Yeovil Town Vs Colchester United, Tue 16 Feb 2010

Published Add your comment

Yeovil are set to be boosted by the return of two key players ahead of their clash against Colchester.

Midfielder JP Kalala comes back into contention following a two-match suspension, which saw him miss the 4-1 win at Wycombe and Saturday's goalless home draw with Gillingham.

Forward Gavin Tomlin also missed Saturday's draw - after failing a late fitness test - but is expected to be back in contention as Terry Skiverton's Glovers bid to make it three games unbeaten in a row.

Tomlin's place on Saturday went to Ryan Mason, who was replaced by substitute Keiran Murtagh in the 80th minute. Mason's recall was the only change to the side that started the win at Wycombe.

The original fixture between Yeovil and Colchester was snowed off in early January.

Colchester will check on Kevin Lisbie and Christian Ribeiro ahead of the trip.

Striker Lisbie has been struggling with a thigh injury which has kept him out of the last three games and full-back Ribeiro missed Saturday's draw at Stockport with a groin strain.

Defender Paul Reid was fit enough for a place on the bench at the weekend following a groin injury and should be involved again, although Matt Heath has impressed in his absence.

Winger Ashley Vincent is close to returning after five months out with an ankle injury.

Vincent has come through a reserve game unscathed but was not risked at Stockport and may be given another run-out for the second string before being considered.
