Yeovil vs Hartlepool Prediction
Yeovil have certainly got off to a solid start in their campaign and have been at the losing end just twice in their previous ten games. At the moment, the hosts are on a three-match unbeaten streak, the most recent of which, saw them share the spoils with Boreham Wood in the National League.
Darren Sarll’s men have hit the ground running in the FA Cup as well. The squad made light work of Haringey in the previous round with a whopping 3-0 scorecard, that too on the road.
On the other hand, Hartlepool will be making the trip to Huish Park this week on the back of a 1-0 loss at the hands of Solihull Moors. Be that as it may, it is certainly worth mentioning that the defeat was only their first in five games.
Furthermore, the visiting contingent have lost just twice in their trips on the road so far this season. To make matters worse for the hosts, Hartlepool have been faring well in their past visits to this venue. The visitors have been securing the bragging rights in their last two meetings here, and have failed to come away with a win on just one occasion in their previous five matchups with this foe.
As such, Yeovil’s chances of getting the better of this foe are certainly look bleak. However, the hosts have been adamant in front of the home crowd. They have lost just once in their last seven games here.
Taking into account that Hartlepool have managed no more than a draw in half of their previous four outings too, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing the visitors, rather than Yeovil.
Additionally, neither side have kept a clean sheet in their last two h2h games here. Considering that the hosts have scored eleven goals from their previous five matchups here alone, count on Yeovil to go down swinging and to grab a consolation goal at the least.
