Peterborough forward Lee Tomlin should return to the squad for the visit of Exeter.

The former Rushden & Diamonds man signed an extended contract at London Road this week and could come back in after missing last week's 5-0 win at Oldham through illness.

However, he may struggle to claim his place back in the starting XI after stand-in David Ball marked his first start for the club with a goal at Boundary Park.

Midfielder Lee Frecklington underwent a hernia operation at the start of the week and will be sidelined for at least a month while new signing Paul Taylor will not feature.

The striker penned an 18-month contract this week but is not match fit and will not be considered for the time being.

Central defender Gabriel Zakuani has recovered from a shoulder injury, though striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Right-back Richard Duffy is in contention for a return to the starting line-up after fully recovering from the head injury which caused him to be named only among the substitutes against Tranmere on Tuesday.

Defender Billy Jones will return to the squad after overcoming the knock which caused him to be left out in midweek.

Tisdale must decide which system to play after switching from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 at half-time against Tranmere. If he decides on 4-3-3, strikers Daniel Nardiello and Richard Logan could be recalled to partner Jamie Cureton in attack.

The Grecians will make the trip trying to make it seven consecutive away games undefeated.
