Yeovil Town are on the road this week, with a trip to Maidenhead United on Tuesday evening.

After a spirited performance on Saturday afternoon, the Glovers were unable to find a win against Notts County, but must take positives from their showing against the league leaders, as Town were just the second team to better Notts’ territory stats.

Tuesday’s hosts, Maidenhead sit just one point above Mark Coopers side, but having played two more games, makes this an important clash at the bottom end of the table.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Speaking after the game on Saturday, Cooper said; “They’re very important. We have very small numbers and have expended a lot of energy today (vs. Notts County).

“We need to make sure the players, somehow, recover. We’ll get (Will) Dawes to do a few rubs because he’s qualified, Staunton can do a bit of physio, and we’ll have a bit of fun before Tuesday.”

Team news

Speaking on Saturday, Mark Cooper stated that he expected Jordan Maguire-Drew to be available on Tuesday evening, but the Glovers were likely to be without Chiori Johnson through injury. He joins Max Hunt and Charlie Wakefield on the injury list for Town.

On the suspension front, Owen Bevan will serve the final game of his ban on Tuesday, having sat out since his sending off against Wealdstone.

A foot in the opposition camp

Although often tipped for relegation at the start of the season by many, Maidenhead United seem to always find a way to survive as one of the few remaining part-time teams left in the division.

Managed by West Ham United legend Alan Devonshire, his side have always proved tricky opposition for the Glovers and will no doubt be a stern test on Tuesday night.

Emile Acquah has been the source of goals for Maidenhead this term, hitting 9 goals in 30 games so far this season.

Have we met before?

Yeovil Town have found Maidenhead somewhat of a bogey team since returning to the National League in 19/20.

The Glovers are yet to beat the Magpies since then, with the last four meetings having ended in draws.

Maidenhead’s last win came in the 20/21 season, as they were the 4-2 victors at York Road, in a game taken by Terry Skiverton due to a COVID outbreak amongst the coaching staff.

Earlier this season, Yeovil were held to a 0-0 draw at Huish Park in Mark Cooper’s first home game as manager.
