Exeter boss Paul Tisdale could name an unchanged side.

The Grecians moved within a point of league leaders Gillingham last weekend with a 4-2 win at Oxford.

Jamie Cureton netted a brace while strike partner John O'Flynn was also on target and the pair are set to continue in attack.

Skipper Danny Coles returned from a groin problem in that fixture and is set to keep his place having come through the clash unscathed.

Last weekend's substitutes Tommy Doherty and Guillem Bauza both offer fresh attacking options but are likely to settle for a place on the bench again.

Tisdale's side have taken 12 points from a possible 15 so far this season as they bid for an immediate return to League One.

York midfielder Paddy McLaughlin will return to the squad following international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s.

McLaughlin was involved in Northern Ireland's European championship qualifiers last weekend and missed York's home draw with Chesterfield.

Manager Gary Mills must decide whether to recall McLaughlin to the starting line-up or stick with the attack-minded quartet of Michael Coulson, Matty Blair, Ashley Chambers and Jason Walker.

Midfielder Scott Kerr, sidelined since March with a cruciate ligament injury, is back in training but remains two weeks away from a return to match action.

Defenders Chris Doig and David McGurk and striker Oli Johnson are all still receiving treatment for their respective injuries and will not be included as the Minstermen look to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches.
