Bristol Rvs. prepare to entertain Yeovil Town at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Three-out-of-four times, this fixture has resulted in a draw for Pirates.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Memorial Stadium was just last season, in October 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League One match.
