Since the 3-1 setback against Dorking Wanderers in the middle of September, the Magpies have won each of their past four league games, defeating York City, Altrincham, Wrexham, and Woking. However, Notts County will enter this game coming off a shocking loss, falling to Coalville Town 3-2 at home on Saturday in the FA Cup’s fourth qualifying round.
As they resume league play, Luke Williams’ team will be eager to put the loss behind them. A win here would enable them to pass Wrexham by four points, despite having played one more game. Needham Market, a team that competes in the Southern League Premier Division Central, defeated Maidstone 1-0 in the meanwhile.
We state: Maidstone United 0–2 Notts County
After their team’s dismal FA Cup performance the previous time out, Maidstone’s supporters will be anticipating a comeback from their team. However, given Notts County’s outstanding league run, we anticipate a comparatively easy home victory.
Head to head
The same starting lineup that competed in Notts County’s 3-2 victory against Woking in Surrey on October 8 may be used by head coach Williams.
In a great showing, Cedwyn Scott scored twice, and Ruben Rodrigues and Macaulay Langstaff are anticipated to join him in the last third of the field.
Williams is anticipated to return to his tried-and-true lineup from the league despite the extensive alterations made for the FA Cup encounter against Coalville Town on Saturday.
With regard to Maidstone, head coach Hayrettin hopes to start the same team that performed better than expected against Halifax in the league on October 8.
There will be changes from the rather strong XI that the Stones fielded against Needham Market in the FA Cup, but James Alabi, who has scored twice this season in the league, is among those expected to return.
- Chicksen, Rawlinson, Brindley, Cameron
- Bajrami, Palmer, Nemane
- Langstaff, Rodrigues, Scott
- Hoyte, Ellul, Barkers, Galvin
- Mensah, Deacon, Corne, Booty
- Alabi, Barham
Our knowledgeable tipster friends at Sportsunfold anticipate a home victory in this game.
