Yeovil Town Vs Oldham Athletic, Sat 1 May 2010

Published Add your comment

Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton will hand a late fitness test to Dean Bowditch before naming his team to take on Oldham at Huish Park.

The former Ipswich striker is struggling with a groin injury and it remains to be seen whether he will recover in time to face the Latics.

On-loan Bristol City midfielder Gavin Williams is also a doubt after an ankle problem forced him off at half-time in last weekend`s 1-1 draw at Brentford.

Sam Williams and Aidan Downes are set to miss out once again with their respective knee injuries and Shaun McDonald (groin) is also likely to remain sidelined.

Yeovil are five points above the League One relegation zone with two games remaining and will hope to secure their League One status this weekend.

Oldham boss Dave Penney will be without midfielder Dean Furman.

Furman is struggling to overcome a knee injury sustained during the goalless draw at MK Dons on April 13.

The problem has continued to affect him and Penney has confirmed that Furman will not travel with the Latics squad.

However, Jim Goodwin and Chris Taylor have recovered from injury and both featured for the reserves in the midweek Lancashire Senior Cup win at Preston.

Goodwin, out for two-and-a-half months with a torn thigh muscle, played the opening half and reported no ill-effects.

Taylor, who has been ruled out of the last three matches through a slight tear to a calf muscle, completed 70 minutes without any problems.
