovil Town
Advance tickets for the League Two match between Port Vale and Yeovil Town are now available from the Huish Park Ticket Office. The match takes place on Friday 29th December 2017, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off at the Globe Arena. This was a change from the originally published fixture list, which now means that Glovers fans face the dreaded Friday night on the M6, coupled with a 558 mile round trip in the middle of the Christmas holidays.

For those making the trip, the Admission Prices are as follows:

Adults (Aged 23-64): 21.00; Seniors (65 and Over): 17.00; Young Adult (18-22) and Students: 15.00; Under-18s: 6.00; Under-11s: FREE.

Morecambe indicate that all Under-14s must be accompanied by a responsible adult, although given the length of the journey and it being a night game, we'd hope that would be the case anyway!

The Under-11 offer applies only when one Under-11 ticket is purchased at the same time as an Adult/Senior ticket - any additional Under-11s would pay the Under-18 rate, unless you have more than one Adult/Senior ticket being purchased.

Disabled supporters pay the relevant age bracket with an assistant ticket free of charge, provided they are on the Middle or Higher level of Disability Living Allowance. For disabled and personal assistant tickets please call 01935 847 888, as these won't be available online.

Expectations are that we will be housed in the Peter McGuigan Stand, blocks A and B. This is Morecambe's main stand and runs along the side of the pitch. The overall capacity of this stand is 2,173 - we get two out of the five blocks, so around 40 percent of the capacity. There is a terrace section, but they've not opened it on our last two visits, and with this being a night game with a lower attendance inevitable, this seems even less likely.

1 December 2017 : Officials For Port Vale vs Yeovil Town
Officials for the FA Cup Second Round tie between Port Vale and Yeovil Town have been announced by the Football League. The match takes place on Saturday 2nd December 2017, with a 3.00p.m. kick-off at Vale Park. The man in charge of the fixture will be referee Scott Oldham (Lancashire).

He is a new official on the circuit, having been promoted to Football League level in the summer of 2017. So far, he's taken charge of 18 matches, giving out 44 yellow cards and two red cards. He's already been to Vale Park this season, with the October 14th game against Cheltenham Town ending up with a 3-1 home win, and a booking-free encounter. He was involved in one Yeovil Town fixture this season, acting as the Fourth Official in the November 2017 4-0 defeat against Carlisle United at Brunton Park.

He comes from Poulton - a town on the Fylde coast near Blackpool, and is 35 years old. He is a self-employed joiner, whose father Barry Oldham was a Football League assistant referee. Just prior to his promotion to the League, he was given the Premier League 2 final between Swansea City Under-23s and Reading Under-23s, as well as the National League play-off second leg between Tranmere Rovers and Aldershot.

Mr Oldham will be assisted by Richard Wigglesworth (South Yorkshire) and Andrew Hendley (West Midlands). The Fourth Official will be Peter Wright (Liverpool).

1 December 2017 : Gobern Deal Now Fully Completed
Yeovil Town have now fully confirmed the signing of former Southampton and Huddersfield Town midfielder Oscar Gobern. The 26 year old has agreed terms with the Glovers, and will wear the No.20 shirt whilst he is with us. The club describe his deal as "on non-contract terms until the end of the 2017-18 season" - we're not sure what that means in practice, given the two parts of that appear to contradict each other.

He has been training with the club for the last three weeks, and whilst his primary position is in midfield, he is a left-footed player who has also deputised as a left-back. For a full profile on Oscar, see yesterday's news item linked below.
