Yeovil striker Jon Obika is waiting to find out if he will need surgery on a knee injury.
The forward will be out for a minimum of a month, but Yeovil fear it may be worse.
And the news has left boss Terry Skiverton searching for new faces.
"Jon at the moment has got to rest for four weeks. He will go back and see a surgeon and then we go from there," Skiverton told the Western Gazette.
"It is a real blow to us, but we have to make sure now that Steve MacLean and Kieran Agard are as fit as they can be.
"We may be looking to bring in a striker to back up those two, to make sure we've got that strength in depth."
