Yeovil Town look set to continue making use of goalkeeping coach Gareth Stewart between the sticks for Saturday's home match against Exeter City. The 31 year old had not played at professional level for over three years when he made an appearance in the FA Cup First Round at Edgar Street in Saturday's 3-0 win against Hereford United.
Now the Preston-born keeper appears likely to make a second appearance this coming Saturday, with the Grecians visiting in a League One match. As yet the club have not found a replacement for West Ham United goalkeeper Marek Stech, and the club have indicated that Stewart is therefore likely to be in the starting line-up for Saturday's match.
Tonight, manager Terry Skiverton will be elsewhere, watching Enfield Town officially open their new Queen Elizabeth Stadium, as they finally return to a permanent home, years after leaving Southbury Road. Their 2,500 capacity stadium has been given a £6 million refurbishment by Enfield Council and they will play host to a Tottenham Hotspur XI tonight which will include Yeovil Town loanee Jonathan Obika in their line-up. Obika is being tested in that match to assess whether he is ready to return to full first team training with the Glovers following his knee injury. The Glovers first team squad will be boosted by one other striker at the very least though, with Steve MacLean now back in full training following his recent knee injury.
