Carlisle striker Lee Miller is expected to go straight back into the starting line-up following suspension.

The Scot has missed the last three games after his recent dismissal at Hartlepool and Greg Abbott's side have struggled to maintain their momentum in his absence, going down 4-0 at Brentford on Monday.

Abbott has no new injury or suspension problems, but may make several other changes as he bids to get his side's play-off bid back on track.

Central defender Lubo Michalik has struggled for his best form in recent weeks and could make way for Danny Livesey, who replaced the Slovakia international early in the second half on Monday.

Left-back Matty Robson is not ready to return following a back problem, so Ben Parker, on loan from Leeds, is likely to start in his last match before returning to his parent club.

Winger Andy Welsh and left-sided defender/midfielder Chris Chantler are pushing for recalls and striker Paddy Madden has given Abbott plenty to think about with his display against Brentford.

Yeovil are bolstered by the loan signings of Middlesbrough duo Jonathan Grounds and Jonathan Franks.

With captain Paul Huntington serving the final game of a four-match suspension, Grounds could either deputise in the heart of defence or provide cover for unfit full-back Kelly Youga.

Recent signing Richard Hinds remains an option in the backline and the defensive reshuffle could free up assistant manager Nathan Jones to return to the touchline after a successful stint at left-back.

Forward Franks is the likely replacement for Kieran Agard, who begins a three-match ban following his dismissal in last weekend's 3-2 victory over Colchester.

Gary Johnson has also added former Chelsea midfielder Michael Woods to his squad on non-contract terms.

On-loan Reading teenager Lawson D'Ath has made a positive impact in the Glovers side, scoring in the win over the U's, and should keep his place in midfield.
