Swindon manager Danny Wilson insists that in-form striker Charlie Austin will be fit for the clash with Yeovil.

Austin grabbed his sixth goal in as many starts for the Robins in the 2-2 draw at Charlton before limping off 10 minutes from time.

However Wilson believes the injury was nothing major.

"Austin got a knock but it is only a minor injury. He'll definitely be available for Monday," said Wilson.

Kevin Amankwaah recovered from a stomach upset to play the full match against Charlton and is set to keep his place in the side.

Striker Lloyd Macklin should be on the bench again as he works on his rehabilitation from a leg fracture.

Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton is poised to make changes to his winning line-up.

Skiverton made one enforced change to his starting line up for the 4-0 home win over Wycombe following the 1-1 draw at Hartlepool.

Central midfielder Keiran Murtagh celebrated his recall with Yeovil's opener after replacing Shaun MacDonald, whose has returned to parent club Swansea at the end of his Glovers' loan spell.

Skiverton admitted his substitutions in the win over Wycombe "enhanced the team" and Jon Obika will be hoping his performance will have caught the manager's eye.

On-loan Tottenham forward Obika set up Yeovil's second goal and scored himself within seven minutes of his 66th-minute introduction in place striker Dean Bowditch.

Obika is likely to start at the County Ground as Skiverton's men look to continue their ascent up the table.
