Gavin Williams is set to make his second debut for Yeovil when they play host to Hartlepool.

Williams, who enjoyed a successful spell with the Glovers between 2002 and 2004, returned to Huish Park on loan from Bristol City on Thursday and is expected to go straight into Terry Skiverton`s starting line-up.

Skiverton is waiting on the fitness of striker Dean Bowditch, who missed last weekend`s 3-0 defeat at Norwich with a hamstring injury.

Bowditch was expected to return against the Canaries but failed to prove his fitness and it remains to be seen whether he will feature this weekend.

Aidan Downes will hope to be involved again after making his first appearance of the season as a second half substitute at Carrow Road.

Downes has been sidelined with knee and shoulder injuries but is now working his way towards full fitness.

Hartlepool will be without striker Denis Behan for the long trip south.

Behan suffered ligament damage in the same ankle which ruled him out earlier this season during the reserves` defeat at Rotherham this week and he could be out for up to six weeks.

However, the Irishman has not been starting for the first team recently, with Adam Boyd forging a promising partnership with Behan`s fellow countryman Roy O`Donovan.

O`Donovan scored a clinical hat-trick in Pools` 3-0 win at home to Southend last time out and will continue in attack.

Director of sport Chris Turner has no other injury or suspension concerns, with forward James Brown likely to continue his recovery from a serious knee injury off the bench.
