Yeovil Town have their third game in a row at Huish Park this Saturday afternoon as they take on stuttering AFC Bournemouth, searching for three points which would guarantee them safety. 

Although there is a gulfing gap between the two sides in terms of the table, with Bournemouth lying in 6th whilst the Glovers languish in 17th, the form tables reveal a different story, with the Cherries winning just once in eight games. 

That win came last weekend over relegation threatened Notts County, whilst the Glovers were held to a 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic. 

In terms of injuries manager Terry Skiverton has a full squad to pick from, although Andy Williams ankle injury may cause him a slight bit of concern. Luke Ayling starts the first of his two match suspension after being sent off for a second time this season last week.

The exit of Oli Johnson means that fellow loanee Andrew Tutte is likely to come back into the squad after missing recent games as the unlucky 6th loanee. 

Bournemouth have a few more injuries, with Rhoys Wiggins and Michael Symes missing the Easter games through injury. The Cherries should have Stephen Purches available for selection, despite picking up an injury with the game against Notts County. 

The Glovers lost 2-0 at Dean Court in the season, in what could have been a far greater score line. Luckily scorer on that night Josh McQuoid has since moved to Millwall after terrorising the Yeovil defence.
