Yeovil Town Vs Bristol Rovers, Sat 20 Mar 2010

Published Add your comment

Yeovil central midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala could be fit to face Bristol Rovers at Huish Park.

Kalala missed the 1-0 defeat at Carlisle with a hip injury and his place went to new on-loan Reading midfielder Scott Davies, who impressed on his debut and is likely to keep his place.

Manager Terry Skiverton said: "We brought Scott in as soon as we knew JP would be missing because that could have left us light in midfield.

"But I think JP has a very good chance of being involved on Saturday."

On-loan Bristol City midfielder Gavin Williams misses out through suspension.

The Glovers, though, have been boosted by the arrival of on-loan teenage central defender Luke Ayling from Arsenal.

Rovers boss Paul Trollope is likely to name the same side for the fourth consecutive game.

Trollope's side slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Exeter on Wednesday, however the Rovers boss is likely to keep faith with his starting XI after suffering no fresh injuries or suspensions.

Defender Byron Anthony will therefore continue in defence having recently returned from a bruised leg, with on-loan Wolves defender Daniel Jones also set to continue having extended his stay until the end of the season.

Striker Andrew Williams impressed during his cameo last time out but is again likely to have to settle for a place on the bench given the recent form of Paul Heffernan and Jo Kuffour.

Rovers are 11 points shy of a place in the play-offs, with their defeat to the Grecians in midweek their first in their last five league games.
