MATCH PREVIEW | Yeovil Town – Solihull Moors

Yeovil Town will look to return to winning ways as Solihull Moors visit Huish Park on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Off the back of a disappointing draw with bitter rivals Weymouth, the Glovers have a point to prove against a Solihull side with similar play-off ambitions.

In recent weeks, Solihull have been one of the National League’s form sides, winning all of their last four fixtures.

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Sarll said; “Both of their forwards (Newton & Dallas), we wanted in the Summer. Danny Newton I had him at Stevenage, we got him from Telford.

“I know Danny very well, I spoke to him and he was a player we would’ve very much liked to have here to compliment our group. Andrew Dallas is somebody they acquired from Cambridge for a fee which was not in our capabilities.

“They’re two very good centre forwards, I don’t know Andrew personally, but I do Danny and he’s a great guy.”

Team news

After sitting out due to suspension against the Terras, Mark Little and Tom Knowles can both return to the fold on Saturday afternoon.

Josh Staunton remains an injury doubt but will be assessed on Friday afternoon as to whether he can be involved in some capacity whilst Max Hunt remains a long-term absentee.

Have we met before?

Since relegation to the National League, Yeovil Town have endured mixed results against the Moors.

In Sarll’s first season, Yeovil Town extended their early season winning run with a memorable victory in the midlands, which saw Luke Wilkinson score, and then go in goal after an injury to Liam O’Brien. Later that season, the two sides played out a dull draw.

Last season, a second half collapse saw Yeovil fall to a 5-1 defeat, but it right just days later with a 3-0 victory at Huish Park.

Earlier this season, the two sides could not be separated in a 0-0 draw at Damson Park.

A foot in the opposition camp

Solihull Moors have been in red-hot form in recent weeks, especially star striker Andy Dallas. In his last three games, the former Cambridge United man has hit eight goals, including a five goal haul against Dover Athletic.

The Moors have won all of their last four games, hitting five goals on two occasions, so will be full of confidence on Saturday afternoon.
