Yeovil v Crawley preview
Last Updated: 22/01/16 8:24pm
Yeovil boss Darren Way is hoping to have captain Darren Ward available against Crawley after the defender stepped up his recovery from a knee injury.
Ward missed Tuesday's FA Cup third-round replay defeat at home to Carlisle but Way says a potential return on Saturday looks "promising".
Fellow centre-back Alex Lacey was shown a red card for a studs-up challenge on Carlisle's Charlie Wyke in midweek and is suspended for the Sky Bet League Two clash.
Midfielders Kevin Dawson (pelvis) and Simon Gillett (knee) are both pushing for their first starts of the season after being named on the bench on Tuesday.
Callum Preston is expected to be in goal for Crawley after first-choice stopper Darryl Flahavan left the club on Thursday.
The 37-year-old had been offered an extension by manager Mark Yates after his previous one ran out last weekend but the offer was withdrawn and the Reds are hoping to bring a new goalkeeper in before they travel to Yeovil.
Midfielder Chris Atkinson will be hoping to be included in the starting XI for the first time since joining from Crewe on a month's loan last week after he came on in the second half of the Reds' 1-0 defeat against Notts County.
Yates has no fresh injury worries but Jimmy Smith (foot) and Joe McNerney (knee) remain long-term absentees.
