Yeovil are set to be boosted by the return of striker Sam Williams ahead of their League One home game against promotion-chasing Charlton.

Williams (groin) was ruled out of the 1-0 home win over Southend last weekend, when fit-again striker Dean Bowditch scored the winner seven minutes after his 70th minute introduction.

With Gavin Tomlin also fit - and featuring as a substitute against Southend - Glovers boss Terry Skiverton is set to have a handful of strikers ready for selection.

The Glovers boss has also been boosted by the return from injury of central defender Stefan Stam, who made his comeback last week.

Central defender Terrell Forbes (illness) and on-loan Swansea midfielder Shaun MacDonald (thigh) are set to be fit for the meeting with Phil Parkinson's men.

Frazer Richardson has been ruled out of Charlton's trip to Somerset.

The right-back suffered a recurrence of his hamstring trouble during Saturday's 5-1 win over MK Dons and has been sent to see a specialist.

Elliot Omozusi, the recent loan signing from Fulham, is set to deputise again.

Goalkeeper Rob Elliot is close to returning from an adductor injury but boss Parkinson does not want to bring him back too soon so Wolves loanee Carl Ikeme keeps his place.

Striker Izale McLeod serves the final game of his three-match ban but Parkinson has plenty of options in attack with Deon Burton, Jonjo Shelvey, David Mooney, Akpo Sodje and Leon McKenzie vying for two places.

Defender Chris Solly and midfielder Dean Sinclair (both knee) are still out, although the latter is back in training.
