David Cornell will line up in goal for Hereford in their FA Cup first-round tie at home to Yeovil following a change of heart from the Football Association of Wales.

Cornell was initially due to miss the tie having been called to meet up early with the Wales Under-21 squad ahead of Tuesday's clash in Armenia, but that decision led to stinging criticism from Bulls director of football Gary Peters aimed at the FAW.

With fellow goalkeepers Adam Bartlett (thigh) and Russell Hoult both injured and Hereford struggling to bring in loan cover, the League Two club were facing a goalkeeping crisis.

But the Welsh FA on Wednesday reversed their decision and Cornell will join his international team-mates after the FA Cup encounter.

Midfielder Steve Leslie and forward Tom Barkhuizen are both ineligible, however, having been denied permission to play by parent clubs Shrewsbury and Blackpool respectively. Each of United's other loanees are available.

Centre-back Stefan Stam and midfielder Joe Colbeck (both knee) remain in the treatment room, while defender Andy Todd has been released having arrived on non-contract terms in the middle of October.

Yeovil have Luke Ayling back from suspension for their trip.

The defender was handed an extra one-match ban by a Football Association disciplinary panel following his red card against Leyton Orient on October 29, but returns to face the Bulls.

Manager Terry Skiverton is likely to be without winger Alan O'Brien due to a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-2 draw with Chesterfield last weekend and

the Glovers boss has suggested the Irishman could be out for a fortnight.

On-loan midfielder Conor Clifford has been called up by the Republic of Ireland Under-21 set-up for their match against Liechtenstein in Sligo on Monday and will not be available to Skiverton, and goalkeeper Marek Stech is off on international duty with the Czech Republic Under-21s.

Gavin Williams is expected to be sidelined until December with a knee injury.
