Yeovil Town vs Wealdstone
Huish Park Stadium
Tuesday 7th October, 7:45pm kick-off
This fixture will be played behind closed doors.
HOW TO WATCH
Yeovil Town will be streaming the game LIVE on their official YouTube Channel, free of charge.
We will be screening the game live in the Ruislip Social Club, visit HERE to buy a ticket which includes a free drink. The bar will be open from 6pm.
Wealdstone won their first ever National League South title on points-per-game in June and will compete in their first National League fixture since 1988. Yeovil have not hosted the Stones in over 30 years and will look to build on an unlucky draw at King’s Lynn Town on Saturday.
Alex Dyer will not be available for selection as he awaits international clearance before being allowed to play for the Stones. Connor Stevens is unlikely to feature due to injury and Kundai Benyu is 50/50 to be available after suffering a small tweak.
WHAT WAS SAID?
Dean Brennan: “We watched them live on Saturday and again on Sunday, they’re a very experienced side. They are one of the favourites to be promoted from the division this season.”
Darren Sarll: “For us, it’s about reattaching bones and ligaments to get going again on Tuesday. It will be an intense few days leading up to the Wealdstone game.”
WHO TO WATCH FOR
Rhys Murphy: 29-year-old striker Murphy was the standout player in Yeovil’s play-off berth last season. His first season at Huish Park was a successful one with 17 National League goals and after following on from a free-scoring season at Chelmsford City, will want to keep his momentum up in the new season.
