Sercombe set for Grecians return
Exeter could have Liam Sercombe available for the visit of Leyton Orient.
The midfielder has been struggling with an ankle injury but has been training all week and could be included in Paul Tisdale's squad.
Billy Jones could be another man available to Tisdale after overcoming a back problem.
Striker John O'Flynn is definitely out as he struggles with a knock picked up against Dagenham a fortnight ago, while goalkeeper Artur Krysiak is also unlikely to be risked as he has a thigh complaint.
It is eighth against ninth at St James Park with the Grecians looking to go level on points with Orient if they can get a win.
They have claimed maximum points in their last three matches and could yet gatecrash the play-offs.
Leyton Orient have injury worries over Ben Chorley, Jimmy Smith and Alex Revell.
Centre-half Chorley has missed the last four matches with a thigh problem and is doubtful along with midfielder Smith, who sat out Tuesday night's draw against Carlisle with a knee injury.
Striker Revell will miss the trip and could struggle to play again this season due to knee ligament damage.
But defender Adam Barrett has extended his loan spell from Crystal Palace until the end of the season and should keep his place at the back.
The Os are three points off the play-offs with five matches remaining but have won only once in their last seven outings.
Cureton double keeps Grecians in hunt
Two goals from top scorer Jamie Cureton kept Exeter's slim play-off hopes alive as they beat Leyton Orient 2-1 at St James' Park.
Cureton struck the first inside the opening five minutes as the Grecians started well. The veteran forward was in the right place to slide home from six yards from Daniel Nardiello's fine cross.
Exeter had chances to increase their lead, but were pegged back as Orient's Dean Cox equalised in the 13th minute in spectacular style, lashing the ball into the top corner from 25 yards.
Cox hit the post as the visitors enjoyed their best spell of the game just before half-time, but with 13 minutes remaining Cureton struck again, his 19th of the season, following up Richard Logan's saved shot to tap into an empty goal.
The goal took the stuffing out of Orient, who rarely tested Exeter goalkeeper Ben Hamer in the second half.
The victory takes Exeter level on points with Orient, five points adrift of the final play-off place with four games remaining.
