MATCH PREVIEW | Aldershot Town - Yeovil Town

Look ahead to Tuesday's trip along the A303

10 May 2021

Yeovil Town travel to Hampshire on Tuesday evening (7pm) to face Aldershot Town.

After defeat on the road against promotion chasing Wrexham, Darren Sarll will be hoping to bounce back against the Shots.

Tuesday’s hosts had a free weekend on Saturday but faced National League South side Ebbsfleet United in a friendly, falling to a 3-1 defeat.

 

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

Following Saturday’s game against Wrexham, Sarll spoke to BBC Somerset; “Mentally, I’m still not at my best, so I want to be considerate and show empathy, but I can’t say that forever.

“There’s a fragility to us at the moment, and it’s all coming at once, at a time which is already difficult for us all.

“If I could tell you the stories of injured or ill players, I couldn’t write it. Although, I thought the second half (against Wrexham) we looked great, I said at half time, this our problem as a team and we have to shoulder this as a team.”

 

Team news

Charlie Lee will be available for selection after serving his two-match suspension for picking up ten yellow cards.

An injury hit Yeovil will likely be without Albi Skendi, Matt Worthington, and Max Hunt due to injuries sustained on Saturday. 

This could provide another opportunity to play for 17-year-old Toby Stephens after making his debut against Wrexham.

 

A foot in the opposition camp

Aldershot, like Town have endured a mixed season, sitting level on points in 15th place, just ahead on goal difference. Danny Searle has been in charge of the Shots since May 2019 following a spell with Braintree, after a season of struggle in 18/19, Searle steadied the ship at the Ebb Stadium, bringing much needed calm following a season of narrowly avoiding the drop via a reprieve.

Josh Rees is the star man for the Hampshire outfit, hitting 12 goals from midfield this season, even scoring a memorable double against Weymouth last month.

MATCH REPORT | Aldershot Town - Yeovil Town

Defeat at the EBB Stadium

11 May 2021

Ten-man Yeovil Town fell to a defeat in Hampshire against Aldershot Town.

Chike Kandi’s second half goal opened the scoring for the hosts, before Alex Bradley’s red card made Yeovil’s evening increasingly difficult.

With less than ten minutes to go, Aldershot doubled their advantage through Harry Panayiotou securing a victory for Danny Searle’s side.

As injuries ravaged his squad, Darren Sarll’s side had a rather makeshift look to it. Whilst Adam Smith kept his record of starting every game this season, the defence saw Josh Neufville in an unfamiliar right back role alongside Billy Sass-Davies, Michael Kelly and Charlie Lee, who filled in at the middle of the defence.

The midfield saw returns for Emmanuel Sonupe and Alex Bradley, alongside Chris Dagnall and Tom Knowles. Joe Quigley and Reuben Reid combined up top.

It was an electric start in Hampshire with chances falling to both sides in quick succession.

The first for Town came Sonupe’s way in the sixth minute, after Knowles' long-throw was marshalled well, Yeovil recycled possession finding Sonupe in shooting range, but his effort was blocked.

Just one minute later, the Glovers found shooting room once again. Following some excellent combination between Knowles and Reid, the Glovers wide man burst through, but had his effort heroically cleared by the hosts' defence.

At the other end, it was almost a worldie for a host to open the scoring as Panayiotou fired wide of the mark on the volley.

Reid’s combination with those around him proved effective in the opening stages, holding the ball up to work space for Dagnall to burst through, but the 35-year-old had his effort saved by Mitch Walker’s legs.

As the half grew on, Aldershot enjoyed more of the ball in Town’s half, but offered very little in terms of goal mouth action.

At the break, despite Yeovil enjoying the better chances, neither team had done enough to claim the advantage.

In the opening stages of the second half, that opening goal came on 51 minutes, but unfortunately for Sarll’s side it was for Aldershot. A deep cross found Chike Kandi at the back post to bundle the ball past A.Smith.

Just four minutes later, Yeovil’s task became even more difficult as Bradley received his marching orders for a heavy challenge on Panayiotou.

The ten-man of Town did huff and puff but struggled to cope with the energy of Aldershot with the man advantage.

In terms of chances, Yeovil’s best fell to Knowles, who hammered an effort from the edge of the box over during the Glovers best spell of possession.

The hosts doubled their advantage with less than ten minutes to go, as Panayiotou made the most of the bodies Yeovil had thrown forward, smashing the ball beyond A.Smith and putting the game to bed.

Next up for Yeovil is a return to Huish Park to face King’s Lynn.

 

Yeovil Town: A.Smith; Neufville, Sass-Davies, Lee, Kelly; Bradley, Dagnall (Stephens), Knowles, Sonupe (D’Ath); Reid, Quigley.

Bookings: Alex Bradley (RED)
