When Barnet hosts Yeovil Town in a National League match on Tuesday, the Bees will be hoping to keep rolling.
The home team defeated Wealdstone in their last game, while the visitors came from a scoreless draw against Scunthorpe United.
Barnet vs Yeovil Town National League Match Preview
Barnet has made significant improvements in 2022-23 under manager Dean Brennan and is fifth in the National League standings with 36 points from 20 matches played.
The Bees significantly improved from their performance in 2021-22 when they finished up in 18th place, placing themselves squarely in the mix to contend for a playoff berth.
With goals from Harry Pritchard and Nicke Kabamba, Barnet cruised to a 2-0 National League home win over Wealdstone in their most recent outing.
Barnet will play on Tuesday, hoping to maintain their impressive home success in the league, where they have won seven games and drawn once in eleven attempts.
Should the host’s Barnet get three points in midweek, they might overtake Woking into the fourth spot if other results in the division go their way.
On the other hand, Yeovil has had a less-than-stellar season so far and entered their match against Barnet just five points out of the basement.
They haven’t been very good in front of goal this season, scoring only 17 times. That’s the fewest goals scored in the National League.
Surprisingly, Yeovil does not let in many goals either, as they have only conceded 20 goals all season long in 21 games, suitable for joint-second best in the league.
Most recently, they played at home against Scunthorpe, finishing in a scoreless draw. Neither team had many good scoring chances in the game.
Mark Cooper will look for a stronger showing from his team against Barnet in their next game as Yeovil attempts to get farther away from the relegation zone.
Barnet vs Yeovil Town National League Team News
Barnet is unlikely to make too many changes heading into their encounter against Yeovil on Tuesday, given their authoritative display in the 2-0 victory over Wealdstone.
The back five of Sam Beard, Jerome Okimo, Louie Annesley, Danny Collinge, and Ben Wynter will likely not change, and Laurie Walker will start in goal.
Again, Idris Kanu and Nicke Kabamba will combine in an attack, but Harry Pritchard’s ban hangs in the balance if he receives a yellow card.
Yeovil, the visitors, might try a new offensive strategy to help them score more goals in their next games.
Malachi Linton might replace Louis Britton in the attack, while Andrew Oluwabori could start at left wing in place of Charlie Wakefield.
If Ben Richards-Everton or Lawson D’Ath get a yellow card against Barnet, they will be suspended for the next game.
- Barnet Prediction Starting Lineup: Beard, Annesley, Walker, Okimo, Wynter, De Havilland, Collinge, Gorman, Kanu, Pritchard, Kabamba.
