Yeovil Town Vs Bournemouth, Sat 23 Apr 2011


Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton will be without Luke Ayling for the home game against play-off contenders Bournemouth.

The versatile defender or midfielder was dismissed during the 1-1 draw with Oldham last weekend after collecting two yellow cards and now begins a two-match ban.

Ed Upson and Craig Alcock are the main contenders to fill the void left by the former Arsenal youngster.

The Glovers boss has no other injury or suspension problems to contend with and could name an otherwise unchanged starting line-up.

On-loan strikers Oli Johnson and Jonathan Obika look set to continue their blossoming partnership in attack, meaning Martin Gritton will have to wait for his first start since returning to the club for a second spell.

Paul Wotton and Shaun McDonald also seem to have built up an understanding in midfield, so Alex Russell could again be on the bench.

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury will have Warren Cummings available.

The 30-year-old left-back missed last weekend`s 2-0 win at Notts County with a sickness bug but has now fully recovered and could go straight back into the starting line-up.

Stephen Purches, who filled the vacant role against the Magpies, has also recovered from a heavy blow but regular left-back Rhoys Wiggins again misses out with a thigh strain.

The Cherries boss has no other injury or suspension problems but has plenty of options should he wish to shuffle his pack.

Defender Mathieu Baudry, midfielder Harry Arter and striker Steve Fletcher all impressed during substitute appearances last week and will be pushing for starting roles

Attacking midfielder Marc Pugh and on-loan striker Lauri Dalla Valle are also available for recalls.
