F.A. Cup Fourth Round Draw, Saints v Yeovil
After securing victory against Burnley we have been assigned another home tie against Championship opposition in the shape of Yeovil Town.
Last years surprise League One play off winners will be welcomed at St Mary's in the F.A. Cup 4th round
Continuing the Southampton connections Yeovil have two players on their books who have played in our colours, the most prominent is academy graduate Sam Hoskins who was released in the summer after not quite making the step up to our first team. The other player is defender Danny Seaborne, after recovering from his terrible head injuries after a night-out in Southampton back in September 2011 he never managed to regain his place in our first team. Like Hoskins he was released last summer and joined Yeovil, however his carer seems to be on a rather negative trajectory as has almost immediately been loaned out to League One Coventry City by the Glovers.
Our last meeting resulted in a 3-0 home victory as we secured promotion from league one. After their surprise promotion to the Championship last season Yeovil have struggled to assert themselves in the second tier, the chance for a cup upset at St Mary's will be sure to provide a worthy distraction from their league fears.
The tie will be played at St Mary's on Saturday 25th January. 3pm Kick Off.
