Altrincham vs Maidenhead United Match Analysis & Prediction
13/12/2022 10:45 pm
Two National League sides currently separated by a single point in the table have an opportunity to inch closer to a playoff berth as Altrincham host Maidenhead United on Tuesday.
The hosts are unbeaten in their last five domestic matches, claiming a 3-2 victory over Maidstone United on Saturday, while Maidenhead lost 4-3 to the league leaders Notts County in their previous encounter.
Altrincham never seem to make it easy on themselves, but they keep finding ways to earn results in the end, winning for the third time since November by a single goal last Saturday.
While their current run has seen them get back in the playoff conversation, trailing Solihull Moors by four points in seventh, they have kept their matches a little too close for comfort.
Head coach Phil Parkinson has seen his side concede within the final five minutes in three of their last four matches, allowing an 85th-minute goal from Regan Booty on Saturday, leading to a nervy final few minutes.
Altrincham have not lost in 2022-23 when scoring multiple goals, and they have needed that kind of consistency in the attacking third, given their struggles in defence, conceding 42 goals to this point of the campaign, the fifth-most in the division this season.
Meanwhile, Maidenhead gave the top side in the National League quite the scarem conceding three times in the opening half but drawing level on two occasions before Notts County finally scored the winner in the 83rd minute.
Alan Devonshire’s side have been resilient over the past few games, conceding some early opening goals in three straight league matches. However, they have not succeeded when trailing at the half all season.
Maidenhead failed to score in their first five away games of the 2022-23 domestic campaign but they come into the contest with points in four of their last six league matches on the road.
So far this season, they have only managed to win one away game against a National League side currently in the top 10, defeating third-placed Chesterfield FC 2-1 at the beginning of October.
However, Maidenhead have not had much success away from home lately, having managed to keep their away matches tight, with points in two of their last three games, while their previous eight matches as the visitors were decided by a goal or fewer.
Altrincham vs. Maidenhead United Head to head
