Captain Luke Wilkinson could be back in contention for the weekend’s visit to Solihull Moors.

The centre-half has been missing since limping off after 28 minutes of the 2-0 home defeat to Chesterfield.

Speaking after the win over Woking on Tuesday night, manager Darren Sarll said: “I think Luke may make Saturday which would obviously be a huge boost to everyone including the average age.

Hopefully he can play some part, I’m not sure how long, that will be calculated based on Thursday and Friday’s training.

“But it would be a huge addition and coming back off a win does not feel so desperate to throw him back in.

“I thought (Max) Hunt and (Josh) Staunton in particular were fantastic tonight.

The boss also confirmed that Sonny Blu Lo-Everton missed out on the midweek win after picking up an injury against Grimsby Town at the weekend.

He also suggested that Yeovil would be interested in getting Lewis Simper back after he was recalled by Cambridge United ahead of the Woking match.

Asked about the loan midfielder, Sarll said: “It’s been stop-start (season for Lewis) and when you are in the flow of the season and someone has missed so many minutes, it is hard to get them involved.

Sonny Blu (Lo-Everton) has stepped in to those shoes and did very well, but best of luck to Lewis.

“He would love to come back, we would love to have him back if possible and maybe carry on that journey together.”

The 20-year-old, who joined on a season-long loan in July, was recalled due to a spate of injuries and suspensions at his parent club.

He was an unused substitute in Cambridge’s 1-1 draw at Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.
