Yeovil Town vs Hartlepool United
Who? Yeovil Town vs Hartlepool United in the English FA Cup First Round 2019/20
Where? Huish Park, Yeovil
When? 19:45 GMT, Tuesday 12th November 2019
The final match in the First Round of the FA Cup will see former Football League sides Yeovil Town and Hartlepool United go head-to-head at Huish Park.
The Glovers are having a strong season after relegation from the Football League last season. They have won nine of their last 12 league games, scoring three goals in six of those fixtures. Defeats having only been by a narrow goal, and they are the clear favourites for this cup clash. One of their defeats came against their opponents Hartlepool, so Yeovil will be out to avenge. The winner of this game will face either Cambridge United or Exeter City, who will compete in a replay next week.
For Pools, they have seen their season marred with inconsistency so far. Hartlepool have been out of the Football League for three seasons so far and sit 14th in the National League table. They announced a new manager over the weekend, former AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor. In terms of results, Hartlepool have only lost one of their last five games in all competitions. Across the last 15 games, they have seven wins, four draws and four defeats. Whilst they have struggled to put a winning streak together, they have scored in each of the last seven away games.
Hartlepool got a very dramatic victory last time out at Victoria Park. After a 91st minute equaliser from Yeovil, Pools went down the other end and scored in the 92nd minute.
Previous meetings have been very close between the sides, however, Hartlepool have won by a 2-1 scoreline in four of the last five meetings.
