Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton is set to name an unchanged starting line-up for the game against play-off chasing Southampton.

The Glovers pushed third-placed Millwall all the way in a 1-1 home draw on Tuesday and now Skiverton wants the same again against the Saints, looking all set to keep the faith with the same players.

Skiverton is again set to be without target man Sam Williams (knee) so Dean Bowditch, who opened the scoring on Tuesday is again set to lead the line after shrugging off a knock to pass fit to face Millwall.

The Glovers have also been boosted by young Arsenal teenage defender Luke Ayling extending his loan stay at Huish Park for the final month of the season.

Ayling was an unused sub against Millwall and looks set to be on the bench once again.

Radhi Jaidi could return to the Southampton squad.

The Tunisian defender has missed the last two matches after suffering a hamstring strain earlier this month but he has resumed training and is set to challenge Dan Seaborne for his spot at centre-back.

Fellow centre-half Wayne Thomas is also on the mend but is not quite ready to return from the calf injury which has sidelined him for a month. Full-back Graeme Murty is still missing with ankle ligament damage.

Saints suffered no new injuries during Tuesday night's 5-1 win at Bristol Rovers so boss Alan Pardew is unlikely to tinker too much with his starting line-up.

That means strikers Lee Barnard, Papa Waigo and David Connolly - who have scored 41 goals between them this season - are set to start on the bench again.
