Preview: Yeovil Town (H)

4 August 2022

The Iron get their 2022-23 National League season underway live in front of the BT Sport cameras on Saturday when Yeovil Town visit Glanford Park (5.20pm kick-off).

Following a six week pre-season with which first team manager Keith Hill expressed how pleased he was, and eight new signings, United will be looking to get the new campaign underway with three points.

IRON TEAM NEWS
Colin Daniel and Kgosi Ntlhe have been described by Hill as 'there or thereabouts' in terms of being fit for selection after missing some recent friendlies as a precaution.

Jordan Hallam (hamstring) will definitely miss out though.

Otherwise, United will have the same pool of players to select from that played the pre-season friendlies.

THE OPPOSITION
Under the new management of Chris Hargreaves, the Glovers come into the fixture looking to build on last season's mid-table finish. They have former Iron loan left-back Jamie Reckord on their books after signing this summer, while last season's top goalscorer Tom Knowles remains.
