YEOVIL Town could look to keep both Nottingham Forest’s Ishmael Miller and Everton’s John Lundstram for the rest of the season after making impressive debuts.

The Glovers swooped for the attacker and midfielder on loan transfer deadline day last week, along with Liverpool’s Adam Morgan.

The trio headed south until the New Year, with Morgan poised to pen a permanent two-and-a-half-year contract in January.

Manager Gary Johnson had also already suggested that Lundstram could stay longer on a temporary deal and has now hinted he may look to tempt Miller back for an extended period.

He said: “We will be working very hard to keep them because they are us, they are our mentality and spirit and that’s not very hard to find these days. Some of my loans go back pretty quickly.”

Yeovil entertain Blackpool this evening in the Sky Bet Championship having climbed off the foot of the table on Saturday by beating Watford 3-0. Miller partnered Morgan in attack andnetted one, while Lundstram set up Joe Edwards’ third.

“It’s nice to know that people like Ishmael Miller, the young boy from Liverpool and the young boy from Everton have chosen to come to us,” added Johnson

“They’ve heard something about us, they’ve all seen us play, they all know how unlucky we have been and they’ve all decided to ply their trade with us in sleepy old Yeovil.

“Ishmael had had a couple of injuries, Forest were going well and he couldn’t quite get in. I made a sneaky phone call to Billy Davies and had a chat with him.

“We’re not a threat to him and as we had beaten them then maybe Ishmael may stand a better chance of beating teams that are a threat to them.

“He’s been part of that at Watford now as they are more of a threat to Forest than we are, unless we put together an unbelievable run which is probably not going to happen.”
