Paul Tisdale has no new injury worries to contend with as his relegated Exeter side prepare to bid farewell to League One.

Defender Richard Duffy and striker John O'Flynn returned to action from the substitutes' bench against Carlisle last weekend, the former having shaken off a groin injury.

Jonathan Fortune (hamstring) was an unused sub in the same match and all three players are now pushing for starts.

Tisdale still expects to be without Jamie Cureton and Jake Taylor as the forward duo continue to struggle with muscular injuries.

Danny Coles remains a long-term absentee as he looks to make his way back to full fitness from a fractured spine sustained earlier in the campaign.

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson will hand late fitness tests to Richard Cresswell, Neill Collins, Matt Hill and Marcus Williams.

Striker Cresswell has been struggling with a shoulder injury that has required injections and restricted him to the substitutes' bench last week, Collins sustained a bruised knee in last Saturday's draw with Stevenage and fellow defenders Hill and Williams are also nursing knocks.

Wilson has no other new injury or suspension problems for a game United have to win to stand any chance of winning automatic promotion, but the absence of leading goalscorer Ched Evans continues to leave a big hole up front.

Chris Porter, Michael O'Halloran, on loan from Bolton, and James Beattie are all vying for a starting place up front, while Danny Philliskirk gives Wilson an alternative option.
