Yeovil v Portsmouth preview

Team news for Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash between Yeovil Town and Portsmouth at Huish Park.

Yeovil look set to hand new signing Jack Price a debut when they play host to Pompey.

The 21-year-old has penned a one-month emergency loan deal from Wolves and could come straight into the side after Simon Gillett's injury on Saturday.

The former Nottingham Forest man was forced off in the first half of their 1-1 draw with Barnsley and will undergo a scan to determine the severity of the problem.

He joins James Berrett, Joel Grant and Liam Davis in the Glovers' treatment room so Glovers boss Gary Johnson could, once again, be unable to field a full bench having named just six substitutes in two of their last three matches.

Portsmouth boss Andy Awford could ring the changes for the trip after his first loss as manager of the club as he looks for a "positive reaction" from his players.

The 1-0 defeat at home to Newport saw Nigel Atangana settle for a place on the bench, with Ricky Holmes starting instead and Holmes may retain his place behind the strikers.

The south-coast club are also sweating on the fitness of 18-year-old Jack Whatmough, as they wait to learn the extent of an ankle problem sustained in the Capital One Cup at Stoke.

Awford remains without the sidelined Alex Wynter (head), Patrick Agyemang (hamstring), Danny East (groin), Michael Pope (Achilles), Tom Craddock and Wes Fogden (both knee).
