Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson is hoping that a personal midweek scouting trip will give him good knowledge to take into this afternoon's match at Hillsborough. The Glovers boss travelled with assistant manager Terry Skiverton to see Sheffield Wednesday's away match against Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday night as an opportunity to view how the Owls would play first hand.
The end result between the two promotion chasing sides was a somewhat odd 1-1 draw, with Wednesday goalkeeper Stephen Bywater 'scoring' the goal for Milton Keynes, whilst the Owls got their goal through home defender Gary MacKenzie as both sides put through their own net and ended up sharing the points.
That lifted Wednesday into third spot in the League One table ahead of today's game. Speaking to BBC Somerset, Johnson felt that one of their strengths was that they were a well-organised side with a clear game plan:
"They've got a very very good squad. Me and Terry (Skiverton) drove up in the batmobile to Milton Keynes, to watch Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday, and they looked a real strong unit. You've got to earn a result against them. Sheffield Wednesday have got their game plan. They all know exactly what they're doing. They've brought players in that can play that game plan. You've got to be ready for it. Hopefully we will be, because we've seen it first hand, and we'll see how we cope with it."
