We look ahead to Tuesday night's Capital One Cup clash at Huish ParkYEOVIL V GILLINGHAM
Capital One Cup First Round
Tuesday August 12
Matt Fish (knee), Cody McDonald (ankle), Stuart Nelson (thumb) and Amine Linganzi (hamstring) are all missing for Tuesday’s trip to Yeovil.
Fish and Linganzi remain on the treatment table; however it is unknown when the duo will be fully fit. McDonald and Nelson are being monitored daily, although both are likely to be out of action for at least a couple of weeks.
As a result Glenn Morris will play in goal with first year pro Tom Hadler providing cover from the bench. Antonio German or Luke Norris could partner Danny Kedwell in attack with Josh Pritchard also in the squad.
As for the hosts Kevin Dawson and Joel Grant are both injured for game, while striker James Hayter will be looking for a start after impressing from the bench following the club’s 3-0 defeat to Doncaster on Saturday.
Peter Taylor said: “Josh Hare will be in the 18 – Linganzi still isn’t fit for this one or Fish. Cody is out and so is Stuart but McKain will come back in and we’ll go from there.
“Josh will be in the squad too, he definitely won’t start but we if get the opportunity to play him for 15-20 minutes that would be nice.”
Gary Johnson told Yeovil’s club website: “We will look forward to the two Gillingham games but until we do we've got to be concerned about a 3-0 defeat at home.
“I'm not concerned that the players are not going to be good enough because I've seen that, but the only concern is can those players play with no fear? Can they go out to actually play their best game and effect the game as individuals as well as a group?”
The clubs last met in February 2010 when a 0-0 draw was played out at Huish Park. A Simeon Jackson penalty clinched all three points for Gills just a few months before in a 1-0 victory at Priestfield.
In total the teams have met on nine occasions – Gillingham’s win in 2009 is the only time they have defeated Yeovil. Tuesday’s opponents have five victories to their name with the other three games being draws.
