Mark Cooper made one change to the side that beat Truro City in mid-week. Jamie Sendles-White made the starting XI as Rhys Murphy dropped to the bench.
Yeovil opted for a 5-3-2 formation with Jake Wannell, Josh Staunton and Jamie Sendles-White in front of Will Buse. Alex Whittle and Morgan Williams were sat just in front of them while Charlie Cooper, Jordan Maguire-Drew and Matt Worthington were in the middle. Frank Nouble and Jake Hyde lead the attack.
On the bench was Jordan Young, Josh Owers, Zac Bell, Rhys Murphy and Olly Thomas.
Yeovil kicked off towards the home end.
The first half saw Yeovil in control of proceedings but they rarely threatened to take the lead. A few early chances from Charlie Cooper and Jake Hyde weren't taken and the game settled down with Yeovil dominating possession.
On 26 minutes a free kick from Jordan Maguire-Drew found Frank Nouble in the centre of goal seven yards out but he put his header way over the bar.
There was some confusion on 38 minutes when a long throw by Jamie Sendles-White was headed at goal by Morgan Williams but Lucas Covolan was able to claw the ball away on the goal line. The linesman initially appeared to be flagging for offside, which was very odd, but in the end a corner was given which came to nothing.
Half Time: Yeovil Town 0-0 Maidstone United
Maidstone made their first substitution on 53 minutes as Ogo Obi was replaced by Levi Amantchi.
Two minutes later, Maidstone were ahead. A corner from the right side was taken to the near post and Will Buse pushed the ball straight back into the danger area where Levi Amantchi was there to head home.
Yeovil made all three substitutes in one go on 65 minutes as Jake Hyde, Josh Staunton and Jordan Maguire-Drew were replaced by Olly Thomas, Jordan Young and Rhys Murphy.
Maidstone didn't look like scoring another goal and Yeovil were slowly beginning to put more pressure on their defence.
Maidstone made their second substitution on 79 minutes as Lamar Reynolds was replaced by Sol Wanjau-Smith.
With 7 minutes to go Yeovil were level when a corner from the right side fell to Rhys Murphy who fired it home.
Maidstone made their final substitution straight after as Bivesh Gurun was replaced by Conor Kelly.
Yeovil turned up the pressure in the last 5 minutes and with 7 minutes of added time the home fans were hoping for a repeat of Tuesday night. Unfortunately Yeovil weren't able to find the winner and the points were shared.
Full Time: Yeovil Town 1-1 Maidstone United
Today felt like one of those games where "if you aren't going to win it, don't lose it". Once again we weren't at our best and the substitutes came on and changed the game in our favour. We will need to be putting teams under pressure for more than the final 10 minutes and maybe it's time for a shake-up with the starting lineup.
Our next fixture is next Saturday when Tonbridge Angels visit Huish Park. Kick off is at 3:00PM.
