Burton boss Gary Rowett is likely to name an unchanged side.

Albion impressed last weekend as they romped to a 4-0 away victory at Fleetwood and Rowett will find it hard not to go with the XI that started at Highbury Stadium.

Aaron Webster and Nathan Stanton could come back into the reckoning after calf and knee problems respectively but a place on the bench is probably the best either can hope for.

Defender Zander Diamond will serve the third game of a four-match suspension for the red card he received during the 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon on February 2.

Rowett's fourth-placed team are looking for a seventh straight league win at the Pirelli Stadium.

Exeter will hand a late fitness test to goalkeeper Artur Krysiak.

The Pole limped off at half-time of City's 2-0 win over Accrington on Friday night and he will travel with the squad to the Pirelli and be assessed.

Meanwhile, Matt Oakley and John O'Flynn could both be involved against the Brewers after spells on the sidelines.

Oakley has been missing since the start of the month while O'Flynn has not featured since mid-January with a hamstring injury and the duo are close to a return.

But manager Paul Tisdale is still without defender Myles Anderson (knee) as well as Alan Gow (thigh) and Liam Sercombe (ankle) as he prepares to take on a Burton side just one point ahead of his Grecians.
