Jimmy Smith (foot) is missing for Reds while Lee Barnard (calf), Lanre Oyebanjo (thigh) and Roarie Deacon (groin) are doubts. Josh Yorwerth is with Wales U-21s and misses the game.

 

THE FORM GUIDE               

Reds have lost two of their last nine and are unbeaten in their last five, their best run of the season.

Exeter are undefeated in six and have won their last three away games.

 

VIEW FROM THE BOSS

Mark Yates – “Exeter are one of the best footballing sides in the division and we had a cracking game with them back in November. They will still feel they can squeeze into the play-offs so we will need to be at our best but we are on a good run and want that to continue."

 

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

The first Football League meeting back in November finished 2-2 with Sonny Bradley and Luke Rooney on target for Reds.

We have also met in the Conference and three times in the FA Cup. Current assistant manager Jimmy Dack played in the first round meeting in 1994 when the home side won 1-0 at St James Park.
