Ed's up for County test

Ed Upson says his side's 2-0 victory over Wycombe in midweek will hold them in good stead when Notts County come to Huish Park.
Keith Curle's men have not lost an away game this season and the former Ipswich trainee knows what a threat the visitors, six points above 12th-place Yeovil, will pose.
But he believes their clean sheet and professional display against Wanderers was a helpful warm-up.
"Tuesday was a good game to prepare for Notts County," Upson told Press Association Sport. "They are a good team aren't they? It will be a tough game but it was good to get out there and get playing after 10 days or so without a game and it was definitely a good warm-up for that."
That 10-day gap, which came because of Yeovil's FA Cup elimination at Preston in the FA Cup first round, gave manager Gary Johnson a chance to work on a few things with his team.
Upson added: "We were in most days and we did a bit of karate and a few different things, a bit of team-bonding. But it was all hard work and hopefully it will all pay off."
Since returning from his four-game suspension for a red card at Deepdale, Upson has gone straight back into Johnson's starting line-up and capped a fine performance against Wycombe with a header, his first goal from inside the box and his third of the campaign.
"I am really enjoying being back in the team and it was nice to get a goal on Tuesday," he said. "But we won and that is the main thing for me.
"My aim is to get more goals now and kick on. I have set myself a goalscoring target but I'll keep that to myself. Things are going well though."
