Old boys will have a point to prove

Reporter: Chris Lynham
Date online: 20 December 2012

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.

Come on Oldham. We can beat this lot!

Sadly the Omens are there....Yeovil not won for a month !

More than likely that our totally lost and bemused players will help them to resolve that problem..?

No doubt the Manager will have some wonderful new tactical plan..7-2-1 will be about right as he clearly is confused about any other methods.

Now Matt Derbyshire has gone, it's time for the rest of the team to start becoming true professionals and stepping up to the mark, the mark being Fight and with Consistency, skill is there but ???
