Upson worry for Glovers

Yeovil will assess the fitness of midfielder Ed Upson ahead of their FA Cup third round-tie with Leyton Orient.


The former Ipswich trainee was substituted during the first half of their 5-1 loss at Huddersfield with an ankle injury and manager Gary Johnson may decide against risking one of his key players against their League One opponents.


There is better news about the fitness of Czech goalkeeper Marek Stech who was also taken off against the Terriers. He returned to training on Friday before their postponed clash with Watford so he will retain his place in the Glovers side.


Defender Byron Webster is expected to return to action after 10 days on the sidelines with a hamstring strain and he looks set to be reunited with Shane Duffy who has extended his loan stay from Everton until the end of the season.


Leyton Orient strike duo David Mooney and Shaun Batt will miss the trip.


Mooney has completed the suspension which kept him out over Christmas but is now carrying a foot injury which will sideline him for a fortnight, and Batt faces a longer spell out with a torn hamstring.


Midfielder Romain Vincelot picked up a knee knock at Wolves last Sunday but the postponement of Wednesday's clash with Bristol City has given him extra time to recover, and Jake Larkins continues in goal in place of the injured Jamie Jones (back).


Defender Scott Cuthbert returns after missing the 1-1 draw at Molineux through suspension.
