Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the National League table, Boreham Wood will make the trip to Yeovil on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Yeovil might have thrown away their late lead at home against Chesterfield last weekend, Chris Hargreaves’ men should be looking to build off of those positives. Eventually playing out an action-packed 2-2 draw against the promotion contenders, the Glovers do still find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. Opening Saturday’s showdown in Somerset with just their goal difference keeping them outside the drop zone, Yeovil have also won just one of their first nine National League matchups. Knowing that they could face another stern test when Boreham Wood arrives in town this weekend, it should be noted that Hargreaves’ men have shown some extended issues on home soil. In fact, continuing on from last season, they have picked up just a single victory at Huish Park since back on April 23rd.
As for the visitors, mounting a second-half comeback away at Gateshead last weekend as they eventually played out a 1-1 draw, Boreham Wood appear in pole position to clinch another play-off spot. Unbeaten in each of their last six National League outings, a run that stems back to August 16th, Luke Garrard’s men will be smelling the chance to lay down another marker on Saturday afternoon. With their impressive run of form highlighted by a 4-1 romp away at Dover last month, the Hertfordshire-based outfit have also continued to shine with their performances on the road. Mustering 13 points from their first five National League matchups away from Meadow Park, we could be in for a lively affair here. With three of the past four meetings between Saturday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the, we’re backing a similar outcome.
Bet: Both teams to score at Yeovil vs Boreham Wood 10/11 for Saturday’s Nations League matchup @ 888sport
