After a week away, Yeovil Town return to National League action to face Maidenhead United at Huish Park on Tuesday evening (7:45pm).

With no game at the weekend, Mark Cooper has had a full week on the training pitch with his new side.

Maidenhead meanwhile were dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of fellow National League side Dagenham & Redbridge.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

After a defeat to Woking last time out, Cooper said; ”We have to try and develop more patterns of play that help create chances.” With a clear week on the training pitch, he’ll be hoping his side’s hard work can pay off against Maidenhead.

Team news

The boss last spoke following last week’s defeat to Woking, where he confirmed that he hoped he’d have the majority of current injuries back.

The main concern was Lawson D’Ath who was most likely to miss this week’s game.

That means the likes of Matt Worthington could return for the midweek clash against the Magpies.

A foot in the opposition camp

Although often tipped for relegation at the start of the season by many, Maidenhead United always find a way. 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.

Despite the loss of star man Josh Kelly to Maidenhead in the Summer, the Magpies sit in 16th place with 20 points on the board so far this season.

Have we met before?

Maidenhead have been a consistent banana skin for Yeovil Town since returning to the National League, with the Glovers yet to beat the Magpies.

Last season, the two sides played out two draws, including a goalless clash at Huish Park followed by a 1-1 draw at York Road.
