Big test for lads

Three of our young players face the biggest match of their short careers for Yeovil Town tonight (Tuesday, March 31).

Academy pair Jon Obika and Andros Townsend and young professional Danny Hutchins are all on loan at Yeovil in League One.

All three played as the Glovers secured a key 1-0 victory against Swindon Town on Saturday - Jon scored the winner - and now they face another crunch encounter against Northampton Town at Huish Park.

Yeovil remain fourth from bottom and in the relegation zone but Saturday's three points took them level with Northampton a place above them - hence the importance of tonight's meeting.

"I guess you could call it a real six-pointer," said Jon, who is relishing his time in Somerset. "We both need the points.

"I'm sure if we played like we did against Swindon on Saturday we'll be able to grind out a positive result. I was delighted to score but the three points were all that mattered.

"It's been a great experience so far and everyone at Yeovil has been so welcoming. I've learned so much already and I'm relishing the pressure. It brings the best out of me.

"I'm thankful that I've got this opportunity and I just hope it now goes well against Northampton."
