Craig Woodman could return for Grecians

Exeter hope to have Craig Woodman available for the Sky Bet League Two visit of Leyton Orient.

Left-back Woodman missed the 4-1 win at Newport on Saturday after picking up a groin injury at Yeovil on Boxing Day.

Striker Reuben Reid and defender Troy Archibald-Henville, who has made only one brief appearance as a substitute since joining the Grecians last summer, are in contention after injury, but boss Paul Tisdale is expected to keep changes to a minimum after a six-game unbeaten run.

Midfielder Lee Holmes faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines with twisted ankle ligaments sustained on Boxing Day.

Orient boss Andy Edwards must decide whether to include Jay Simpson after the striker asked to leave the club.

Simpson, last season's top scorer, was not involved in the 1-1 draw with Cambridge on New Year's Eve.

Defender Teddy Mezague picked up a groin problem, so is doubtful, with Yvan Erichot and Callum Kennedy options to come into the side.

Midfielder Liam Kelly remains a long-term absentee with a torn hamstring.
