YEOVIL manager Steve Thompson says new loan signing Chris Cohen will bring some much-needed midfield cover.
The 18-year-old West Ham player has joined on a month-long deal and is expected to make his debut against Town tomorrow.
Thompson believes Cohen is a crucial signing.
"We've signed Chris because we had only three central midfielders at the club in a squad of 26 and we need cover," he said.
"It also gives Chris and ourselves the chance to look at each other during the month which is a good thing."
Cohen was Cup-tied for the clash with Macclesfield but seems certain to step in for a Huish Park debut.
Cohen has made only two League starts for West Ham, but he has appeared a further 16 times from the bench.
He has also played in three League Cup ties (two from the start) and played as a substitute in the FA Cup.
While Cohen prepares to take a bow, it's extremely unlikely Efe Sodje will be in the Yeovil starting line-up.
The former Town centre back has missed the last three matches with a knee injury and was denied a return in the Reserves this week because the match against Bournemouth was postponed for a waterlogged pitch.
With no game under his belt, it seems a place on the bench is the best the bandana man can hope for as Yeovil bid to build on a run of three wins in the last four League I matches which has lifted them to13th.
"Yeovil seem to have picked up under their new manager and we will come under pressure at some stage," said Town chief Peter Jackson.
"Whether that's for 10, 20 or 30 minutes, the important thing is how we react.
"If we defend well as a unit we'll be fine. We've done a lot of possession work in training this week with sharp passing and movement."
Midfielder Lee Fowler was today joining Scarborough on loan and will make his debut against Tamworth tomorrow.
