I always feel, Yeovil are a bogey type team for us but in truth this is the type of game I'd be very annoyed to lose.

They've been poor at times, but compared to our defending - I know which is worst.

A win would be a lift. However, it sounds like Michael Doyle might have been selected. I don't know if this will be a good, or bad thing. People say we need grit, but he's not the most defensive player once tired. If he helps, that's great, but it could just hinder the chances of returning to good form.

I'd be more excited to see Kyle Cameron/Connell Rawlinson return.

The last three games are not a good advertisement for Notts, if Yeovil do their homework it could be a very difficult game. As mentioned before me, if Notts turns up and attacks well, taking some of the pressure of the defence a good result could come.

Its time Notts bounces back.

Yeovil away. At least we are getting it over with early in the season and it's not a mid week fixture. Yeovil are 14th but they have only played 7 games, Notts have played 10. They haven't won in their last 3 games. 1 draw and 2 defeats. They have only scored 1 goal in those 3 games so must be delighted that they are coming up against the Notts defence this weekend! They don't concede too many goals. 7 in 7 games is impressive. Yeovil are a dangerous side because they are unpredictable. They went to Stockport and won 3-0 but then last Saturday they could only manage a 0-0 draw at home against 10 man Maidenhead. This is a matchup of 2 sides who badly need a win to stop the rot. I think it will be a close game. 1-1 draw for me. Notts to take the lead and Yeovil to level it in the last 20 minutes.

The upturn has to happen sooner or later, I just worry that a few more defeats will happen before something gives.

Yeovil aren't a side I think anyone should write off.

Ian Burchnall needs to make sure we have the right balance in attacking and defensive play, if we lead, he should be mindful of the players switching off and try to shout out commands to experience players to try to weather the storm.

Hopefully, the Notts team that are overcoming the recent defeats will continue to get ahead when they have fallen back. Or if it is later in the game and our attacking form has stopped being effective, this will be time for us time to time waste a little with passing football, otherwise after time we might generally fold as opposed to keep pushing.

The start of the season seemed different in a good way, being undefeated for so long and that one game seems to have stung the players more, leading to the two collapsed defeats. Well, I hope Yeovil will be a different outcome.

I think Notts could win 2-0, if they work hard enough.

Will Ian Burchnall drop the "pretty football", in favour of a more gritty approach to get the job done.

Yeovil could be the turning point to get back to winning ways, or they could ruin another weekend. I think both teams are like that, as a neutral it could be a good game.

I'm predicting a 2-1 win, I can see Yeovil leading, and Notts pulling back level near the end of the first half. With the win coming for Notts at the 80th minute mark. 🤞🏻

Kyle Wootton is due a goal again. :D

Much needed win and thank god we got to play Yeovil when we did because they sounded pretty toothless. Probably should’ve scored more, but given the recent results I’m not complaining.

We really are quite a threat from set-pieces now, that’s another goal from a corner. Ruben had a good day, he’s back in goal-scoring form. And Cameron back too, I think he will have given everyone a boost going into that game.

Mini-crisis averted!

I think Kyle Cameron's return is a vital factor and, for a short moment I feared we might've lost Ciaran Brennan.

Also, despite Yeovil sounding incredibly poor, the positives of the win and clean sheet shouldn't be overlooked. I don't think right now any faults can be had, of course there's room for improvement but the win puts Notts back on track to some extent.

Charlie Slater mentioned that our start has been poor, without acknowledging that this is due to the 3 defeats in a row.

A bit negative that, in my eyes, after the last 4 games.

It's the form which hasn't been great, but after two defeats which we gave to our opponents - I think we need to avoid being too critical at this stage.

Ruben Rodrigues sounds like he's on fire right now, was it him Ian Burchnall mentioned 'he's been playing through pain' - re the broken ribs comment? Hopefully, whoever it was, that is not the case. Stockport County will be a test, but if we focus on the right things I am not too concerned.

good win, hope notts can use it to build on. i dont think we can expect to be higher, we have to earn that with good results. i do think it shows how important kyle cameron is to the notts county defence, obviously its not all down to him. yeovil sounded poor, but its something to push on from.

Delighted that Notts got the win, it sounded like it could've been a Barnet type game with how poor Yeovil played.

I'm not bothered that the game ended 2-0, I would've been content with just the single goal.

The clean sheet is an added bonus, I hope Ian Burchnall can keep Ruben Rodrigues in form because we are a different type of team with him on fire, as is Cal Roberts and co.

I didn't get round to posting, but I thought a gritty, ugly 1-0 win would have done us a world of good, so I'm delighted with the result. It was just important to get back to winning ways and just get the basic things right again. Looking forward to seeing the highlights of this one!

Seeing out games is something I think the squad will get better at, what with players returning. Provided we keep a strong defence, I think the worries should be over. I am glad Notts managed to get the 2-0 win.

By all means it could've been more goals for Notts, but the job was done which is all that matters.
