Yeovil Town have published their starting line-up for their final pre-season friendly before the 2012-13 season begins. As expected they've chosen their strongest available line-up for the visit of Exeter City, with Rohan Ince (shin) and Gavin Williams (calf) still missing.
The line-up reads as follows:
1. Marek Stech 2. Luke Ayling 3. Jamie McAllister 4. Richard Hinds 5. Byron Webster 6. Dominic Blizzard 8. Ed Upson 9. James Hayter 11. Reuben Reid 14. Sam Foley 19. Gozie Ugwu
7. Keanu Marsh-Brown 12. Gareth Stewart 15. Lewis Young 16. Nathan Ralph 20. Curtis Haynes-Brown 18. Will Agbo 21. Charlie Ware 22. Liam MacDevitt 23. Mitch Brundle
1. Artur Krysiak 4. Scot Bennett 5. Pat Baldwin 6. Danny Coles 7. Liam Sercombe 10. Alan Gow 11. Arron Davies 14. Tommy Doherty 16. Kevin Amankwaah 19. John O'Flynn 25. Jordan Moore-Taylor
12. Jamie Cureton 18. Elliott Frear 21. Guyillem Bauza 22. Jimmy Keohane 23. Aaron Dawson 26. Jordan Tillson 27. Jacob Kane 31. Elliott Chamberlain GK. Rhys Evans
The final four players on the Yeovil bench are from Yeovil Town's Under-18s side, and all played in their season opener at Alvington this morning, and so could be on for their second match of the day.
Speaking ahead of the game, manager Gary Johnson has told the Western Morning News that he is hoping that his requests to shorten the grass on the Huish Park main pitch will have been carried out, having previously raised concerns about both the quality of the surface and the length of the grass:
"I am looking forward to a nice, sharp football match, which we will get against Exeter, so long as the surface is right – that is the only way we will get a fast, sharp football match. If that is right then we will have a match between two teams that will play the right way and it will be a good test for us. Otherwise we will have to lump it into the corners because the ball won’t be rolling properly."
In terms of Ince and Williams, Johnson has ruled out both from playing in Tuesday night's match against Colchester United, but hasn't entirely ruled out both from being available for next Saturday's League One against Coventry City just yet, although with both having missed plenty of recent training sessions, it seems that the substitutes bench is the most they can hope for.
