Dawson brothers head-to-head in key Yeovil match

by Matthias Kurth

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.

Exeter College ready for Twickenham final

It's a big day for Exeter College tomorrow. Their team will run out at Twickenham in the final of the national schools' Under-18 Vase competition.

It's the first time the college have reached a national final since 2005, when they won the under-18 cup. And after winning six games to reach tomorrow's showpiece, they feel it's time to lift another trophy.

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.

Confidence is high at Plymouth Argyle. The Pilgrims beat league leaders Chesterfield in midweek to move into the League Two play-off places. Today they travel to mid-table Accrington Stanley.

And every point matters for Exeter and Torquay now. The Grecians are just three points above the teams immediately below them in the League Two relegation zone. So they desperately need to hold their nerve and get three points at home to Fleetwood.

The same goes for Torquay, who host Newport at Plainmoor.

In the Championship, Yeovil host Bolton at Huish Park, knowing that victory could lift them clear of the relegation zone.
