Match Preview – Yeovil vs Macc’area

Last Updated: 14/03/19 4:36pm

Yeovil must do without suspended midfielder Sessi D’Almeida for their match against fellow Sky Bet League Two relegation battlers Macclesfield.

D’Almeida made his return from a shoulder injury as a substitute in the midweek defeat at Port Vale, but later collected a yellow card, his 10th caution of the season, and so will serve a two-match ban.

Rhys Browne went off with a suspected hamstring problem and the midfielder is doubtful for Saturday’s game. Alefe Santos and Jake Gray could both come into contention, while forward Alex Fisher (ankle) continues his recovery along with Gary Warren (hamstring), Gabby Rogers (calf) and defender Craig Alcock (knee).

Macclesfield saw their midweek home match against Exeter postponed because of a waterlogged pitch. Defender Jamie Grimes has been out following a concussion, so continues to be assessed ahead of being cleared to play again.

Midfielder Ben Stephens should be available after he made a long-awaited return to action with a first start since Boxing Day against MK Dons following an ankle problem. Goalkeeper Rhys Taylor continues his recovery from a hip problem which has sidelined him since early November.
