Grecians in fine fettle for derby clash
Exeter could be at full strength for the derby showdown with Plymouth.
The Grecians' play-off hopes were ended in the crushing defeat at Tranmere but they can have a big say in which division relegation-threatened Argyle will be playing in next season.
Boss Paul Tisdale will assess the fitness of midfielder David Noble after he missed the Rovers clash with a hamstring injury.
But forward Daniel Nardiello and defender Matt Taylor are fully fit again are available after recovering from knocks.
Goalkeeper Artur Krysiak returned to the side after loanee Ben Hamer returned to parent club Reading and he will start again, with youngster James Wood set to be named among the subs.
City have won five of their last six matches but were beaten 2-0 by Plymouth earlier this season.
Peter Reid will call on a number of players to play through the pain barrier.
Argyle desperately need the points to boost their survival hopes, but Devon rivals Exeter are looking to finish the season on a high despite being out of the play-off race.
Reid has led his side to three wins in the last four matches to move to within three points of safety, but he has had to rely on a number of walking wounded.
Captain Carl Fletcher, along with midfield duo Kari Arnason and Simon Walton are ready to take on the Grecians, as is striker Rory Fallon.
Walton featured in the 1-0 victory over MK Dons despite carrying an ankle injury, but midfielder Chris Clark (knee) missed out and will be sidelined again.
Striker Rory Patterson is back in contention after serving a one-game ban.
Dunne decides Devon derby
James Dunne settled a keenly-contested Devon derby with the only goal of the game as Exeter heaped more misery on relegation-threatened Plymouth.
City shaded a tight and cagey first half, but neither side was able to make a breakthrough.
David Noble's long-range shot was deflected over the Plymouth crossbar, while Daniel Nardiello got on the end of a flowing Exeter move but could only poke the ball wide.
Argyle rarely threatened until just before half-time when Exeter goalkeeper Artur Krysiak was adjudged to have picked up a Richard Duffy backpass six yards from his own goal line. The ball was laid of to Luke Summerfield, but the Exeter defence held firm to keep out his thunderous shot.
City took the lead in the 46th minute when Dunne latched onto Jamie Cureton's cute flick and lashed a stunning volley past David Button from 18 yards.
Plymouth, with nothing to lose, went for broke and Rory Fallon had the ball in the net only for his effort to be disallowed for offside, while Yannick Bolasie twice went close for Argyle as Exeter held on for the win.
