Nichols pushing for recall
Exeter could recall Tom Nichols to their starting line-up when they host Torquay.
The 20-year-old had to settle for a 22-minute substitute appearance in Friday's 1-1 draw at Chesterfield having started City's last nine matches up front and may be recalled in place of John O'Flynn.
Christy Pym looks set to continue in goal instead of Artur Krysiak while manager Paul Tisdale has a number of options should he decide to shuffle his pack with David Wheeler, Jimmy Keohane and Matt Gill pushing to start.
The Grecians have won every Devon derby this season and will look to extend that run to four games at St James Park.
Torquay will be without Shamir Goodwin when they make the short trip.
The winger suffered a thigh muscle injury in training which saw him miss Friday's 1-0 defeat to Dagenham and he looks unlikely to feature again this season for the Gulls, who could be relegated at the home of their local rivals.
Chris Hargreaves' men, eight points from safety, know anything but a win will see them drop out of the Football League and even three points may not be enough if other results go against them.
Winger Billy Bodin, the Gulls' best performer in their home defeat to the Grecians back in December, looks set to keep his place in Goodwin's absence but Jayden Stockley serves the final game of his three-match ban for a red card against Scunthorpe.
