Paul Huntington injury blow for Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town are likely to be without defender Paul Huntington for three-to-four weeks after he underwent surgery on his broken hand.

The 24-year-old broke his finger in the Glovers' 2-2 draw at Colchester United on 8 October.

He will not be able to play again until the metal rod that doctors inserted in his finger is removed.

Meanwhile, midfielder Gavin Williams is at least six weeks away from returning from a knee injury.

The 31-year-old, who rejoined Yeovil for a fourth spell in the summer, has not played since their 4-3 defeat by Preston on 9 September.

"It's a very frustrating time at the moment," he told BBC Somerset.

"I'm not able to do a lot. I went in the pool for the first time recently which was exciting, believe it or not.

"But I've got to go down to London to see a specialist and hopefully he can give me the go ahead to crack on with rehab.

"I'm a terrible watcher, especially as the team hasn't been doing so well, it makes it that little bit more frustrating."
