Last Time We Met Yeovil Town

26 November 2018

Neil Aspin and his Port Vale side make the 384-mile round trip to Huish Park on Tuesday evening looking to bounce back from two successive defeats, but what happened when we last faced the Glovers?

It was back in January when the two teams last locked horns in Sky Bet League Two, and a closely fought affair ended in a stalemate at Vale Park.

Yeovil looked the most dangerous during the first half and they took an early lead courtesy of Francois Zoko, the winger slotting a finish into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Vale's defence stood firm for the rest of the afternoon, however, and the hosts were handed a lifeline when David Worrall earned his side a penalty with just five minutes to play.

Tom Pope then took the responsibility of stepping up to take the spot kick, and he empatically powered a strike past Artur Krysiak to register his 14th goal of the season and secure a point.

The last meeting in Somerset proved to be a pulsating one, with five goals being scored on a crazy night of football in the Emirates FA Cup.

Despite Vale having Cristian Montano and James Gibbons sent off, Marcus Harness' late goal cancelled out Otis Khan's penalty, and the tie was forced into extra time.

Khan then struck again before Antony Kay equalised in spectacular fashion, but it wasn't to be for Vale as Zoko found a Yeovil winner just seconds afterwards to condemn the Valiants to defeat.
