Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has mixed news in terms of injuries ahead of tomorrow's trip to Walsall. The Yeovil boss admitted that on Tuesday that he had a number of his players playing through the pain barrier against Southampton, with playmaker Gavin Williams one of those who limped out of the tail end of the match.
Skivo has admitted that Williams has yet to train since Tuesday, and that Shaun MacDonald has only been able to get through light training. In another blow, BBC Somerset have reported that midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala limped out of training yesterday and returned to the treatment table - whether this is just a reaction to his first day back in training, or a more serious set-back isn't clear at this stage.
On the plus side, the Yeovil boss has told the BBC that he fully expects captain Craig Alcock to be fit and available for selection for tomorrow's trip to Walsall - something that could allow Luke Ayling to be switched to a midfield berth if any of Williams, Kalala or MacDonald fail to pull through. Skivo saw the return of Alcock as a big positive:
"Craig has trained today, so he is back. So I think he will be fit and available for selection on the weekend. Craig has done fantastic for us this year and he has led by example, and it's good to have him back into the fold, because when you have got people dropping in and out, it's nice when you get a couple back. So it's good news for everyone."
The other player currently receiving treatment for an unspecified knock is defender Stefan Stam - again no indication as to whether his position in the squad for tomorrow's game is under threat here.
