Yeovil V Doncaster at Huish Park : Match Preview

McAllister fit to face RoversLeft-back Jamie McAllister is expected to keep his place in Yeovil's starting XI to face Doncaster, despite limping off the pitch with an ankle injury in the 4-2 Capital One Cup defeat to West Brom on Tuesday.McAllister looked likely to miss the game against Dean Saunders' side, but after being assessed, has been given the go ahead to keep his place.Gavin Williams is set for a place on the bench after nearing a full recovery from a persistent calf problem.Manager Gary Johnson had shown frustration with the midfielder's continued absence, but Williams is now available to make his first appearance of the season. Chelsea loanee Rohan Ince made his Yeovil debut as a substitute against the Baggies, and has been declared 100 per cent after showing no side effects from a shin injury which had delayed his first inclusion.Ince is unlikely to force his way into Johnson's starting line-up however as the Glovers sit top of the npower League One table, unbeaten in their opening three league games.Doncaster boss Dean Saunders is expected to make a handful of changes when his side resume npower League One action.Saunders was without leading scorer Chris Brown, in-form Kyle Bennett and Martin Woods on Tuesday night as Rovers reached the third round of the Capital One Cup with victory over Yorkshire rivals Hull.However, the trio should all train on Friday and put themselves in the frame for selection.Billy Paynter and David Cotterill will also come back into contention to start the game in Somerset after being rested on the bench in the 3-2 win over the Tigers.Ahead of the game Saunders, whose side lose their last league outing 1-0 to Crawley, said: "Yeovil are a strong side and very mobile and they've not lost a game in the league yet."But we've got everything to match them. I've got a group of players who are confident and physically we are fine which we weren't last year. This season we've got strong men who want to win."
