John O'Flynn is pushing for a place in the Exeter starting line-up for the visit of Tranmere.

The four-goal striker has been struggling with a groin injury recently, but the Grecians have had a week off which has given him extra time to recover.

O'Flynn's return means Paul Tisdale has plenty of attacking options with Daniel Nardiello staking his claim with a late equaliser as a substitute to salvage a point against Oldham last time out.

The enforced break, due to Exeter being knocked out of the FA Cup and then seeing their midweek JPT clash postponed, has also given defender Richard Duffy a better chance of shaking off a slight hamstring injury.

The match is subject to a pitch inspection on Saturday morning.

Tranmere boss Les Parry has a number of injury concerns.

Marlon Broomes and Tim Cathalina are injured, Joss Labadie is suspended and Enoch Showunmi is a doubt.

Parry said: "Marlon is still a way away but he is improving which is nice because we were worried about him at one point.

"Enoch still hasn't trained and if he does come it will be a gamble, but he's important to us so it could be a gamble worth taking.

"Tim Cathalina still hasn't trained and is out for the weekend, plus we've got Joss Labadie suspended."

Alan Mahon and Sam Morrow remain sidelined with injuries and will also miss out.
