Yeovil boss Gary Johnson has halted his search for new faces.

Johnson has made several failed attempts to add to his squad in recent weeks but has decided to keep faith with his current playing staff.

Loan duo Joe Edwards and Paddy Madden are both available for selection after missing the midweek trip to Torquay. Edwards has completed a one-match suspension while Madden was cup-tied for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy meeting.

Defender Luke Ayling may also overcome a hip problem in time but faces a late fitness test.

Reading loanee Gozie Ugwu remains a week away from fitness as he continues to recover from a hamstring problem.

The Glovers have won just one of their last eight league fixtures after a promising start to the new season.

Bury boss Kevin Blackwell is sweating on the fitness of Andy Bishop and Steven Schumacher.

Both men failed to train on Thursday after picking up injuries during Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Carlisle and are likely to face late fitness tests.

Bishop is nursing a groin complaint while Schumacher tweaked a calf as the Cumbrians escaped Gigg Lane with a last-gasp equaliser that leaves the Shakers still searching for a first league win this term.

The injury to Bishop leaves Blackwell with a headache in attack following Hull's decision to recall injured forward Mark Cullen (shin) from his loan spell.

Leicester loanee Tom Hopper is expected to continue up front, while Lateef Elford-Alliyu made a case for inclusion alongside him if Bishop misses out by scoring for the reserves in midweek.

Youth team striker Tom Pratt may also be involved.
