Jamie Cureton is Exeter's only doubt as Paul Tisdale's men entertain high-flying Huddersfield.

The veteran striker was substituted 36 minutes into the goalless draw with Swindon last weekend due to a hamstring injury and missed the midweek defeat against Southampton.

While injury looks set to sideline Cureton, on-loan goalkeeper Ben Hamer has vowed to play through the pain barrier.

The 23-year-old suffered a groin strain against Swindon and had to rely on pain killers to get him through the 2-1 defeat to Southampton.

"I tweaked something and picked up a groin strain in the last five minutes against Swindon and, even though it's clearing up, I had to take a few pain killers to get me through the Southampton game," he said.

"I'm hoping it will be back to normal again by the weekend because I've been happy with how I'm playing but you don't really want to be playing with an injury."

Huddersfield's latest signing Danny Cadamarteri could make his second debut for the club at Exeter.

Cadamarteri left Town last summer and joined Dundee United, but this week returned to the Galpharm Stadium following his release by the Scottish club and will be included in the squad.

Midfielder Joey Gudjonsson is expected to be fit after pulling up in the midweek win over Carlisle with a suspected hamstring injury, which could turn out to have been cramp.

If Gudjonsson fails to make it, Scott Arfield or Antony Kay will stand in.

Fellow midfielder Tom Clarke remains doubtful due to an ankle injury and Town will still be without leading goalscorer Jordan Rhodes (ankle), goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee), midfielder Damien Johnson (knee) and defenders Tamas Kadar (hamstring) and Liam Ridehalgh (glandular fever).

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?
