Match Preview – Yeovil vs Oldham

Last Updated: 20/08/18 4:27pm

Yeovil welcome back forward Jordan Green from a three-match suspension for the Sky Bet League Two clash with Oldham.

Green was sent off for a mistimed challenge in the season opener against Bury, but may struggle to regain his place after the Glovers thrashed Notts County 4-0 last time out. Darren Way is still without long-term absentees Stuart Nelson (calf) and James Bailey (knee).

Rhys Browne (hamstring), Reece Cole (knee), Shaun Donnellan (thigh) and Francois Zoko (knee) are also unlikely to recover in time after missing Friday’s trip to Meadow Lane.

Oldham boss Frankie Bunn has no new injury concerns ahead of the Latics’ trip to Huish Park. Captain Peter Clarke is available after returning from a knee injury for Saturday’s 3-1 win over Macclesfield, with Sam Surridge making a scoring return from a hamstring problem in the same game.

Striker Ishmael Miller (hamstring) was fit enough to come on for the last seven minutes – and net a late third – and could be in line for more minutes as he steps up his return. Andy Taylor has missed the opening four games of the season, while midfielder Jack Byrne is unavailable after being made to train with the youth team following a disciplinary issue.
