After a dramatic comeback on Saturday the Glovers travel to London Road this Easter Monday to take on promotion hopefuls Peterborough United in a bid to finally guarantee mathematical safety from the drop.
The Glovers currently boast an eight point gap from the sides embossed in the relegation battle, but with nine points still up for grabs although unlikely, it is still mathematically possible for the Green and Whites to be relegated.
Dagenham & Redbridge, Walsall and Bristol Rovers- the three teams who realistically can pull away from relegation all have games against relatively tough opposition, taking on Huddersfield, Oldham and Bournemouth respectively; meaning any result for the Glovers today is likely to see them seal their safety.
If they are to do so it will be without captain Paul Huntington, who starts the first of a two game suspension after being sent off at the weekend. Fellow defender Luke Ayling sits out his last game of a two match suspension after being sent off the week previous, whilst the only other injury doubt is Andy Williams, who continues to struggle with his ankle ligaments.
Despite the hectic Easter schedule with two games in three days Peterborough themselves remain relatively injury free, with Charlie Lee their only doubt after picking up a knock against Leyton Orient. Coming back from injury should be winger Tommy Rowe, who has recovered from a groin injury.
The reverse fixture back in February was almost a good result for Yeovil, that was until the final five minutes of the game where they conceded two goals to lose 2-0, despite a battling performance.
If you aren't travelling to London Road this afternoon you can listen to the game on BBC Radio Somerset 99.5FM with a match report following later here on Glover Lover.pqs: qs:
