Match Preview
Troy Brown in line for Exeter return

Exeter expect Troy Brown to boost their Sky Bet League Two play-off push at home to Morecambe.

Defender Brown missed the Good Friday win over Barnet through illness and was only fit enough to sit on the bench in Monday's loss at Cambridge.

Brown is expected to replace Troy Archibald-Henville, while midfielder Lee Holmes is in contention to make his first start since Boxing Day following ankle ligament damage.

David Wheeler could also return to the starting line-up after dropping to the bench for the 1-0 defeat at Cambridge.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley will hope that defender Lee Molyneux will be back in contention as his side look to secure mathematical safety.

The 28-year-old was on the bench for Monday's draw with Colchester having suffered a foot injury after scoring the winning goal at Stevenage on Good Friday.

Defender Ryan Edwards is a doubt after a recurrence of a knee injury which ruled him out of the U's clash.

The Shrimps are nine points clear of the bottom two with three games remaining.
