Plymouth enjoy warm-weather training in Spain ahead of Devon derby with Exeter

The Pilgrims headed south in preparation for their Devon derby sell-out at home to in-form Exeter.

Derek Adams prescribed a week of warm-weather training in southern Spain for his promotion hopefuls as they seek to keep the pressure on Doncaster at the top of League Two by trying to end the long unbeaten run which has seen the Grecians surge up to fourth before this weekend's short trip down the A38.

Second-placed Plymouth may have Ryan Donaldson back to start in midfield after his return as a substitute last week following his broken jaw.

Gary Miller, Connor Smith, Jimmy Spencer (all ankle) and David Ijaha (pelvis) may not be ready to return yet.

Exeter have doubts over strike pair Reuben Reid and Ollie Watkins.

Reid missed last weekend's 4-0 victory over Crewe through illness and also had a couple of days away from the training ground this week.

The 11-goal Watkins could also miss out after hobbling off during the Crewe win, but defender Jordan Moore-Taylor (nose) should be fit.

If Reid and Watkins are unavailable, Robbie Simpson and Liam McAlinden will link up in attack as the fourth-placed Grecians seek to extend their 12-game unbeaten record.
