Glovers boss Steve Thompson has said he is hoping to gain permission from Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp to use central midfielder Marc Wilson in a Reserve Team match against Swansea City tomorrow afternoon (see two stories from earlier today).
Thommo urgently needs replacements for the injured duo of Anthony Barry and Tommy Doherty who both failed to finish Saturday's match at Chesterfield.
Speaking to today's Western Daily Press, Steve explained: "Marc did reasonably well today and I'm going to ask Harry if I can play him in Wednesday's reserve game at Swansea. If he does well in that game I would certainly look to bring him in for Saturday's match with Swindon. Centre-midfield is a position where I definitely need to bring someone in - definitely one and possibly two."
Anyone looking for any clues as to where a second player might come from should be aware that Steve was in the West Midlands last night watching a Premiership Reserve match between West Bromwich Albion and Bolton Wanderers.
Latest news on the injured duo is that Tommy Doherty is awaiting the results of a scan on his leg, but is bracing himself for three or four weeks out which will effectively terminate his loan period with the Glovers. Meanwhile Anthony Barry is seeing club surgeon Graham Smibert shortly, who is to advise him of the severity of his injury and how the recuperation of his joint can begin to take place. General unofficial opinion though is that Barry is not expected to play again this season.
