Tisdale unlikely to make many changes against Stevenage

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale will resist the temptation to make wholesale changes against Stevenage, despite failing to win either of their last two games.

The Grecians lost 3-0 at Plymouth last Saturday and conceded two late goals to draw with Notts County on Tuesday.

However, Tisdale has not been upset with the performances and will focus on how to replace the suspended Jake Taylor after the midfielder was sent off for two bookable offences at Meadow Lane.

Tisdale's options include playing Jordan Tillson in the centre of the park or moving Ryan Harley into a holding midfield role and bringing Joel Grant into the side.

Stevenage manager Darren Sarll has no fresh injury or suspension concerns ahead of their trip to St James Park.

Striker Jake Hyde is unavailable after he joined National League South side Maidenhead on a month's loan on Thursday.

Hyde, who joined the side during the summer, has been struggling with injury and is using the loan to help build his fitness.

Tom Conlon (knee) and Dean Wells (groin) remain sidelined due to injury.
