Johnson invites United coach to post match drink

Arguably the biggest, certainly the most glamorous, match in Yeovil Football Club's history is now just three days away.

A capacity crowd of 9,500 will be at Huish Park on Sunday to watch the Glovers take on Manchester United in the third round of the FA Cup.

Yeovil's manager Gary Johnson says he'll invite United's coach Louis Van Gaal to share a post match drink, whatever the outcome.

Exeter City boss Tisdale: "Form is no flash in the pan"

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says he believes his team can challenge for the League Two play-offs.

The Grecians had a slow, alarming start to the campaign but are now one of the most in-form sides in the Football League.

In fact, City have only lost one league game in their last 15 since the end of August.

They travel to Stevenage this weekend, hoping to cement their place in the top seven.

A major reason behind Exeter's rise has been their quota of gifted young players like Matt Grimes and Tom Nichols.

Bigger clubs are already circling like vultures, and selling any of the current crop of stars mid-season in January could derail City's progress before it reaches fruition.

Manager Tisdale admits he would rather retain their services, but remains pragmatic, admitting that Exeter City are "a selling club".
