Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton will wait on the fitness of Paul Wotton before naming his squad for the home clash against Notts County.

The 33-year-old midfielder missed Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Hartlepool after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring injury, but he will be given as much time as possible to declare his fitness.

The Glovers boss has no other injury or suspension problems, but could be tempted to make changes following two successive defeats.

Ed Upson and veteran midfielder Alex Russell, 38, are pushing for recalls following substitute appearances against the Pools, while striker Martin Gritton is pushing for further involvement after making his debut in the same game.

Defenders Nathan Jones and Luke Ayling are also options, along with midfielder Billy Gibson.

A win would take Yeovil onto the 50-point mark.

Graeme Lee will become the latest Notts County player to serve a suspension when Martin Allen takes charge of the club for the first time.

Lee must serve a two-match ban after he was sent off during the defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

The defender is unavailable along with midfielder Ricky Ravenhill, who will complete his two-match suspension at Huish Park.

Lee is likely to be replaced by Mike Edwards, who comes back into the reckoning after serving his two-game ban.

Allen left his role in charge of Barnet, where he has been assisting his former club in their battle against relegation from the Football League on a non-contract basis for the last three weeks, to sign a one-year rolling deal with Notts on Monday.

He will be looking to halt a seven-game losing streak that has seen the club drop into the League One relegation places. However, he must do so without the injured Krystian Pearce, Alan Judge, Fabian Brandy and Alan Gow.
