Johnson confident as players soldier through
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson is backing his walking wounded to go through the pain barrier once again when his side travel to Gresty Road to face Crewe.
Ed Upson, Korey Smith and Keanu Marsh-Brown as well as James Hayter and captain Jamie McAllister all came through last-minute fitness tests and started in the Glovers' 3-1 victory at Shrewsbury in midweek, and manager Johnson is confident they will repeat the feat.
Young defender Nathan Ralph underwent minor knee surgery to remove a cyst on Monday while Aston Villa loanee Daniel Johnson, signed on Tuesday afternoon on a month-long deal, was introduced as a second-half substitute.
The Glovers, who have won four of their last five league games, named Luke Ayling on the bench after the defender missed their last three matches.
