Grecians wait on Tully
Exeter are sweating on the fitness of full-back Steve Tully for the clash with Bury.
Tully was withdrawn during the 2-1 defeat to Notts County on Tuesday night with a hand injury which he originally sustained in the victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the Grecians' previous match at St James Park.
Otherwise, manager Paul Tisdale has a fully-fit and suspension-free squad at his disposal.
Tisdale told the club's official website: "At this stage we have a doubt over Steve Tully with a very sore hand. He broke it against Sheffield Wednesday and he is having a specialist opinion about whether he can play with it.
"Although we have bumps and bruises we are otherwise ready to go."
Ashley Eastham is an injury doubt for Bury.
On loan Blackpool defender Eastham suffered a hamstring injury during the 1-1 midweek draw with Chesterfield.
The club are awaiting the result of a scan before deciding whether the 20-year-old is fit to take part at St James Park.
Shakers boss Richie Barker has no other significant injury worries, although he admits disruption to his squad's training routine during the recent cold snap has not made life easy for those nursing niggling bumps and bruises.
"I'm getting sick of Astroturf and I'm sure the players are," he told the Manchester Evening News. "We're starting to get a few sore knees and sore backs understandably."
Slick City sink Shakers
Three goals in a scintillating first half helped Exeter to a 3-2 victory over Bury at St James' Park.
The hosts made a flying start and found themselves 2-0 up inside the opening nine minutes. The first goal came when Billy Jones' corner kick found its way to Troy Archibald-Henville and he headed home his second goal of the season.
Daniel Nardiello quickly made it 2-0 after Jake Taylor was fouled by Efe Sodje inside the box and the former Manchester United trainee coolly dispatched the penalty into the bottom corner.
Liam Sercombe saw his shot hit the underside of the crossbar for Exeter before Bury pulled a goal back when David Amoo finished from close range after a goalmouth scramble.
Richard Logan made it 3-1 just before half-time when he nodded in at the back post after a brilliant run and cross by Taylor.
After the excitement of the first half, the second was much quieter with chances few and far between.
Bury had the better of it and substitute Ashley Eastham capitalised on some shoddy defending by Exeter at a corner, but his goal came too late in the day for the visitors.
