Exeter boss Paul Tisdale could make changes as he attempts to end a woeful run of home form.

The Grecians have won just one of their last eight matches at St James Park but Tisdale's side are just two points outside the play-offs thanks to seven away wins, matched only by top two Gillingham and Port Vale.

Following the 3-1 defeat to Oxford Tisdale said: "Games at home are different to games away in the way that the opposition play and we have to find a way that fits and works for us."

Tisdale could welcome back midfielder Tommy Doherty, who has been out with a hamstring injury for the past month, as he searches for a solution.

Striker Jamie Reid impressed as a substitute on his Football League debut and is pushing for inclusion while Kevin Amankwaah, Arron Davies and Jimmy Keohane are further options.

Barnet striker Taiwo Atieno could make his debut against the Grecians.

The 27-year-old was an unused substitute for the Boxing Day win at Gillingham having agreed a deal hours earlier.

But the former Torquay man may be forced to settle for the bench once more after the Bees recorded back-to-back wins for only the second time this season.

Midfielder Clovis Kamdjo faces a late fitness test. He missed out with the same knock that forced him off at half-time against Burton last week.

Fellow midfielder John Oster is likely to continue in his place should he fail to recover in time.

Striker Collins John is still sidelined after undergoing hernia surgery last week while Ishmail Kamara (shoulder) and Steve Kabba (knee) are also unavailable.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
