Yet another Tuesday night game, this time brought forward from the JPT weekend. We scraped a win in the home game thanks to a very dodgy penalty so Yeovil will be looking for revenge. The sell out away crowd will be expecting a win though. I'll go for a draw.

Another unchanged line up I assume but wouldn't mind some rotation.

Worst home record in the league vs best away record in the league, hopefully it goes true to form but local derbys and the form book goes out the window. Still think we will be too strong in this case 2/3-1 to City, Wilbraham and Freeman with goals.

Would hope JET's in for Agard for this one.

Wouldn't change a winning team personally, just from what I've seen on FL show Agard has had a hand to play in some of our goals in recent games.

He has, I just feel JET has a big part to play, and with the games coming thick and fast it would be a good time for Cott's to freshen it up.

Any points from this game will be a bonus, Orient and Colchester away are far more important games for us.

I would like to see Skivo leave the team unchanged following the Oldham game and try to attack but I fear he will play extremely defensive and we will get an absolute battering.

This game has Webster red card written all over it.

Not sure I'm keen on the idea of JET and Wilbs upfront, not as much energy as there is with Agard, meaning less closing down etc meaning clubs can play out from the back, atm we force the to go longer.

I see your point mate, but we've been playing saturday/tuesday for what seems like an age now, nothing wrong with giving a few a rest.. specifically the guys that run around alot, like agard.. need to keep the squad fresh.

I'd have JET in for Agard.

My only concern on this is that we can't have won 4 away games in a row very often.

Would take a point on this as we have a very healthy lead. Will again be a battle like Crawley as they will fight hard. Hope they don't water the pitch like the last 2 sides we have been to though...

Yeovil will be up for this one, their fans will be behind them as its a derby. Wont be easy, I am predicting Yeovil 1-2 City.

Do City fans consider this a genuine derby?

I've only really seen fans of both sides like to see the other do well (although we did enjoy having a chuckle at your abysmal start to last season!) though this could be because of the bitterness that our 'undeserved' recent (relative) success and standing has caused those non-leaguers in North Bristol...

I see it as a derby based on the distance between the two teams, but not a rivalry as there's not really any bad blood between the fans.

It's a strange one, when Yeovil were Non League, I always rooted for them. It is a derby in a geographical sense, but there's not really much rivalry from our side. Indeed there's only been five league games between us. I'm sure you'll be desperate to put one over on us! Do you still call us the big club up the road?

A derby yes, rivals no. Always liked Yeovil.

Always wish Yeovil well, unless we're playing them.

I thought your fans were the ones who hated us. I've saw your fans post flags on twitter with the words 'Dean Windass, Yeovil legend' written on them. Add to that every chant this season at Ashton Gate was anti-city for some reason. As far as I'm aware most City fans want Yeovil to do well. I used to, not anymore

In general, city fans seem to want Yeovil to do well but the feeling is absolutely not mutual. I watched our last game at Huish Park in the home ends, and felt nothing but hostility and contempt for us. Hope we thrash them tomorrow and they get relegated. Sorry.

I don't mind Yeovil and like seeing them doing well.

I don't understand why their fans have been moaning so much this season. For them to even be in the football league when tradiotionally they have never been in it, is pretty good. To make the Championship was something else...I suspect they will go down this year and probably be OK in League 2 next season.

The TBCUTR acronym gets the occasional airing now & then lol. I agree, it's more geographical rather than based on any rivalry. In fact we've got a lot in common. Mainly our mutual dislike of Roooooovers.

City should play Agard due to the unwritten law of returning players scoring against former teams.

Like others have said. Derby in distance but in my opinion they isn't much of a rivalry between the two clubs. If there is, it would be Yeovil having ill-feeling towards City!

With that being said, if Yeovil cheat to get one of our players sent off in the first 5 minutes and then go on to beat us 1-0 and celebrate like you've just won the champions league, then you will become a rival. Hmmmm who does that remind me of??? ;)

As long as he doesn't step up to the spot if we get a penalty tomorrow..

I have to say I did find that chanting a bit odd, although it created a great atmosphere (someone had to ;)). I think it's more down to the fact we don't have any genuine rivalries - we still chant about Weymouth despite not playing them competitively for 20 odd years - and some of our fans are desperate to start one.

Yeovil are like a little brother and I've always assumed they hate Rovers, a similar sized rival.
