Fleetwood Town v Yeovil preview

Date published: Thursday 1st December 2011 12:46

Gavin Williams could return to the Yeovil squad for the FA Cup second-round trip to Fleetwood.

Midfielder Williams had been out of action for almost three months with a knee ligament injury but returned to training recently and may return to manager Terry Skiverton’s squad.

Winger Alan O’Brien continues to miss out with a hamstring problem, but otherwise the Glovers are injury and suspension-free as they look to see off their non-league opposition and book a place in round three.

Skiverton knows from his experiences as a giant-killer with Yeovil how Fleetwood will prepare themselves mentally for the game, and he wants his side to assert their authority on the match – which is being screened live on ESPN.

“Our mentality is to make sure we are the league team and we play them like a league team,” he told Press Association Sport.

“That’s what the FA Cup is all about and that’s why they’ve put it on the TV – because they’re hoping for an upset. We’ve got to make sure we don’t provide that for them.”
