New front line for Glovers

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson could partner Paddy Madden with Andy Williams when Reading come to Huish Park.

Johnson rested Republic of Ireland international Madden for the controversial Capital One Cup defeat to Birmingham in midweek while Williams, who returned on loan from Swindon last week, was cup-tied having already played in the competition for the Robins.

Wayne Hennessey looks set to start in goal once more while Jamie McAllister is pushing for his first league start since the Wembley win over Brentford after coming through the Blues clash unscathed.

The Glovers welcome the Royals looking for their first home win of the season having lost to Birmingham twice and Derby.

Reading boss Nigel Adkins will swing the axe.

Adkins made nine changes for the midweek Capital One Cup trip to Peterborough but his stand-in players did not cover themselves in glory in a 6-0 defeat.

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, defenders Wayne Bridge, Alex Pearce and Sean Morrison, midfielders Danny Guthrie, Royston Drenthe, Garath McCleary and Jem Karacan and striker Nick Blackman could all return.

Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and Jason Roberts (hip) are still out while winger Jimmy Kebe, who has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace, was due to return from injury at London Road but declared himself unfit due to a hamstring problem, raising questions about his future at the club.
