Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he is continuing his search for new blood in the Glovers squad, but it is looking increasingly likely that his current squad will have to see him through the weekend. Yeovil Town travel to Brighton and Hove Albion looking to break a run of six games without a win, and although the Glovers boss admitted he was still looking for new players to take his side out of their current rut, he was staying tightlipped over their identities:
"I've got one or two irons in the fire and we'll just have to see what happens. I don't really want to say anything in case something gets out. That happened with one of my first deals. People knew about it before it had gone through and then it didn't happen. So I think I better keep my own counsel on that."
We suspect he is referring to Cheltenham Town striker Damian Spencer, who the club tried to sign up earlier this month, with the Robins doing a u-turn on the deal for unspecified reasons.
Within the current squad, Terry rates himself and Aaron Brown as his two immediate areas of concern ahead of the game:
"I tried to train today and it was still very sore. So we'll just have to wait and see. The only one that is really struggling is Browny, with his groin. But that's the only one. I think he'll be OK for the weekend."
Gavin Tomlin came off 50 minutes into the midweeker at Leeds United with an ankle injury, but has already returned to training this morning. Midfielder Danny Schofield did not join in with training after suffering a groin strain in midweek and physio Wayne Jones will assess his chances tomorrow, but his withdrawl up in Yorkshire was a precautionary measure rather than anything serious.
