Manager Graham Westley will pick from an unchanged squad as Stevenage go in search of successive victories for the first time this season.

Westley has hinted he may make changes from the side that inflicted a first league defeat of the campaign on leaders Charlton last weekend.

Defender Phil Edwards, midfielders Joel Byrom and Robin Shroot, forward Chris Beardsley and the versatile Darius Charles are among those players in contention for a recall.

"When you have three games in eight days it is always nice to have 20-21 players out on the training pitch, as we have this week," Westley told the club's official website.

Saturday's game at the Lamex Stadium will be the first Football League meeting between the two clubs.

Yeovil have both Nathan Jones and Flavien Belson suspended.

Jones was booked for the fifth time this season in the 3-0 defeat to Carlisle while Belson was dismissed in the first half for two bookable offences.

Paul Huntington will also miss out after the defender underwent surgery on a broken hand. The 31-year-old is expected to be out for up to four weeks and Town have signed veteran Millwall defender Darren Purse on a month's loan as cover.

The trio join long-term absentees Gavin Williams (knee), Andy Williams (ankle), Jon Obika (knee) and Dominic Blizzard in the stands.

Assistant player-manager Nathan Jones is expected to keep his place, despite being booed off by fans after being substituted against Carlisle.
