Last Season

A difficult, testing season ended quite well for the Glovers, who found their stride at the right time; conceding only four goals in ten from February to April. However, a sixteen game winless run meant that things needed to change in December. Paul Sturrock was relieved of his duties in the middle of this poor run, with Darren Way given the chance to steer Yeovil to safety. He did so, finishing 14 points above the drop zone.


Key Players

Yeovil’s impressive run of clean-sheets toward the end of the season suggests a leaky defence has been stabilised, with Nathan Smith and Ryan Dickson improving considerably from the first half of the season. Boro fans will know what Swansea loanee Ryan Hedges is capable of, and his teammate Liam Shephard also returns to Yeovil’s back-line after impressing last season. Francois Zoko is another name that Boro fans will remember fondly; his goals and experience could prove crucial.
