Loan issues for Johnson

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson has his loanees on his mind ahead of the clash with Oldham with one suspended, one having returned to his parent club and another set to feature for the last time before heading back.

The Glovers will have to undergo a defensive reshuffle against Paul Dickov's men with Fulham defender Dan Burn missing after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Walsall.

Another regular who will not be featuring is midfielder Korey Smith who is set to hold talks with Norwich about his future this week after returning to Carrow Road having made 18 appearances in his three-month stay.

And versatile full-back Joe Edwards, who has been with the club since September from Bristol City, will play the final game of his loan spell against the Latics.

Edwards, who has made 16 appearances and scored one goal, has impressed at right-back, right wing and in the midfield.

Oldham goalkeeper Alex Cisak remains a major doubt for the trip.

Cisak had to leave the field in the closing stages of last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Swindon at Boundary Park having suffered a gash to the forehead that left him with concussion and requiring seven stitches.

The 23-year-old returned to light training on Thursday and will be assessed ahead of the trip to Huish Park, but the burden on boss Paul Dickov is eased as fellow keeper Dean Bouzanis is available once more having served a three-match ban.

Cliff Byrne was substituted after 16 minutes against the Robins due to a back injury but has returned to full training and expects to feature at the weekend.

Matt Derbyshire has returned to Nottingham Forest at the conclusion of his loan spell, meaning Robbie Simpson and Matt Smith are battling to partner Jose Baxter in attack.
