Live text updates from today's football matches

LEAGUE ONE

  • YEOVIL TOWN v BURY

Yeovil will want to put the disappointment of last weekend's defeat to Tranmere behind them by beating bottom club Bury at Huish Park. The Glovers were 2-0 up at the league leaders, but eventually lost 3-2. Tuesday's JPT win at Torquay should give the team a boost.

On-loan striker Paddy Madden is likely to return to the starting eleven after being cup-tied for the Torquay match. Yeovil fans will be hoping he can continue his scoring spree – having netted three times in two games.

It's been a difficult start to the season for Bury. Their manager Richie Barker quit to join Crawley, and the team is without a win all season. Former Leeds and Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell took charge at Gigg Lane at the end of September.

They will be without on-loan striker Mark Cullen, who has been recalled by his club, Hull City. David Healy will return to the side after international duty.

LEAGUE TWO

  • BRISTOL ROVERS v TORQUAY UNITED

After picking up their first three points at home last time around, Bristol Rovers will be hoping to build on their improved form for the visit of Torquay.

David Clarkson is expected to continue in the centre of midfield, having scored from that position at Burton last weekend.

Derek Riordan is still out with a hamstring problem, so Eliot Richards and Tom Eaves should continue their partnership up front.

Rovers' centre-backs Garry Kenneth and Tom Parkes will have to be on top form to cope with League Two's in-form striker Rene Howe. The Gulls hitman has scored 9 goals already this season, including 6 in the last 6 league games.

Howe, Kevin Nicholson, Damon Lathrope and Joe Oastler should all return to the team after being rested for the JPT cup tie against Yeovil in midweek.

  • PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v ROCHDALE

After their impressive 4-1 win at Barnet last weekend, Argyle will be hoping to build on that result and achieve their second home win of the season.

Ross Jenkins is a doubt, but Onismor Bhasera is available after missing the last two games while on international duty.

Rochdale are currently in the play-off places. They will be without Ray Putterill for at least three weeks with a groin problem, but Luke Watson has recovered from the knee injury which has kept him sidelined since August.

  • EXETER CITY v CHESTERFIELD

Exeter and Chesterfield meet at St James Park, with both teams having lost their last two games.

Grecians manager Paul Tisdale has no new injury concerns. Liam Sercombe, Alan Gow and Tommy Docherty could all return to the starting eleven after coming off the bench in last week's defeat at Northampton.

Chesterfield's caretaker manager Tommy Wright has been boosted by the potential return of left-back Nathan Smith and striker Marc Richards. Sam Togwell faces a late fitness test.
