Yeovil Town Caretaker Manager Neale Marmon has said that one of last weekend's injured players is back in training this week, with a second expected to return to the fold sometime around the Easter weekend, ahead of the trip to Crewe Alexandra and the home fixture against Colchester United. Defender Omar Sowunmi has struggled to get back into his stride since returning from a five month layoff from an ankle injury sustained in September 2018. The 23 year old has attempted two comebacks over the last six weeks but has had to sit out subsequent games.
Sowunmi is now back on the training ground, with Marmon adding that Alex Pattison had suffered no ill-effects from his half hour cameo on Saturday that saw him return from a back injury during the game against Crawley Town. Meanwhile Rhys Browne looks likely to be available sometime around this weekend, having been out with a back injury:
"Omar Sowunmi has been joining in today, and looks pretty fit. Alex Pattison is up for it as well. So there's only Rhys Browne, who is now three or four days away. So the whole squad is available."
There's no explicit mention of Chelsea right-back Josh Grant at this stage - he had been missing with an Achilles problem. Meanwhile Marmon has said that himself and first team coach Paul Terry sat down and analysed the club's last few games on Sunday to try to root out problems and highlight the better aspects of the team play. He has told BBC Somerset that he could see some positive change in the way the players were approaching games and hoped that would eventually bear fruit:
"I basically gave them Sunday off, so that I could sit down with Paul Terry and analyse the whole situation. We came up with a lot of positives that we've seen in the last three weeks. Basically we explained to them what we'd seen of positive change over the last three weeks. Going into the game on Friday they know they've got to get points. Probably Macclesfield know and Notts County as well. I think that if we do get a win, then a certain positivity would kick off really."
