Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that almost all of his injured players are now ready to return to the playing field, after a couple of months worth of long term injuries. Midfield playmaker Gavin Williams is the only long term absentee from the Glovers squad, meaning that he will miss the chance to play against his former club Hereford United this weekend.
Aside from that, left-winger Alan O'Brien is not expected to be available following the hamstring injury he picked up at Chesterfield last weekend, whilst left-back Nathan Jones picked up a bang on the knee in the same game. But these are expected to be short term absences, meaning that once 'Super Gav' is back Skiverton should have a near full set of players to select from.
Skiverton told BBC Somerset this week that he had also received a boost from striker Steve MacLean, who has been out since last month's match at Stevenage after he suffered a knee injury in a block tackle. He was scheduled to return at the end of November, but along with Paul Huntington, both joined in with training on Thursday:
"Even Macca has trained today - Steve MacLean, who is nearly two weeks early. He'll have a late shout tomorrow on whether he will be involved or not. Paul Huntington has come through and he did a bit of training today, so with him, along with Darren Purse, Bondz (N'Gala), Max (Ehmer) and now Luke (Ayling) is back, we've got some good options."
