15 October 2010 : Henderson Stay To Depend On Sullivan Fitness
Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he will wait for main goalkeeper John Sullivan to prove his fitness before considering a loan extension for Bristol City keeper Stephen Henderson. The Irishman has made it clear that he is willing to stay at Huish Park in a bid to play in more games, but the final match of his initial one month loan spell takes place tomorrow at Huish Park, in a League One match against Sheffield Wednesday.

Skiverton has said that Millwall keeper Sullivan is back in training, but they are keeping a close eye on him to make sure that he is 100 percent fit and ready to make his first team comeback. The obvious assumption to make is that if Sullivan is fully fit, then Henderson will return to Ashton Gate:

"I can't tell you anything at the moment. We just have to make sure that John (Sullivan) is all right. He's been out for five weeks at the moment, so we're just assessing how fit he is. Once we do come to the bottom of that, then we'll end up deciding about Hendo. But we're talking. I'm talking to him and I'm talking to Bristol City as well. So it's ongoing and we'll see how it goes and how the fall-out from today goes into tomorrow."

City boss Keith Millen has told Sky Sports that he is happy for a loan extension to be agreed in principle for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 player. Given that Millen can include a 24 hour recall clause in any loan extension agreed, this is a bit of a no-brainer for the Robins, and Millen says he is just waiting for a phone call to come:

"I am waiting on a call from them regarding Stephen because he has been playing very well for them. I am led to believe that they do want to extend his loan stay there, but I haven't had that conversation with Terry Skiverton yet. We feel that it is important that he continues playing first-team football, so if all parties are happy I can't see a problem in extending the loan, but like I said nothing has been agreed yet."
