The sentence would be clearer if rewritten as:
This sentence might need yet another piece of work from you.
This sentence might require yet another piece of work from you.
In other words, I don't believe "yet another" is the problematic part of the sentence here.
In this word couple, "yet" signifies repetition, or "again." You would therefore say "yet another" when "another" alone has already been used, and you want to indicate "another again."
Here's an example: "I know you already gave me a piece of pie, but now I want you to give me another. And I like it so much, I'll need yet another one later on!"
Here's another: His boss asked him for another report. Once he had turned that one in, his boss asked him for yet another.
Here's yet another example: Another meteor hit the ground, but Herman stood still. When yet another meteor landed right behind him, however, he ran.
Care for yet another? No? Then I'll stop there. But wait. Yet another point is that I should answer your question as to where can you use "yet another" in a sentence. The answer is you can place it anywhere; notice the examples I have already given? :)
You could use parentheses:
This sentence may require (yet another) piece of work from you.
or you could omit "piece of" altogether, and just say "more":
This sentence may require more work from you.
