Ward pondering options
Bristol Rovers boss John Ward could shuffle his pack when his side host Exeter.
The Pirates, 2-1 winners over Crawley on Wednesday night, will have played three matches in six days by the time they travel to Birmingham on Tuesday evening for their third-round clash so Ward could make a number of changes.
Winger Alefe Santos will hope to boost Ward's options having dropped out of the FA Cup victory due to illness while Tom Lockyer will keep his place having returned from suspension.
Oliver Norburn is another option in midfield while Danny Woodards is set to be on the bench against his former club as he ups his comeback from a serious knee injury.
Exeter duo Matt Gill and Danny Coles have outside chances of facing their former club on Saturday.
Gill, whose deal with the Pirates was terminated less than a week ago, is expected to return to training in the build up to kick off at The Memorial Stadium and could make his comeback to the squad having missed the 1-0 loss to Mansfield with a hamstring injury.
While Gill will be assessed on Saturday City captain Coles, who has been sidelined for three weeks after a knee operation, hopes to return to training this week but only has an outside chance of being available, having not played since November.
It means Paul Tisdale could select the same line-up that lost to the Stags but won their last away game, a 3-1 victory at Torquay.
