With just two short days to go before the football league season returns, we take a look at how successive relegation sufferers, Yeovil Town, could line up against Exeter on Saturday.

Paul Sturrock has recruited 15 new faces at Huish Park and will be looking to buck the losing mentality that the Glovers have become accustomed to.

Sturrock is a winner and very much a fan of direct football. This 4 – 4 -2 formation may well rely on set pieces and plenty of crosses into the box.

In goal, Krysiak will be hoping to secure the number 1 shirt after Chris Weale also took on the role as coach. However, Weale has looked strong in pre – season and Sturrock has admitted he wants competition in every position.

Nathan Smith is one of the few surviving members of Sturrock’s clear out and has looked much more useful at left back during the season’s preparation. Ryan Dickson, Yeovil Town’s new captain, will therefore most likely be in midfield alongside Matt Dolan who spent time on loan at Huish Park in 2013.

Up front Yeovil look soft but young prospect Shaun Jeffers is likely to be given his chance and will partner one of Ryan Bird or Mark Beck.

Former Carlisle striker, Beck, has much to prove at this level and will be looking to secure his place in the starting 11.

A  good start is crucial for Yeovil Town as they look to mount a promotion push. It may be too much to ask first time around but fans will want to see progress under their new manager.
