Yeovil boss Gary Johnson has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

The Glovers boss had been without long-term injury absentees Nathan Ralph and Lewis Young since the autumn but both made positive impacts as substitutes in the midweek win over Preston, with Ralph grabbing a vital goal.

Goalkeeper Marek Stech was a doubt in midweek as his partner was due to give birth, but he is now available following the arrival of his daughter on Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, a midweek practice match against Exeter saw Richard Hinds, Dominic Blizzard and Gavin Williams get valuable game time under their belts ahead of the weekend's fixture.

But Johnson is likely to name the same starting line-up that overcame North End 3-1 on Tuesday night as they look to make it eight successive League One victories.

That sensational run of form has moved the Huish Park side to within three points of the division's top two teams.

Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws could name an unchanged side for the trip to Yeovil.

The Iron picked up no new injury problems during the 3-1 win against Carlisle in midweek - a result which stretched their winning run to three matches.

Laws remains without injured trio Christian Ribeiro, Damien Mozika and Robbie Gibbons.

Defender Ribeiro has been sidelined since the start of January with a hamstring problem, but is expected to play for the reserves against Stoke on Monday.

Mozika, who picked up a hamstring injury against Shrewsbury last month, will not be back for another couple of weeks while fellow midfielder Gibbons (illness) is expected to remain absent for a few weeks.

Scunthorpe's recent form has seen them move five points clear of the relegation zone. The Iron will be looking for revenge after Yeovil handed them a 4-0 defeat at Glanford Park in August.
