Remember me? Links between these two clubs are few and far between, and for individual performances, it is hard to pick anyone out after the 6-0 hammering we suffered at Ashton Gate last season. I think we saw too much of all of them!
Man to watch: Phil Jevons. Scored 16 goals for Yeovil last season and in a successful team will be hoping to score even more. The former Everton and Grimsby man has teamed up with former Yeovil boss Gary Johnson once again and will be a real man to watch.
2006/07 prospects: Johnson took over after a disastrous start and eventually turned City’s form around. They have strengthened well and should be real contenders and could well be celebrating promotion in May – if not a title win.
