Exeter's top scorer Jamie Cureton looks set to make his 700th appearance in English football in the televised Devon derby.
The 37-year-old has served his three-match suspension and is expected to replace the injured John O'Flynn as the Grecians look to continue their unbeaten start to 2013.
Alan Gow's late penalty at Plainmoor means City have taken 10 points from a possible 12 since the turn of the year and they now prepare to face the Gulls for the second successive match.
Since that 1-1 draw Paul Tisdale has added midfielder Mark Molesley to his squad following his release from Bournemouth and the former Plymouth loanee could go straight into the starting line-up.
Molesley has been signed as a replacement for Liam Sercombe who looks set to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.
O'Flynn is Exeter's only other absentee and the Irishman looks set to be sidelined for at least a month with a torn hamstring.
Torquay boss Martin Ling has no fresh injury worries as his side.
The sides drew 1-1 earlier this month and the cancellation of their clash with Chesterfield means the Gulls have not played since then.
Danny Stevens looked lively having come off the bench and the winger is pushing for a start in the televised clash.
The postponement allowed striker Ryan Jarvis more time for his dead leg to settle down and he is available to feature again.
Ian Morris (Achilles tendon) and Lloyd Macklin (broken metatarsal) are still sidelined.
Alan Gow's late equaliser at Plainmoor means United have not won a game since December 1 - a run of six matches.
