Hayes & Yeading United – W W W L L

The Martyrs are currently sitting 4th in the League table, whereas Hayes & Yeading have risen up to 14th in the league after some positive results in their last five, which lifted them away from the relegation zone.

Previous Result

Earlier this season, The Martyrs travelled to Hayes & Yeading in late October where both teams came away with a point, after an early penalty for the home team scored by former Southend United and Dartford striker, Norman Wabo. The Martyrs drew level thanks to a strong header from Liam Angel.
