Gow looks to start

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale looks set to hand striker Alan Gow his first npower League Two start since late September as the City manager looks to end a run that has seen them score just once in their last six games.

The former Blackpool and Rangers playmaker came through the entire of their 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Bury unscathed and now looks set to start the home game with AFC Wimbledon.

Irish striker John O'Flynn was introduced for Steve Tully at half-time at Gigg Lane and Tisdale may be tempted to give the former Barnet man the nod as he looks to win at home for the first time since September 18.

Tisdale is also likely to field regulars Scot Bennett and Craig Woodman who know a yellow card against the Dons would rule them out of Saturday's clash with Fleetwood.

AFC Wimbledon have signed Brentford midfielder Jake Reeves on a two-month loan deal and the 19-year-old will go straight into Neal Ardley's squad for the trip to Exeter.

Norwich loanee George Francomb also returns after being ineligible for Saturday's 1-1 FA Cup draw against York as his parent club do not want him cup-tied.

Louis Harris came in for Francomb in a reshuffled midfield at the weekend and could be the one to make way.

Defenders Callum McNaughton and Mat Mitchel-King were unused substitutes on Saturday following lengthy injury lay-offs and should be involved again.

McNaughton has been sidelined since suffering a cruciate ligament injury in March while fellow centre-half Mitchel-King has been out since August with a back problem.

Top scorer Byron Harrison is in line to return to the starting line-up after dropping to the bench at York.
