I know it's hard to believe but the international break has hit us hard for this weekend.

Stephen Kingsley (Scotland Under-21s) Liam Shephard and Josh Sheehan (Wales Under-21s) and Joel Grant (Jamaica) are all unavailable. That coupled with Joe Edwards still being out with an ankle injury means we are struggling even more than usual to put a full bench out.

Still, the players will be buoyed by their midweek Somerset Premier Cup win over Larkhall Athletic of the mighty Southern League Div 1 South & West. On penalties.

Rochdale 4-0.

Rochdale had 4 players go off injured on Tuesday, whereas we've pretty much had a week and a half break, so I think you're being a bit pessimistic.

4-1 Rochdale.

Potentially without the four players injured at Oldham, while Joe Rafferty has been out for a few weeks and may not be ready to return.

The team could potentially include five players who have appeared at left-back this season. And any of three goalies.

May also be a very young side - or Brian Barry-Murphy may be recalled to the colours- making a potential 6th left-back.

Our kids are good however - top of their U-18 league - and if unleashed could get a few.

Dale 4 (Henderson x 3, Cannon); Glovers 2.

101 away fans - unlike MK, Yeovil aren't tinpot.

Looking at our line up doesn't fill me with much confidence at all.

Ground out win, but I feel against stronger opposition our injury list would have been our downfall. I don't expect us to stay in the playoffs, we are doing fantastically to still be in with a shout at this stage though.
