MATCH PREVIEW | Maidenhead United – Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town return to National League action for the first time in ten days with a trip to Maidenhead United on Tuesday evening (7:45pm).

The Glovers were without a league game on Saturday due to safety concerns following Storm Eunice.

Meanwhile, Tuesday’s hosts recorded a memorable victory in front of the TV cameras at York Road, with a 2-0 victory over FA Cup giant-killers Boreham Wood.

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

The boss hasn’t faced the press since Friday’s pre-match press conference for the postponed National League match against Dagenham & Redbridge.

“We’ve got to be better at home, but I think we’ve been from home. In general, some of our results away from home have been fabulous.”

Team news

Speaking ahead of the postponed Dagenham & Redbridge match, Sarll confirmed that Town would have certainly be without Max Hunt who picked up a training injury last month. 

Jack Robinson, who picked up a minor knock against Wealdstone and was a doubt but that situation may have changed in time for Tuesday’s trip to Berkshire. On the suspension front, Dale Gorman serves the first match of his two game ban after picking up his tenth yellow.

Tuesday’s match is the last of Ben Barclay’s initial loan period, but last week Sarll expressed his desire to keep the Stockport man around for an extended period.

A foot in the opposition camp

It’s been a rather perplexing season for Maidenhead United, who possess the record of five wins out of the seven games they’ve played at home against the top seven, but when it comes to teams in the bottom half they have won just two games against them all season.

The mixed bag of results leaves the Magpies in 20th place, but they will be boosted by their victory over high-flying Boreham Wood on Saturday evening, live on BT Sport.

Have we met before?

Since returning to the National League, the Glovers have endured a difficult time against Maidenhead United, with zero wins in four games. 

During the 19/20 season, the two sides played just once before COVID-19 curtailed the season, with Maidenhead United snatching a 2-1 victory at Huish Park. 

Last season, Town fell to a defeat at York Road, and picked up a point in the Glovers’ penultimate fixture at Huish Park last season.

Earlier this campaign, the Glovers were held to a goalless draw by the Magpies.
