Yeovil midfielder Matt Dolan looks set to feature after the club extended his loan.

Manager Gary Johnson spoke with Dolan's parent club Middlesbrough and both parties were happy to extend his stay for at least another month.

Another player likely to be involved again is Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah. The pacey forward made his debut in the 2-1 win over MK Dons in midweek and looks set to start on the bench again.

That victory, which means the Glovers are yet to lose a league game in 2013, came thanks to two goals from in-form Paddy Madden.

"It's absolutely great to have Paddy Madden around - he is an infectious runner," manager Gary Johnson said this week. "He has a bit of Irish blood in him and is a great finisher. He shows that week in, week out for us."

Lewis Young, brother of Manchester United winger Ashley, is moving closer to a return to first-team action. Young has been missing since October with damaged ligaments and bone bruising but he is back in full training.

Jake Bidwell returns to the Brentford squad.

The on-loan Everton youngster was forced to miss last weekend's glamour FA Cup meeting with Chelsea through suspension after he was sent off against Leyton Orient.

Bidwell should come straight back in at left-back but boss Uwe Rosler has no new injury worries and could otherwise stick with the team which held the European champions to a 2-2 draw.

Tom Adeyemi and Rob Kiernan will be in the squad having this week extended their loan spells at Griffin Park until the end of the season.

Midfielder Kevin O'Connor (ankle) and striker Farid El Alagui (knee) remain the only injury absentees while youngster Emmanuel Oyeleke has joined Northampton on loan.
