Footymad preview History of the Yeovil Town v Colchester United fixture

Yeovil Town prepare to entertain Colchester United at Huish Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 5 of the 10 previous games, with the Glovers winning just 3.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Huish Park was less than a year ago, in April 2011, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a League One match.
