MATCH PREVIEW | Barnet - Yeovil Town

Town travel to the Hive

1 March 2021

After two postponements, Yeovil Town finally travel to the Hive to face Barnet on Tuesday evening (7:45pm).

The Glovers come into the game, full of confidence after a strong run of recent form, picking up 12 points from the last five games.

However, the story couldn’t be more different for Barnet, who have just three victories in the National League all season.

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

Speaking after Yeovil Town’s victory over Dagenham & Redbridge, Sarll said; “One thing we always reiterate as a group, is when we’ve got a goalkeeper on form, and our forward too we’ve got a hell of a chance, no matter if we play well or not.

“I thought Adam (Smith), was magnificent today (Saturday), he’s an absolute lunatic! He played very well, and his kicking is getting better too, it’s much more consistent.

“The shape of the side is getting much more consistent, and that coincides with our upturn.”

Team news

After a strong run of form, it will be a difficult task for any returning players to displace any of Saturday’s starters, as noted by Sarll in his post-match press conference in choosing Jimmy Smith in the holding role once again.

However, on Saturday Matt Worthington was replaced by the eventual match winner Tom Knowles after taking a knock.

In last week’s press conference, Sarll confirmed Luke Wilkinson was to see a specialist on Monday, and if all is right, the commanding centre half can step up his road to recovery.

Previous meetings

Our last clash with Barnet was one to forget for Yeovil fans, losing 2-0 in last season’s play-offs. Despite largely dominating the game, Yeovil’s season came to an end on a warm afternoon at Huish Park.

Despite only moving to the Hive in 2013, Yeovil have had some memorable trips to North-West London, the most notable came in April 2016 as Harry Cornick’s last gasp winner completed a 3-4 turnaround in a League Two clash.

A foot in the opposition camp

After reaching the play-off semi-finals last season, the Bees have slid down the table to the once relegation zone, replacing manager Peter Beadle in December with former Solihull Moor boss Tim Flowers.

Despite a good record with the Moors, Flowers will have hoped to have had more of an impact so far, guiding the Bees to just one win since taking over.

The man to look out for in orange is Anthony Wordsworth, after a successful career in the EFL with the likes of Colchester, Ipswich and Southend, Wordsworth has ventured into the National League to help guide Barnet out of trouble.

MATCH REPORT | Barnet - Yeovil Town

Comfortable victory in the capital

2 March 2021

Yeovil Town made it three wins in a row in spectacular style with a 1-4 victory over ten-man Barnet.

Two goals in two minutes from Jimmy Smith and Billy Sass-Davies built a comfortable advantage for Town before J.J. Hooper fired a stunning effort beyond Adam Smith to make a game of it.

After Tomi Adeloyi was sent off, it was one-way traffic throughout, with Rhys Murphy and Josh Neufville joining the scoring in the second half.

With games coming thick and fast, Darren Sarll made two changes to his Yeovil Town side.

Adam Smith remained in goal, but Michael Kelly returned to the defence alongside Sass-Davies, Max Hunt and Alex Bradley.

The other change came in the midfield as Tom Knowles returned to the fold after his last-minute winner against Dagenham & Redbridge. He was joined by J.Smith, Neufville and Albi Skendi.

Reuben Reid and Murphy started up front once again.

Like most games in recent weeks, the Glovers came out the traps fast as Skendi found shooting room on the edge of the box in the first minute, but his effort was well-saved by Scott Loach.

Just minutes later, J.Smith fired an effort on the half volley from around 25-yards, but his shot flew narrowly over the bar.

However, it wouldn’t take long for J.Smith to make amends for his miss, opening the scoring on 11 minutes. After Reid's initial effort was saved, Yeovil’s number ten reacted first to hammer the ball home.

One quickly became two as on 13 minutes. Sass-Davies scored his first goal for the Green and Whites, heading home from Michael Kelly’s corner to double the advantage.

Barnet did pull one back via a spectacular effort from J.J. Hooper who fired a volley on the turn beyond A.Smith to complete a frantic opening fifteen minutes.

In the 33rd minute, the game’s dynamic took a major shift as Adeloye was sent off for dissent after blocking Kelly’s free kick.

In what was a professional performance, Yeovil didn’t rush chances, and held onto the ball whilst Barnet sat off to keep shape.

After the half-time break was when Town made the extra man pay, making chance after chance from the off.

Both Skendi and Neufville went close after great individual runs, but it took a typical poacher finish from Murphy following Bradley’s free kick to add the Glovers third of the night.    

The game became a training exercise in the second half, with Bradley often enjoying the freedom of the Hive down the green and white’s right flank.

However, Town’s fourth came from the left, after great endeavour from substitute Chris Dagnall, Neufville was found free on the left flank to beautifully finish beyond Loach and cap off a successful night in London for Yeovil.

 

Yeovil Town: A.Smith; Bradley, Hunt, Sass-Davies, Kelly; J.Smith, Neufville (Lee), Knowles, Skendi (Quigley); Murphy, Reid (Dagnall).

Bookings: Neufville, Bradley.

Subs not used: Dickinson, Worthington.
