Dawson brothers head-to-head in key Yeovil match

Yeovil's battle to stay in the Championship looks like it will go right down to the wire.

Gary Johnson's team conceded late equalisers in their last two games which cost them valuable wins.

On Saturday they play Barnsley, the club immediately below the Glovers in the relegation zone: a must-win match.

And it is an extra special occasion for midfielder Kevin Dawson, who will be playing against his brother.

Dawson brothers go head-to-head in 'six pointer'

Yeovil Town play Barnsley in a Championship relegation zone "six pointer" on Saturday.

The result could be decisive for both teams, but it's also an extra special occasion for Yeovil midfielder, Kevin Dawson.

The 23-year-old from Dublin will be lining up against his older brother, Stephen, for the very first time.

15 family members are flying over from Ireland to watch the brothers do battle and Dawson junior admits that his parents "won't know which way to look".

Kevin confesses that they're both "massive mummy's boys" but that his elder sibling enjoys listening to Girls Aloud.
