Yeovil Town entertain cash-strapped Plymouth Argyle this evening, knowing a win will see them leave the bottom four and enter the hallowed ground of safety.

Transfer deadline day turned out to be a busy one for the Glovers, with Jean-Paul Kalala leaving to join local rivals Bristol Rovers, and star striker Dean Bowditch at one staged looked destined for Huddersfield Town, only for the move to fortunately not materialise.

Arriving at Huish Park however was Manchester City youngster Andrew Tutte, who arrives on loan from Eastlands. The midfielder has previously been on-loan at Rochdale and Shrewsbury Town, clocking up eleven appearances over the two loans.

Yeovil legend Gavin Williams was rumoured to have been returning to Yeovil after leaving Bristol City by mutual consent, but the Welshman made the short trip across Bristol to Rovers.

Argyle will be glad to see the back of the January transfer market, as they lost star trio Bradley Wright-Phillips (Charlton), Breda Johnson (Sheffield Wed.) and Craig Noone (Brighton & Hove Albion).

Team news sees Yeovil welcome back Luke Ayling and Adam Virgo from suspension, although captain Craig Alcock continues to miss out with his back injury.

The Pilgrims welcome back Rory Fallon after he completed a short loan spell at Ipswich Town, with the New Zealand international of course having a loan spell with the Glovers back in the Gary Johnson era.

Both sides find themselves at opposite ends of the form guide, with the Green and Whites boasting a 2011 record of played seven, won four, drawn two, and lost one.

Plymouth on the other hand are now without a win in five, and look to be in freefall, something perhaps brought on by the financial uncertainty surrounding the club.

if you are not travelling to Huish Park you can listen to the game on BBC Radio Somerset 99.5Fm with a match report following later on Glover Lover.
