Danny Wilson is set to keep faith with his Swindon side as they entertain Exeter.

The Robins` automatic promotion hopes were dealt a blow on Saturday when they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at Colchester, but Wilson is expected to stand by his men and name the same side.

If Wilson is tempted to make changes, Vincent Pericard could be a beneficiary in attack after he made a full recovery from a recent hamstring niggle to play his part as a substitute against the Us.

Callum Kennedy (pelvis) played an hour for the reserves after his lengthy absence last week and could still return this season, but Kurt Hammonds (knee) and Alan O`Brien (hamstring) remain unavailable.

Young right-back Nathan Thompson has also suffered a hip flexor injury but will be back in training later on in the week.

A win for the Robins will see them climb back into the top two, overtaking Millwall and Leeds, though that may only be for 24 hours as everyone else plays on Tuesday night.MExeter boss Paul Tisdale could recall fit-again striker Barry Corr for the trip to promotion-chasing Swindon.

Corr was ruled out of Easter Monday's goalless draw at Brentford by a groin injury after failing a late fitness test but was introduced as a substitute during Saturday's 0-0 home draw with Leyton Orient and is now pushing for a start.

The Grecians continue to wait on the fitness of veteran utility player Rob Edwards, who has been ruled out of the last two goalless games by a hamstring injury.

City forward Adam Stansfield, who has been missing in recent weeks, was last week diagnosed with bowel cancer and will be out for the foreseeable future.

City are now unbeaten in eight games and go into the encounter at the County Ground four points above the drop zone.
