Believe it or not, Yeovil are absolutely flying. After years fighting it out at the bottom of the table, the Glovers have started the season brilliantly, and look like they can challenge towards the top of the table.
Last week, they picked up their biggest win since earning promotion to the Football League, a 6-0 win away Newport County. It was also the biggest away win in League Two since 2011, when Rotherham United won 6-0 at Lincoln City.
It represents a massive change in form for Yeovil away from home. Having won just four away games in the whole of last season, they have won three already this season, and are unbeaten since the opening day loss at Bury. In the three away games since then, they have scored 11 goals, with none going in at the other end. Prior to the win at Newport, they had picked up two wins in the East Midlands, 4-0 at Notts County, and then 1-0 at Grimsby Town.
Defensively, Yeovil look an awful lot better this season, and have shown this by keeping five consecutive League Two defeats. The experienced pair of Carl Dickinson and Gary Warren have been two excellent additions, while Nathan Baxter has been a breath of fresh air in goal.
This is form they will hope to carry on against Swindon this Saturday, who have had an indifferent start to the season. They currently sit 14th, and lost their last game at home 2-1 to Bury.
There isn’t too much to say about team news with Yeovil, because Darren Way would be mad to change a team that won 6-0 at Newport last week.
Predicted XI (4-4-2): Nathan Baxter; Tom James, Gary Warren, Omar Sowumni, Carl Dickinson; Jordan Green, Sessi D’Almeida, Alex Pattison, Yoann Arquin; Alex Fisher, Diallang Jaiyesimi
I know I keep getting these wrong, but back me on this one, because all logic points to a Yeovil victory in this one. They are flying at the moment, and look almost unstoppable at times.
