Both sides won big league games at the weekend and will head into this replay with confidence high and both knowing the stakes.

Andy Procter missed the weekend win at Portsmouth with a groin strain and remains a doubt.

Centre back Rob Atkinson suffered a similar injury at Fratton Park and is also potentially sidelined.

Former Yeovil man Anthony Barry was withdrawn as a precaution at the weekend but is likely to be available.

Yeovil have no new injury worries and will have the same squad to choose from that won handsomely at Oldham at the weekend.[/vc_tab]The Glovers have spent eight out of the last 10 seasons in League One, one season in League Two and one season in the Championship.
