Yeovil Town will go into this weekend's pair of matches against Maidenhead United and Dagenham and Redbridge with roughly the same playing squad that travelled to Barrow last weekend. The Glovers have no fresh injury concerns, despite right-back Craig Alcock being left with five stitches in a wound just above the eye after he was elbowed in the face by one of the Cumbrians early on during the 1-0 defeat.
Alcock didn't suffer concussion, meaning that he is clear to play in this weekend's matches. However, the club will continue to be without striker Rhys Murphy and defender Lee Collins who both picked up hamstring injuries during the 3-1 midweek win at Ebbsfleet United that preceded the trip to Barrow. The early diagnosis of that pair was that they'd miss at least two weeks worth of football, meaning the earliest anyone would see them would be the end of the month.
There is one good bit of news from the camp, in that central defender Luke Wilkinson is now back in training. The former Stevenage player player missed the whole of pre-season due to injury, and was seen around the start of the season still on crutches. However, he is now back on the training ground, although it would be likely that he would need a few weeks there in the first instance as a belated 'pre-season' to get him back up to the same level of fitness as his teammates.
Meanwhile, first team manager Darren Sarll is now a Somerset boy! The Glovers boss had started off commuting from his Bedfordshire home, but now thankfully has property in the Yeovil area, allowing him (and his car) to settle down during the evenings. He moved into his new home yesterday.
