MATCH PREVIEW | Yeovil Town - Maidenhead United

Look ahead to Tuesday's match

16 May 2021

Yeovil Town welcome supporters back to Huish Park for competitive action for the first time since February 2020 as Maidenhead United visit Huish Park.

After victory on Saturday against King’s Lynn Town, attention turns to Maidenhead who have enjoyed a successful season in the National League this time out.

Following a season of struggle in 19/20, West Ham legend Alan Devonshire has guided the Magpies to 14thplace, with games in hand on the teams around them.

 

Darren Sarll’s thoughts

Speaking after victory over King’s Lynn Town, Sarll said; "(Luke) Wilkinson should never have been playing, like Lawson (D'Ath) against Aldershot, he put himself in harms way and got a bang on his knee. He could be done for Tuesday.

"We felt it was important after not scoring in three games, that we had a positive response and worry about Tuesday when it comes round. Wilkinson is up there with the very best players in our squad, he's a great guy and the fact that he put himself out there was great. 

"Watching him, I forgot Lawson had been out for three months, then I saw him stretching in the 87th minute, I was initally going to take (Tom) Knowles off, but thought I better get Lawson off. 

"I thought he was incredible, and what he does, something we've missed a lot this year, he brings calm to the chaos, and if he can't turn out naturally, he creates a way of doing it anyway. Doing that, it can turn the momentum of games in your favour as when the ball lands with Lawson, he's going to retain the ball and allow the team to change shape."

 

Team news

Yeovil Town will remain without Alex Bradley, after an unsuccessful appeal, he will serve the second game of his suspension against the Magpies.

Wilkinson nursed his way through 90 minutes on Saturday against King’s Lynn but told fans on Twitter that he thinks he should be fine to go again on Tuesday evening.

Josh Staunton remains a long-term absentee, whilst D’Ath made his full return in a starting berth against the Linnets.

Young midfielder Toby Stephens enjoyed a third cameo appearance on Saturday afternoon and will be hoping for his first in front of the Yeovil Town supporters on Tuesday evening.

 

A foot in the opposition camp

The 2020/21 season has been a step in the right direction for Maidenhead, after narrowly staying up on PPG in the last campaign, the Magpies have made real strides in their 150th year. A lot of this improvement can be attributed to the goals of Danilo Orsi-Dadomo & Sam Barratt, the two forwards have been on fire this season combining for a total of 32 pages between them. In his last game, Barratt struck three times against promotion hopefuls Hartlepool United, whilst Orsi-Dadomo was also on the scoresheet.

Former Glovers in the side include Shaun Donnellan who scored against Town last season for Woking.

MATCH REPORT | Yeovil Town - Maidenhead United

Town draw as fans return to Huish Park

18 May 2021

Ten-man Yeovil Town battled hard for a draw against Maidenhead United as supporters returned to Huish Park.

Luke Wilkinson received his marching orders in the second half, but it was an evening about the context off the pitch, rather than on it.

The safe return of supporters was a great success, with 1,497 Town faithful returning to Huish Park.

Darren Sarll opted for the 4-3-3 formation which brought success against King’s Lynn Town.

Adam Smith began in goal once again, with Carl Dickinson, Luke Wilkinson, Billy Sass-Davies, and Michael Kelly ahead of him.

Charlie Lee began the deepest of the midfield three, with Chris Dagnall and Lawson D’Ath either side of him. Josh Neufville and Tom Knowles flanked Joe Quigley.

With supporters returning to Huish Park for the first time in 444 days, it was always going to be an emotionally charged evening under the lights. There was hardly a dry eye in the house during the fourth minute’s applause in memory of our captain, Lee Collins.

In terms of chances, the best fell to Yeovil in the first half, the majority to Neufville who proved to be Town’s bright spark in the first half.

Playing his first game in front of the Huish Park faithful, Nefuville struck the bar in the 12th minute after he did excellently to cut onto his right foot.

On the ball, the Luton loanee continually caused the visitors defence problems, drifting beyond two markers in the 38th minute before the ball escaped his grasp.

The green and whites best chance fell in the 40th minute as a cross-field pass found Knowles breaking into the box, but his effort from close quarters was saved by James Holdon.

After the break, Town began brightly once again, winning a succession of corners which frustratingly led to nothing.

In a game that was demanding a piece of individual quality, Lee almost provided that, drifting through the Maidenhead team, only to be denied by a heroic block.

Town’s positivity was dampened in the 62nd minute as Wilkinson was sent off, receiving a second yellow card for seemingly punching the ball into the back of the net.

Despite this, Yeovil still looked for an opened, with the sponsors man of the match Lee striking the crossbar with a stunning effort on the volley.

In terms of chances for Maidenhead, A.Smith was rarely tested, only being called into action in the second half making a double save.

Ultimately, the rather drab result did little to dampen the feeling in the stands, with the Yeovil Town support, vocal and happy to be back where they belong.

 

Yeovil Town: A.Smith; Kelly, Wilkinson, Sass-Davies, Dickinson; Lee, Dagnall, D'Ath; Neufville (Sonupe), Knowles, Quigely

Bookings: Dagnall, Wilkinson (RED)

Subs not used: Evans, Heaton, Stephens, Reid.
