Kalala ruled out for Glovers

Published Add your comment

Yeovil will have to make do without Jean-Paul Kalala when they welcome Walsall to Huish Park.

The midfielder must serve a one-match ban after he was sent off for two bookable offences in the Glovers' 1-0 defeat at Gillingham last Tuesday.

Manager Terry Skiverton is boosted by the return to fitness of central defender Terrell Forbes, who missed the recent home victory over Southend through illness.

Forbes was a non-playing substitute at Gillingham and will hope to be involved at some stage against the Saddlers.

Striker Dean Bowditch is also pushing for a starting berth after coming off the bench once again to feature at Priestfield.

Bowditch suffered a shoulder injury earlier in the season but is slowly working his way towards full fitness.

Walsall have no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game.

Midfielder Richard Taundry (hamstring) and full-back Jamie Vincent (calf) both returned to training last week but failed to make the bench for Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Brentford.

They continue to build up their match fitness but Tuesday's encounter is also expected to come too soon.

Defender Rhys Weston was substituted late into stoppage-time against the Bees due to cramp but he is expected to be okay.

Striker Sam Parkin came on for the final 12 minutes in place of Darren Byfield and did his chances of a start no harm at all.

The Saddlers are looking to get back to winning ways following their first defeat in six games.
