12 February 2013 : Stech Waiting Game Goes On
Yeovil Town supporters will have to play the waiting game for possibly one last time tonight, as they wait to see if goalkeeper Marek Stech will keep up his run of playing in every competitive match this season. The Czech Republic keeper has not missed a minute of the 2012-13 season, but that statistic has been threatened over the last three fixtures due to the imminent birth of his partner Louise's baby which has left his team selection in the balance.

Standing by is Goalkeeping Coach and Reserve Goalkeeper Gareth Stewart who would step in if Stech ends up getting diverted to hospital. Speaking to BBC Somerset, manager Gary Johnson says he wouldn't have any qualms about sticking him in goal, but is hopeful this may be the last time they need to go through this:

"I've got every faith in Gareth anyway, to be honest with you. But I'd like to keep the same team as it goes. With a bit of luck the little 'un will hang on a little while longer. I think she's (Stech's partner Louise) has got a date on Wednesday, in that if it's not there yet, then they'll bring it along. Hopefully by that time, she can look at the paper and see us with three more points."

The Glovers go into tonight's League One game at Huish Park against Preston North End on the back of six straight wins at League One level. Having endured a frustratingly inconsistent first half to the 2012-13 season, Johnson feels the secret of their success is that of persistence and giving the players the information they need to succeed:

"It's always down to hard work. It's down to doing the right things. It's passing on information and people taking on information, and it's getting a group of lads that are up for it. They're showing that desire and our supporters are showing that desire. Everyone is showing that belief as well as if to say 'hold on a minute we're quite close to where we want to be'. It gets a bit exciting from this point onwards."
