Ince: Set for late fitness test
Team news ahead of Saturday's League One clash between Yeovil and Coventry at Huish Park.
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson hopes to welcome Rohan Ince and Gavin Williams back into his side on the opening day of the season.
Chelsea loanee Ince has been struggling with a shin injury while Williams missed their midweek League Cup victory over Colchester with a calf injury.
Both players face a late fitness test and Johnson was forced to name only five substitutes out of a possible seven on Tuesday night.
Midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown is pushing for a starting place after scoring from the bench in an impressive display. Gozie Ugwu or Sam Foley are the likely options to drop out.
Defender James McAllister, who returned to the club in the summer, is expected to be appointed captain for the season after being handed the armband for most of pre-season and for Tuesday night's win.
Coventry hope to welcome back Adam Barton and John Fleck.
Midfielder Barton, a summer signing from Preston, missed Tuesday's 1-0 Capital One Cup win at Dagenham & Redbridge due to international duty with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 side, despite only recently returning from a dislocated ankle and broken leg.
Fleck, another summer arrival, also sat out of the cup triumph with a slight hamstring complaint sustained during pre-season.
But both are expected to be okay for the trip down to Huish Park, while Nathan Cameron (knee) could also be included in the travelling party having recently returned to training.
However, long-term absentees Cyrus Christie (knee), Conor Thomas (ankle) and David Bell (hip) remain sidelined.
