New signing Ryan Taylor is expected to go straight into Exeter's squad for the home clash with Walsall.
Striker Taylor, 21, joined the Grecians on loan from Rotherham on Thursday but may have to settle for a place on the bench.
City have pieced together an impressive four-match unbeaten run and boss Paul Tisdale has named an unchanged starting line-up for the past two matches.
Top scorer Adam Stansfield and experienced striker Marcus Stewart are set for their third successive starts in attack despite the form of substitute Richard Logan, who scored last Saturday's 89th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Wycombe.
West Brom striker Marcus Haber has returned to his parent club following a month-long loan spell with the Grecians, but Irish forward Barry Corr returns from suspension.
Corr was introduced as a second-half substitute at Wycombe and scored a hat-trick in a midweek 4-3 reserve team win at Swindon.
Walsall will be without central defenders Mark Hughes and Clayton McDonald.
Captain Hughes will serve the second game of his three-match ban while McDonald joins him in the stands having being sent off in Tuesday`s 3-0 defeat at Southend, meaning he now serves a three-game ban of his own.
That means manager Chris Hutchings is now left with a selection poser at the heart of his defence.
But Hutchings` options have been increased by the fact Matt Richards is back in training having come off against Southend at half-time with an ankle injury.
He will be assessed over the next 24 hours along with midfielder Dwayne Mattis, who has also returned to training having been taken off at Roots Hall with a recurrence of an Achilles problem.
