Right winger Nick Crittenden looks likely to be ruled out until the end of March as he heads to the operating table to deal with an on-going groin injury. The injury is likely to keep Crittenden out for around four to five weeks.
Speaking to the Yeovil Express Gary Johnson revealed that the injury has been causing Critts problems for some time.
"Nick hasn't been 100 per cent fit for a while now and so he needs this operation," said Johnson. "It will mean him being out for four to five weeks. It is unfortunate because he's been virtually an ever-present since he first came to the club. At the moment he is about 70 per cent fit, so it's sensible for him to have the operation now so he can return for the closing weeks of the season 100 per cent fit."
Johnson used new loan signing Jason Blunt in a wide-right position against Dorchester Town on Tuesday, and with hindsight was clearly considering Blunt's capabilities in that position for Saturday's game against Kettering Town. Other options open to Johnson involve Abdelhalim El Kholti, Gavin Williams or Andy Lindegaard - all of whom have successfully played in that position before.
