Liam Shephard set for Yeovil return

Defender Liam Shephard could return after a leg injury when Yeovil host Newport in Sky Bet League Two.

The Swansea loan star missed the Glovers' 1-0 home victory over Wycombe on October 8 but could yet be fit this weekend.

Francois Zoko should be available after hip trouble, while fellow forward Izale McLeod is struggling for match fitness.

Matt Butcher, Ryan Dickson and Tom Eaves could all also come into the selection mix as Yeovil bid for a second successive home win.

Graham Westley has several injury concerns for his first match in charge of Newport.

Defender Jamie Turley and midfielder Joss Labadie remain on the casualty list alongside long-term absentee Lenell John-Lewis.

Midfielder Mark Randall is also struggling with a hamstring strain and winger Reece Grego-Cox is doubtful after being substituted in the closing stages of last weekend's goalless draw at Colchester.

Defenders Scot Bennett and Paul Bignot picked up knocks in recent games but should be fit to play as County chase a second league win of the campaign.
