Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has explained the absence of striker Dean Bowditch from Saturday's first team squad. Last season's top scorer was a surprise omission from the trip to the Memorial Stadium, with Cameron Stewart taking his place in the starting line-up.
Bowditch was withdrawn towards the end of last Saturday's match against Leyton Orient with a slight hamstring niggle. However, Skivo told BBC Somerset that Dean's withdrawal from the squad had nothing to do with that and was due to bruised kidneys:
"He got a whack in his kidneys and there was a little bit of blood that came out in his urine. So we were a little bit worried about him. He's okay and he wanted to play today, but we've just followed the advice of the physio and the doctor and rested him because you can't afford anything when it's internal like that. You can't afford to take risks with people and so we've just sat him out."
