Wrexham make their first journey to Huish Park since 2003 and first visit in a league capacity as Dean Keates' side look to register back-to-back away wins.

Form

Wrexham come into the game on the back of a convincing 0-2 win away to play-off chasing Bromley. Davis Keillor-Dunn made his first Wrexham start and repayed the faith shown in him by opening the scoring after 13 minutes. Rob Lainton made a string of fine saves before Jordan Ponticelli netted for the second game running in stoppage time to seal three points. Wrexham are now in good form on the road with three wins in their last four.

Yeovil were last in action on Saturday as they travelled to Boreham Wood. Kabongo Tshimanga's goal for the Wood was the difference on the day. The Glovers are now without a win in the National League since New Year's Day and have lost three on the bounce, with their last home victory in the division came all the way back on Boxing Day.

Key Players

Forward Keillor-Dunn put in a superb performence on Saturday and made the most of his oppurtunity when given his first start. The Sunderland-born attacker ran the defence ragged and finished a sensational goal early on to dance through the Bromley back-line. Working as a front three with Ponticelli and Dan Jarvis, Wrexham looked dangerous going forward and Keillor-Dunn will hope to contribute even more this weekend having potentially impressed enough for another place in the starting XI.

Yeovil forward Courntey Duffus has provided the goals for the Glovers this term with 12 to his name so far. The former Everton trainee was in red-hot form over the Christmas period with eight goals in six games but hasn't bagged for Yeovil since New Year's Day, with his dip in goal scoring form coinciding with the league form as a whole. 

Head to Head

We've met just twice in our history with the latest instalment coming earlier this season. Back in November a six-goal thriller warmed up the spectators with a back and forth battle at the Cae Ras. Rhys Murphy opened the scoring after three minutes before Akil Wright  levelled. Murphy struck against before Paul Rutherford restored parity before half-time, minutes into the second half Bobby Grant gave Wrexham the lead for the first time. On 67 minutes the final goal of the game was scored with Murphy completing his hatrick. Our only meeting at Huish Park was in the FA Cup in 2003, Yeovil running out 4-1 winners over the Dragons.

Team News

Wrexham are still without Mark Carrington, Luke Summerfield and James Jennings through injury but Akil Wright returned from his injury last weekend.
