MATCH PREVIEW: YEOVIL TOWN V LUTON TOWN

6 April 2018

The Hatters take on an in-form Yeovil side tomorrow as Nathan Jones' team look to put themselves ten points clear of fourth place in Sky Bet League Two.

Both sides go into the game off the back of decent wins, the Hatters triumphing over Mansfield Town, whilst Yeovil put six past Coventry in a convincing win at the Ricoh Arena.

Unbeaten in three, Darren Way's side have picked up six points from their last two games, with the Glovers currently sitting in 17th place in the fourth tier.

Town head to Huish Park with the fifth best away record in the division, having picked up 30 points from 20 games. Yeovil on the other hand have the 14th best home record, but have been beaten in both of their previous games at home.

THE GAFFER SAYS:

On his time with Yeovil: "I have a real fond, affiliation with the club. I went there at the stage of my career where I wanted a new challenge. I got that. They were great people there, they encouraged me to further my education and gave me the platform to do that within the club by being player-assistant manager. There's real good memories there in terms of the games I played, how I cut my teeth as a coach. We had to learn on the job and it was a real good time."

On whether that adds to the occasion: "There's more determination, for us and Yeovil, it adds an edge. It'll be another team that is highly motivated against us, we've got to go there and be the best version of us and that's all I can ask."

On Scott Cuthbert's injury: "He's played four or five 90 minutes now and maybe it was just one 90 minutes too far. We're always mindful when do we pull him back out again because he has muscular niggles really and that was one game to far to be honest. The pitches at the minute are very heavy. They take it out of you. His is more days than weeks or months."

WHO?

Formed 121 years ago as Yeovil Casuals, the club now known as Yeovil Town play at Huish Park in the Somerset town. They won the League Two title in 2004-05 and then promotion to the Championship in 2012-13 as League One play-off winners.

Two successive relegations led them back to the fourth tier 2015, before sailing slightly close to the wind last season when they nearly fell back into Non-League football, finishing in 20th.

WHEN AND WHERE?

Kick-off is at 3pm on Saturday 7th April at Huish Park.

PLAYED BEFORE?

Anyone remember the opening day of the season? The Hatters of course got off to a flyer this campaign, scoring five first half goals in an 8-2 win at Kenilworth Road. Our last visit to Huish Park proved almost as fruitful, when Danny Hylton netted a brace in a 4-0 victory. Of the eight games contested between the Hatters and the Glovers, Town have won five, whilst Yeovil have only one win to their name. The other two have been draws.
