Match Preview: Yeovil Town (A)

26 March 2021

The Bees make the trip to Somerset as they take on Yeovil Town for the second time in just over three weeks.

FIXTURE DETAILS

Yeovil Town FC vs Barnet FC

Saturday 27th March 2021, 15:00 KO

Huish Park

Vanarama National League

THE GLOVERS

League Position: 14th (P31 W11 D6 L14)

Last Result: Yeovil 2-2 Notts County (Tuesday 23rd March 2021)

Manager: Darren Sarll

Club Captain: Lee Collins

Like a large number of teams in the division, Yeovil carry a chance at the playoffs, even if it is a slim one, considering their current position in the table being 14th with the joint most games played in the league.

Prior to the game at the Hive, the Glovers were looking like they could build up some real momentum and were one of the form teams in the National League. However, since their 4-1 win over the Bees, they have only won once in the six games they have played, conceding 12 goals, which has led to them losing their grip on the top seven and something the Bees may be able to take advantage of.

On the other hand, when you’ve got one of the league’s top goal scorers in your ranks, you will always pose a threat and luckily for the Glovers, they have that man in the form of Rhys Murphy who is currently on 12 goals in 26 appearances for the season and caused the Bees all sorts of problems when he last played against them.

THE BEES

The Bees will head to Huish Park with Gary Anderson in caretaker charge, as he oversees First Team affairs whilst the Club continue the process of recruiting a new coaching team following the departure of Tim Flowers. Anderson will want his players to play with similar freedom to the performances put in under Paul Fairclough in our previous two away matches against Bromley and Stockport County respectively. It will be a big challenge for the Bees who will be hoping to have the previously injured Anthony Wordsworth and JJ Hooper back in the fold. Meanwhile, we will definitely be without the suspended Ben Richards-Everton and Alex McQueen who is away on international duty with Grenada.

Match Reports

Match Report : Yeovil Town 3-1 Barnet FC

27 March 2021

After a blitzing first half showing from Yeovil Town, the Bees fell to defeat at Huish Park.

The hosts started with the majority of possession at a blustery Huish Park, albeit they found the Bees backline in stern mood in the opening five minutes. Their best chance fell the way of Chris Dagnall, as he capitalised on a defensive mix up only to be denied by a great challenge from Liam Daly. 

The host's pressure soon told after ten minutes, as Tom Knowles glided through the Bees backline before cooly firing into the bottom corner from 18 yards. It was a neat turn that fooled the Bees but they'll feel it was all too easy for the host's creative midfielder. 

The Bees had their best spell of the match following the goal and looked dangerous on the counter-attack, with JJ Hooper flashing some warning signs as he broke through only to be denied by the offside flag. 

However, it would be Darren Sarll's side who would go two to the good on 25 minutes, as the Bees failed to properly clear a long throw-in before the resulting delivery was struck home by Charlie Lee. 

They almost had a third on the 30-minute mark, as defender Lee Dickinson found himself space in the six-yard box, only for his effort to be cleared from the line by Daly. 

It was soon three for the Glovers, as more slack Barnet defending allowed Josh Neufville to fire home from 20 yards via the inside of the post. 

The Bees came out for the second half and put in a much improved showing, albeit without testing the Glovers 'keeper. The best opening fell to JJ Hooper who had been fed through by Tomi Adeloye, only for the flag to once again stop him in his tracks.

We did have one back with 25 minutes left on the watch as Lee Vaughan's cross was headed home by Themis Kefalas, after the Bees took a clever short corner. 

Gary Anderson's men were better in the second half and whilst they got into some threatening positions they didn't threaten the Yeovil goal. Although, Azaze was mostly a spectator in the second half, with the hosts settling on their two-goal cushion as the game entered its latter stages. 

The Bees did have a chance to make it a grandstand finish as a free-kick was headed only as far as Petrasso who fired over from ten yards out.

Ultimately, despite a spirited second half showing from the Bees, the damage was done by the Glovers in the first half who richly deserved their win at Huish Park. 

Barnet: Azaze, Preston, Petrasso, Hooper (Faal 76'), Kefalas, H Taylor, McBurnie, Adeloye, Mason-Clark (Vasiliou 80'), Vaughan, Daly (c)

Subs not used: Callan, Wordsworth, Nugent.
