Duo still missing for Glovers

Yeovil look set to remain without two regulars as they look to close the seven-point gap between themselves and Championship survival when Watford come to Somerset.

The Glovers are just one of two teams in the bottom seven in action on Tuesday night and their rearranged clash with the Hornets is one of four matches at Huish Park in the coming weeks.

And manager Gary Johnson had expected to welcome back left-back Liam Davis (toe) and striker Sam Hoskins (groin) to his squad but the pair have suffered set-backs and will not be involved.

Yeovil have not picked up three points on home soil since December 3 but can take heart from their emphatic 3-0 win at Vicarage Road earlier this season.

Samba Diakite starts a three-match suspension for Watford.

The on-loan midfielder saw red in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough - a third win in four unbeaten matches - and now starts a three-match suspension at Huish Park.

Defender Lloyd Doyley was forced off at half-time against Boro nursing a calf injury and is a doubt, while Lewis McGugan (thigh), Almen Abdi (foot) and Fitz Hall (Achilles) remain sidelined.

However, goalkeeper Manuel Almunia (calf) and defender Joel Ekstrand (knee) return to contention to boost the Hornets.
