TUESDAY FOOTBALL: YEOVIL TOWN & BRISTOL ROVERS

Gary Johnson kicks off his second spell as Yeovil Town manager with a tough League One test at fourth placed Sheffield United tonight (Bramall Lane, 1945) while Bristol Rovers visit Hereford in League Two.

Johnson's Glovers squad will include on-loan Tottenham Hotspur forward Jon Obika, 21, and new loan defender Ryan Dickson, from Southampton, but be without suspended Scottish striker Steve MacLean.

Saltash-born left back Dickson, 25, previously played for Plymouth and Brentford as well as spending a loan spell at Torquay United in 2007.

Dickson has just started a month's loan spell at Yeovil while the Glovers confirmed yesterday that Obika will be extending his loan spell at Huish Park until the end of the season.

In League Two, 19th placed Bristol Rovers visit Hereford United in 21st looking to widen the one-point gap that separates the sides before tonight’s clash at Edgar Street (1945).

Caretaker Pirates boss Shaun North reports winger Mustapha Carayol is an injury doubt following his 29th minute substitution during Saturday's 3-1 FA Cup defeat by Premier League Aston Villa.

Striker Matt Harold remains an injury doubt while new on-loan keeper Michael Poke, from Brighton & Hove Albion, is set to retain his place after an impressive home bow on Saturday.
