Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton has a full squad to choose from for the crucial derby match against Bristol Rovers.

Luke Ayling returned from suspension for the 1-0 victory over Carlisle and was introduced from the bench for the last 11 minutes.

He could be handed a start but Skiverton is likely to stick with the same side that defeated the Cumbrians, especially after keeping a clean sheet.

With the Glovers 10 points ahead of Rovers and seven points clear of the drop zone, Skiverton believes a win could secure their npower League One status.

"It's an important time of the season and a big game for us. It's a local derby and we need to get a result," he told the official club site.

Yeovil have won three games in a row but their opponents have won their last two away games without conceding a goal.

Bristol Rovers caretaker manager Stuart Campbell has no fresh injury concerns for the game.

Defender Byron Anthony made his comeback from an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw against Peterborough.

The 26-year-old had missed the previous three games and could again line up to boost Rovers as they bid to escape the npower League One relegation zone.

Jeff Hughes and Jo Kuffour were both on the scoresheet against Posh and will retain their places.

Campbell admitted he was unlikely to make any tactical changes after seeing his side take four points from their last two matches.

Leicester loanee Conrad Logan will continue in goal for the Pirates, with Mike Green having to settle for a place on the bench.
