Preview: Yeovil Town vs. Maidenhead United - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's National League clash between Yeovil Town and Maidenhead United, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Yeovil Town will welcome Maidenhead United to Huish Park on Tuesday evening in the National League and the hosts enter the fixture in 14th position, after accumulating nine points this season.

Maidenhead are two points worse off than their opponents, despite playing two games more, which leaves them in 18th place.

Yeovil have only played six league games this term and three wins have left them in a mid-table position.

The Glovers do enter the fixture on the back of two straight defeats in the league and they will look to get back to winning ways on Tuesday.

Their last outing was on September 25 when they travelled to Meadow Park to face Boreham Wood, which ended in a 2-1 defeat despite Dale Gorman giving Yeovil the lead in that fixture.

Darren Sarll's side will aim to improve on a home record that has seen The Glovers only win once at Huish Park this season, while they have suffered two defeats on home turf.

If Yeovil are to collect three points on Tuesday then the goalscoring touch of Joe Quigley will be important, with the 24-year-old looking to add to the five goals he has already scored in the National League this term.

Maidenhead collected six of their seven points this season in their first two games thanks to wins over Halifax Town and Dover Athletic.

Since then Maidenhead have endured a poor run of form that has seen them lose five of their last six games and in that period they have only managed to pick up one point.

At the weekend, the Magpies thought they had salvaged a point in the first minute of stoppage time after Sam Barratt scored from the spot, but Brett McGavin scored a minute later to steal the three points for King's Lynn Town with a 3-2 victory.

Maidenhead will look to improve on an away record that has seen them only win one away game this season, while they have suffered two defeats on their travels.

The Magpies have played three competitive fixtures against Yeovil in their history and have never lost against The Glovers, which will give Alan Devonshire and his side confidence heading into Tuesday's fixture.

Adi Yussuf was sent off for Yeovil in their last fixture against Boreham Wood, and the 29-year-old will miss Tuesday's game through suspension.

Yeovil signed Ben Seymour and Jordan Dyer on a one-month loan from Exeter City last week and Seymour could come into the starting lineup to replace the suspended Yussuf.

However, Dyer may have to settle for a place on the bench against Maidenhead.

Maidenhead are likely to be without Will De Havilland after the 26-year-old had to come off in the first half against King's Lynn.

De Havilland's absence could mean there is a place in the starting lineup for Manny Parry.

Yeovil Town possible starting lineup:
Smith; Moss, Staunton, Hunt, Barnett; Wakefield, Gorman, Worthington, Knowles; Quigley, Seymour

Maidenhead United possible starting lineup:
Lovett; Massey, Parry, Donnellan, Barratt; Ferdinand, Adams, Upward, Beckwith; Acquah, Kelly

SM words green background

We say: Yeovil Town 2-0 Maidenhead United

Both sides will be low on confidence after a poor run of results, but Yeovil will be the fresher side and we think the hosts will have enough to beat a team that has not won since August.
