Holmes set for Glovers debut

Yeovil could hand a debut to midfielder Duane Holmes when they host Doncaster in a crunch game at the foot of the Sky Bet Championship.

The Glovers welcome Paul Dickov's men knowing victory could claw them to within three points of safety and they have the 19-year-old Huddersfield loanee available after he penned a loan deal until late March.

But one player who will not feature is winger Joel Grant who picked up a hamstring injury in the build up to Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Watford which looks set to sideline him for roughly two weeks.

Spaniard Ruben Palazuelos was an unused substitute against the Hornets after international clearance came through and he looks likely to be involved again at Huish Park.

Theo Robinson could return to the Doncaster squad.

Robinson has not featured since suffering a knee injury against QPR on New Year's Day. The striker has returned to training slightly ahead of schedule and may be involved in Somerset on Saturday.

His potential return is a welcome boost for Rovers who are still without the suspended Billy Sharp. Robinson will boost options in attack after manager Dickov brought in Aston Villa striker Jordan Bowery last week on an initial one-month loan deal and he replaced Sharp in the starting line-up against Barnsley last weekend.

Midfielder Richie Wellens comes back into the reckoning after a two-match ban but winger Harry Forrester is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a cartilage injury in training.
