Yeovil's new loan striker Kwesi Appiah is available to feature as the Glovers host fellow promotion hopefuls MK Dons.
Appiah, who had been training with the club recently, signed a one-month loan deal from Crystal Palace on Monday and could feature against a side just one point and one place above Gary Johnson's men.
The youngster's arrival boosts Yeovil's attacking options with two strikers having departed Huish Park in the last week.
Keanu Marsh-Brown is now a free agent after his contract was cancelled by mutual while Reuben Reid has joined Plymouth on a month's loan.
Meanwhile, Lewis Young is moving closer to a return to first-team action. The winger has been missing since October with damaged ligaments and bone bruising but he is back in full training.
This clash with Karl Robinson's FA Cup giantkillers is just Yeovil's third npower League One match of 2013.
MK Dons will be without Gary MacKenzie when they resume npower League One action.
MacKenzie limped off with a knock after 20 minutes of the historic FA Cup fourth round victory over QPR on Saturday.
Tom Flanagan returned to the bench at Loftus Road after a broken foot and he is an option to replace MacKenzie at centre-half.
Izale McLeod will come back into manager Karl Robinson's squad after being cup-tied but fellow forward Daniel Powell (hamstring) remains sidelined along with long-term absentees Stephen Gleeson (broken foot) and Luke Chadwick (knee).
Midfielder Chris Lines will be hoping to make his league debut for the Dons after arriving on loan from Sheffield Wednesday last week.
