Competition: National League

Market: Yeovil win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Knowing that three points in midweek could really ease their relegation worries, Yeovil will make the trip to the Bob Lucas Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Weymouth might have managed to snatch a late point at home against fellow strugglers Eastleigh over the weekend, the Dorset outfit find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap when entering the New Year. Despite finding a breif break thanks to an FA Trophy victory against Maidenhead last month, the Terras have failed to win any of their last eight National League matchups on the bounce, a run that stems all the way back to October 31st. Already sat five points adrift of safety and managing to collect just a pair of points on their woeful run of form, Head Coach Brian Stock will have a real headache over his side’s extended issues on home soil. Along with mustering just a single point at the Bob Lucas Stadium in each of their last six home matchups, it should be noted that Tuesday’s struggling hosts have remarkably shipped a concerning 18 strikes on their winless run in Dorset.

As for the visitors, while many in Yeovil’s camp would have been concerned by their woeful 6-1 drumming at the hands of Torquay on Boxing Day, there is no doubt that the Glovers have bounced back in some style. Welcoming the league leaders to Huish Park over the weekend for their reverse showdown, Darren Sarll’s men landed a shock 2-1 victory on home soil and they will be desperate to keep up their recent momentum in midweek. Now collecting back-to-back National League victories against Torquay and a 3-0 romp against Aldershot, the Somerset outfit have won three of their last four fifth-tier appearances and they should be smelling a golden chance on Tuesday night. Skyrocketing their way out of the drop zone and landing a 2-1 victory the last time they faced off against Weymouth, we’re backing a similar away victory in midweek.
