Gavin Williams returns to the Yeovil squad for the televised home game against Leeds.

The on-loan Bristol City midfielder has completed a three-match ban after being sent off in the 4-0 home win over Hartlepool - his second debut for the club.

Williams is likely to go straight back into Terry Skiverton's starting line-up, but there are doubts over the fitness of JP Kalala, who missed Saturday's goalless draw at Southend through injury.

The Glovers could also be without target man Sam Williams once again as he continues to struggle with a knee injury.

If Williams misses out, Gavin Tomlin is likely to continue alongside Dean Bowditch, with Aidan Downes starting on the right flank.

Yeovil are five points clear of the relegation zone going into Monday's game.

Leeds manager Simon Grayson is ready to make changes after seeing his side slip to four straight league defeats.

Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems but faces a huge task lifting his players for the seven-game run-in with automatic promotion now a four-horse race.

Luciano Becchio missed Saturday's home defeat to Swindon due to concussion but the Argentinian could return to contention, while Sanchez Watt, on loan from Arsenal, is ready to make his first appearance in a Leeds shirt.

Mike Grella stepped in for Becchio alongside Jermaine Beckford on Saturday and will be hoping for an extended run in the side, while defender Ben Parker made his first appearance since the opening day of the season when replacing Richard Naylor with half-an-hour remaining.

Grayson will be hoping Parker came through unscathed and that his side can break their scoring drought after failing to hit the net in their last four matches.
