The 25-year-old has been out of favour with The Robins this season and already spent spells on loan with Darlington and, more recently, Bristol Rovers.
His fresh loan move to Huish Park is with a view to a permanent deal with The Glovers, with the Somerset-based club just hanging on to the last play-off place in Division Three in their inaugural season in the Football League.
The former Leeds United striker was delighted with his move south to Yeovil.
"I'm delighted to get the chance to play in a promotion chasing side," Matthews told Yeovil's official website.
"I was impressed with the Yeovil performance when I played against them for Bristol Rovers and to be a part of this side is an opportunity I could not resist."
Matthews's arrival is coupled with the news that midfielder Jamie Gosling has joined Conference club Aldershot Town on a month's loan.
