Yeovil come to Underhill on Tuesday night to face a Barnet team who are looking for their fifth win in a row.

Barnet, currently lying fifth in the league, face tough opposition from the team from Somerset. They have climbed to seventh in the league after three wins on the trot, the last at home to Leigh on Saturday winning 2-1.

Their away form is better than at home, having lost only once and winning four, with one draw, although their Goal Difference is only +1 (For = 10, Against = 9). Their best away result this season is at Hereford where they won 2-0.

At home, they have won twice, drawn once and lost three. Goals For = 9, Against = 11. The two wins both being 2-1.

Yeovil have a long Conference history, having been in it for 17 years of its 22 years existence. Last season was their highest ever finish, second place, beaten only by Rushden and Diamonds. They have been relegated twice, but came back up a couple of seasons later each time.

They have a good home following, averaging just under 2800 a game so far this season.

Hopefully they’ll bring a large contingent with them on Tuesday night, so make sure you’re there for what promises to an exciting near the top of the table clash, with the winner ending higher in the league.
