Maguire missed the win against Barnet in midweek because of an ankle problem and Weston, who has had a sickness bug, limped off late on with tightness.

But the pair will train today ahead of the trip to Huish Park.

“Laurence Maguire is back in training today, he was not quite right for the other night so we shall see how he is,” first-team coach Danny Webb said.

Laurence Maguire missed the win against Barnet with an ankle injury.

"Curtis Weston had a couple of days where he felt a bit ropey, nothing major, I think that maybe just caught up with him.

"The amount of ground he covers and what he brings to the team, whether it is his leadership skills, his pure athleticism or his footballing ability, sometimes it catches up with you in a game like the other night where we are going for it, we want the win and we have got the crowd behind us so that is all it was.

"Curtis is very well and he is available for selection tomorrow.”

After an opening day loss to King’s Lynn Town the Glovers have won three on the bounce, including a 3-0 away victory at Stockport on Tuesday, and sit seventh in the league.

Yeovil have former Spireites Grant Smith and Adi Yussuf in their ranks.

“It is two teams on a good run so for the neutral I think it is going to be a hell of a game but hopefully one that swings in our favour,” Webb added.

"They have had a good start, they have been strong, I watched them against Stockport and they looked powerful.

"I think they have got the lowest possession in the league which shows they win it back and they are dangerous on the counter.

"They are big and strong and dangerous from set-pieces.

"Darren Sarll will have them organised and up for it.

"We have got to go there and show the same sort of fight and hunger which has got us the points on the board so far and I am sure our footballing ability will shine through but we have to do those basics well to go somewhere like Yeovil and get a result.”
