KHAN AND SMITH CLOSE TO RETURNING

The 21-year-old has been out of action for two months with an ankle problem he picked up in Town’s Checkatrade Trophy win over Reading Under-23s.

Defender Nathan Smith is also nearing a full recovery on the medial knee ligament injury which has seen him miss the Glovers’ last five matches.

Yeovil’s only other injury concern is Darren Ward with the club still waiting for the specialist’s opinion on his ongoing knee issue.

Youngster Ollie Bassett returned to Huish Park following his one-month loan spell at Dorchester Town.

Boss Darren Way says he will consult Magpies chief Craig Laird for feedback on the 19-year-old’s performances before considering him for selection.
