Goalkeeper Ben Hamer is in line to make his debut for Exeter against Walsall after signing on loan from Reading for three months.
The 23-year-old joined from the npower Championship club this week following a series of spells at Brentford.
His arrival could signal the end of Paul Jones' long stint at St James's Park, with boss Paul Tisdale confirming the stopper has declared his desire to leave in search of first-team opportunities.
Midfielder Ryan Harley has recently been the subject of heated transfer speculation and missed Exeter's recent trips to Brentford in the league and Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
However, boss Paul Tisdale remains hopeful that Harley will stay at the club and he could feature against the Saddlers on his 26th birthday.
