Yeovil vs. Swansea

Huish Park

24th Feb 2007


Preview: Yeovil vs Swansea

Kevin Nugent takes charge of his 3rd game following the departure of Kenny Jackett as the Swans travel to Huish Park to take on Yeovil Town, another side competing for promotion.

We've picked up just 1 point so far in February so it'll be vital that we pick 3 points tomorrow if we want another shot at the play-offs.

Vital Quotes:

Kevin Nugent: 'We haven't got the results in the last two games, but I've been really pleased with the performances,' he added.

'And confidence is not a problem.

'The players are positive and they certainly feel they can still make the play-offs.

'I know they'll come out fighting tomorrow.'

Yeovil Team News:

Marcus Stewart should return after a calf injury whilst on-loan striker Leon Best returns to Southampton.

More team news to follow.

Player to watch: Cohen

Leon Best scored 10 laegue goals for the Glovers during his loan spell at Huish Park but luckily for us he's returned to Southampton. Cohen is the top scorer with 7 goals. The 19 year-old midfielder joined Yeovil in the summer from West Ham after a successful loan spell.

Swansea Team News:

Nugent has plenty of injuries to think about and he's contemplating on going with a 3-5-2 formation.

Akinfenwa's season is over with a broken leg, Pratley and Iriekpen are also out injured.

Duffy is also out injured but Alan Tate should return as well as Austin who replaces Izzy.

There will also be a boost to the midfield as Leon Britton is back following a dead leg.

Nugent is also expected to drop goalkeeper Willy Gueret. He's made a few costly errors lately and I'm sure that will be a very likable decision for the majority of the Swansea fans.

Player to watch: erm...

The way we're playing it's hard to select a 'player to watch'. Britton would be the obvious candidate but he's only returning from injury. No one else is really playing that well. I suppose Andy Oakes in goal will be one to watch as he needs to do a much better job than what Gueret has been doing lately.

Match Facts & Stats

Yeovil at Huish Park is definately one of our 'bogey sides'. In the last 3 games at Huish Park, Yeovil have won all of them without conceding a single goal. The odds certainly don't look good for us tomorrow.

Yeovil have lost their last 2 at home, to Tranmere and Millwall. Prior to that they won 2 and drawn 2.

Match Prediction:

I can't see anything else but a Yeovil win unfortunately. We're low on confidence and all these injuries doesn't help. 2-0 Yeovil win.

I will be glad to see Oakes in the side and given a few games to settle in. Through loss of form and many injuries the fringe players coming in will grab the opportunity to impress as there are not that many games left to trigger a new contract.
