Tisdale could ring the changes
Paul Tisdale has not ruled out making changes to his Exeter side for the visit of Burton, despite having recorded back-to-back league wins.
The opening-day defeat to Morecambe has been followed by impressive away victories over Aldershot and Accrington, but the Grecians boss has not ruled out making alterations to his fully-fit side.
Jamie Cureton and Alan Gow, who have hit two goals each in the first three league games, are likely to get the nod up front, but John O'Flynn's substitute performances may earn him a starting place.
Tisdale told the Exeter Express and Echo: "It is more to do with the style of our play and suiting it to the opposition rather than the personnel. So I am not adverse to changing a winning team.
"I am quite comfortable doing it if I think the style needed to win the game is aided by making a change so I wouldn't rule that out. It's good to have healthy competition for places."
Tisdale added: "John [O'Flynn] looked good and he is certainly worth a place in the team. It is just a case of when he gets it."
Calvin Zola is the only fresh injury concern for Burton ahead of their return to league action.
Albion boss Gary Rowett would have liked to keep an unchanged team for the trip to Devon following the 4-2 victory at Leicester in the the Capital One Cup in midweek.
However, Zola, so effective as the lone striker against the Foxes, is feeling the effects of his efforts.
"Calvin suits that role more than our other strikers and he was outstanding. But he's feeling a bit sore and tender, having only just come back from injury," said Rowett. "He's probably the only one feeling the effects of it, though."
Jimmy Phillips and captain John McGrath remain sidelined with foot injuries.
Burton travel to St James Park for the first time since 2007 when both clubs were then playing in the Conference. That time around Albion won 4-1 with two strikes each from Shaun Harrad and Daryl Clare.
