Match Preview – Yeovil Town vs AFC Wimbledon


Tonight, Yeovil Town will host AFC Wimbledon in the second round of the EFL Trophy.

The Glovers left it late against Port Vale this weekend as winger Jordon Green last-minute header earned them the replay. The winner of the replay will play Bradford City in the next round.

Darren Way was delighted to earn the second-round replay, saying: “We finished the game strongly and towards the end I though an equaliser was looking inevitable. Glovers manager was also happy with new signing Oscar Gobern who “affected the game in a positive way”.

Yeovil are yet to lose in the competition, winning two and drawing one with a bonus point for their penalty shootout victory.

This will be the third competitive meeting between the Glovers and the Dons.

Yeovil remain unbeaten against the Dons with a victory and a draw, their last meeting back in January 2016 saw the Glovers win the game 3-2 thanks to a Jack Compton hat trick.
