Bobby Olejnik set to continue in goal as Exeter face Yeovil

Bobby Olejnik is set to continue in goal for Exeter as first-choice Christy Pym has missed the last five matches with a groin injury, and was still not fit to make the bench at Luton last weekend.

Olejnik deputised to good effect again, though, in the hard-fought 1-1 draw away to the Grecians' fellow promotion chasers.

Ollie Watkins is in the reckoning to start again, having taken in the full 90 minutes against the Hatters following a substitute's appearance in the previous win against Cheltenham as Paul Tisdale continues to ration in-form striker Reuben Reid's playing time.

Lee Holmes, Robbie Simpson and Tom McCready remain Exeter's long-term absentees.

Yeovil midfielder Otis Khan and defender Nathan Smith are back in training but Saturday's match may come too soon for the duo.

Khan has been sidelined for almost three months while Smith has struggled with medial knee ligament that has kept him out of action for six weeks but both have stepped up their rehabilitation.

Alex Lawless is a doubt with an ankle complaint which has kept him out of Darren Way's side for their last two games.

Glovers skipper Darren Ward (knee) is sidelined for the rest of the season.
