Home side starting to take advantage.

The teams are out and the game is underway.

2:47pm

Yeovil's last league win was a 2-0 success at Birmingham on January 18. Fans will be hoping on-loan midfielder Duane Holmes will provide a much-needed injection - he is making his debut following his move from Huddersfield.

2:36pm

Today's opponents are only two places above the drop zone with eight points more than the Glovers, so this game could prove pivoltal in Yeovil's fight for survival. 

Doncaster came out 2-1 winners when the sides met in the reverse fixture on November 22.

2:34pm

Yeovil: Stech; Ayling, Webster, Duffy, McAllister; Lawrence, Edwards, Ralls, Holmes; Miller, Hayter.

Doncaster: Johnstone; Quinn, Meite, Khumalo, Husband; Keegan, Wellens, Coppinger, Duffy; Bowery, Brown

2:33pm

YEOVIL have the chance to move off the bottom of the table this afternoon if they can pick up a win at home to Doncaster.
