Old boys will have a point to prove

ATHLETIC’S bid to get back on track at Yeovil on Saturday could be derailed by two familiar faces.
The team, 16th in the league, hopes to put the lacklustre 2-0 home loss to Swindon Town behind it against a side four points and two positions better off.
But striker Reuben Reid and midfield man Keanu Marsh-Brown, both summer departures from Boundary Park, now ply their trade with the Glovers - and will be striving to prove a point.
Both men have made a good impression at Huish Park: Reid, impressive in flashes for Athletic but plagued by injury, has plundered six goals this term and set up a couple.
Marsh-Brown, effective down the flanks at times but inconsistent, has found the net twice for Yeovil and made three assists.
But Gary Johnson’s side has gone more than a month without a league win.
As well as Reid and Marsh-Brown, a lot of hope rests on the shoulders of marksman James Hayter, eight goals up this season.
