Yeovil Town Prediction – Can Yeovil gain revenge?

It’s been a successful campaign for Yeovil Town so far in the National League following last season’s bitter disappointment of relegation from League Two, but Darren Sarll’s side have shown character and resilience by bouncing back this term and The Glovers now sit in 2nd place in the non-league top flight after some impressive displays.

Yeovil have suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 13 matches in all competitions and this impressive upturn in form has resulted in the west country outfit racking up 10 wins during this period, and this has thrust them into automatic promotion contention.

Nevertheless, one of the aforementioned defeats was to tonight’s FA Cup opponents, Hartlepool United as they were dealt a 2-1 loss at Victoria Park in the National League, so Yeovil will no doubt be keen to avenge this loss tonight at their Huish Park.

However, National League matches are tough to call at the best of times but throw in the magic of the FA Cup and it’s perhaps best to swerve the straight win markets as there’s value in the goals markets instead – 11 of Yeovil Town’s last 15 matches overall have seen both teams score.

Hartlepool United Prediction – Can Hartlepool progress?

A 1-0 home win over National League North outfit, Brackley Town, saw Hartlepool United progress to the FA Cup 1st round proper where they’ll prepare for the long trip down to the west country to face an in-form Yeovil Town side who are currently flying high in the National League.

Although Hartlepool currently occupy a disappointing 14th place on the National League ladder, The Pools have lost just 2 of their last 9 matches overall and recent form has certainly seen the north-east outfit improve their fortunes with wins over tonight’s opponents, Yeovil Town, as well as subsequent victories against Aldershot and Barnet in the league.

Results away from home have been okay too as Antony Sweeney’s side have lost just 3 matches on the road so far this season but have gained just 1 win out of their last 5 trips, so the straight win markets should also be avoided where Hartlepool are concerned.

Instead, 5 of Hartlepool’s last 7 away matches have seen both teams score and this seems the best bet for this FA Cup tie, especially as the visitors possess the likes of Toure (7 goals) and Kabamba (4 goals) up front.


Key-Facts – Yeovil Town vs Hartlepool United
