After Harrison Panayiotou’s last-gasp winner against Wrexham on Saturday, Aldershot Town play again at the EBB Stadium on Tuesday to host Yeovil Town.
Connor Laing previews the game:
Robbie Tinkler is available for selection again after serving his ban for an accumulation of yellow cards. Skipper Dean Rance remains on the side-lines with a tendon injury, whilst Alex Finney, James Rowe and Ollie O’Dwyer all gradually progressing towards returns from their own injuries.
Name: Yeovil Town
Nickname: The Glovers
Manager: Darren Sarll
Stadium: Huish Park
2018/19 National League position: n/a (Relegated from League Two in 24th position)
Yeovil Town were formed in 1895 and have adopted the nickname “The Glovers” after the history of glove-making in the town. They were relegated from the Football League in last season having been part of it since 2004. A 15-year run which included a very brief stint in the Championship during the 2012/13 season. They’ve started the season strongly back in the National League as they currently sit in 4th place.
Darren Sarll took charge of the Glovers in June following a spell in at the helm at Stevenage. Building up to his time as manager of Stevenage, Sarll had accumulated experience in a variety of roles at different clubs mostly based around Youth Development.
As expected, Yeovil’s squad has gone through a big transformation since relegation from the Football League. Key signings include new captain Lee Collins from League Two side Forest Green Rovers, midfielder Andrew Crofts and forward Rhys Murphy. However, their current top goal scorer isn’t a summer signing with Courtney Duffus, who joined in January, scoring four goals so far in this campaign.
Gary Parsons will be the man in charge for this encounter. It’ll be his fifth match of the campaign having so far awarded 12 yellow cards in 2019/20. He’ll be assisted by Paul Evans and Andy Bennett with Shelby Elson acting as fourth official.
BBC Surrey Sports Rob Worrall and Shots defender Alex Finney will be covering the game live on Tuesday evening. Tune in to the BBC Sport website (or the BBC Sport App) from 7:35pm for full match commentary. To interact with them, tweet @RobShot66.
