Exeter City make the short trip to Somerset as they take on Yeovil Town in their first group game of the Checkatrade Trophy.
The Grecians make the journey looking to prevent a fourth consecutive loss in all competitions and the match could provide some of the City players an opportunity to impress and push for a starting place on Saturday against Notts County.
Ahead of the match, goalkeeper James Hamon said: “It’s a first team game at the end of the day and we’ve not had a win in three matches so it’s important that we try and turn that around and the next game to do that is against Yeovil.
“It will be treated like an important first team game and we want to stop the losses and turn things around with a win.
“I think there is going to be a freshness about us and it’s a game that we need to win coming off the back of three losses so it’s something that we want to turn around. Our record away at Yeovil recently hasn’t been great, so why not turn things around there?
“It’s our only away game and I think it’s important to get points on the board. If we do that then we’ve got some exciting games at St James Park ahead.”
When we last met:
The sides last met towards the end of last season when the City were held to a goalless draw at home by Darren Way’s side. Despite creating a number of chances, they were unable to find a way through to put themselves ahead.

Travelling by car:
The trip to Huish Park is approximately 50 miles, depending on which way you travel. You can either travel up the M5 and then join the A358 and then the A303, or along the A30 and then A303.
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.
There are a couple of pubs within a 10 to 15-minute walk from the ground by the names of The Arrow and the Airfield Tavern. Next to the Airfield Tavern is a fish and chip shop called Palmers. Inside the Arrow, SkyTv is shown for the viewing of the customers.
