WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
After victory on Saturday, Shots are back on the road, travelling to Huish Park to take on Yeovil. Yeovil are currently sat 20th in the National League, 1 point behind the Shots with 13 from their opening 14 fixtures.
HOW DID THEY DO LAST SEASON?
Last season Yeovil finished in 12th place, earning 59 points from 44 games. The FA Cup saw a run to the 3rd round for Yeovil, beating Stevenage in the 2nd round before losing to Bournemouth 3-1 in the 3rd. The FA Trophy saw Yeovil make it to the 4th round, beating Woking in the 3rd round, but eventually losing to Needham Market on penalties in the 4th round.
HOW DID WE GET ON AGAINST THEM LAST SEASON?
Neither side was able to prevail at home last season, with Yeovil picking up a 2-1 victory in August at the EBB, thanks to a late Joe Quigley penalty. Shots were able to win in the return fixture, with goals from Giles Phillips and Ryan Glover enough to earn a 2-0 victory and all 3 points for Aldershot.
WHO IS THEIR GAFFER?
Chris Hargreaves is currently in charge of Yeovil, taking charge of the side in May this year. Hargreaves made over 600 senior appearances during his playing days, playing 151 times for Northampton Town between 2000-2004. Hargreaves first job as a manager came at Torquay, where he was unable to keep the side in the Football League in the 14-15 season, and in 2016 went on to manage Bristol Rovers u21s, before being appointed manager of Yeovil in May.
YEOVIL SQUAD UPDATE:
Grant Smith and Josh Staunton are Hargeaves’ most used players so far this season, both starting and playing all 14 fixtures, with both also likely to start on Tuesday night. Morgan Williams and new signing from Wycombe Malachi Linton have also started and played the opening 14 fixtures, putting them in contention to start on Tuesday. Matt Worthington, as well as new duo Jamie Reckford from Boreham Wood and Ben Richards-Everton from Barnet have also played over 900 minutes so far this season, meaning all three of them are likely set to feature.
With no absentees through suspension or injury, Yeovil will have their strongest 11 at their disposal.
Centre-back Max Hunt made 21 appearances during the 19/20 season at Aldershot, scoring 1 goal against current club Yeovil in a 3-1 loss of September that season. Gime Touré also played for Aldershot, making 3 appearances last season, failing to score in any of his appearances while on loan at the Shots.
