📝 Big Match Preview: Yeovil Town v City

All you need to know ahead of the trip to Huish Park

4 October 2018

Exeter City make the short trip to Yeovil Town on Saturday looking to continue their positive run of form in Sky Bet League Two.

The Grecians are on a high after beating Stevenage 1-0 at St James Park in midweek, and they’ll be looking to claim three more points at the weekend against Darren Way’s side.

Ahead of the trip to Somerset, manager Matt Taylor said: “They started off the season really well, I think they’ve struggled over the last couple of weeks from injuries. They are a dangerous team, you saw the result at Newport County when they scored six against a team going for promotion.

“They’ve got goals in them, they’ve got dynamic players and they’re great on the counter attack.

WHEN WE LAST MET

You don’t have to cast your mind too far back to recall when the side’s last faced each other as they met in the Checkatrade Trophy just last month. Despite it being an end-to-end exciting encounter, the match remained goalless and was decided by a penalty shootout, which the Grecians won, to claim a bonus point.

Then join the A3088 and follow it to a roundabout where you take the first exit onto Bunford Lane. Travel straight over the first roundabout and then take the first exit at the second roundabout and you will see Huish Park.

Car parking is available at Huish Park, priced at £3 a car on both sides of the ground. There are large areas of industrial estates to the west of the stadium and large residential areas to the east. If fans wish to park off site we would ask that you favour the industrial areas and avoid the heighted red area, so as to minimise disruption to the local residents.

Yeovil has two railway stations, Yeovil Pen Mill which links with trains from Bristol and Birmingham, and Yeovil Junction which has a regular service from London Waterloo and Exeter.

Both stations are about three miles from Huish Park. Therefore, a taxi to the ground would be advisable. Taxis are always available at both stations. The journey takes between one hour/one hour 30 minutes by train from Exeter.
