Adam Stansfield and Richard Logan pressed their claims for a start at home to Millwall with goals in Exeter`s 3-1 win at Stockport.

Paul Tisdale retained the same starting XI that drew 2-2 at Colchester before Stansfield, on in the 69th minute for fellow striker Barry Corr - and Logan, a 85th-minute replacement for Marcus Stewart, gave the City boss food for thought with stoppage-time goals.

With Paul Jones (knee) still sidelined, experienced keeper Andy Marriott keeps his place in goal following a five-match unbeaten run despite the return to fitness of on-loan Tottenham Hotspur teenager Oscar Jansson.

Millwall will be without Tony Craig and Neil Harris.

Craig could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a fractured cheekbone and eye socket during Saturday's defeat by Wycombe. The defender was taken to hospital and is due to have an operation early this week.

Top scorer Harris missed the 2-0 home reverse with a back injury and will not be fit to travel to the south west.

Fellow striker Gary Alexander has been ruled out until the new year with his heel problem so Jason Price and Steve Morison will continue up front.

Winger James Henry remains doubtful with a hamstring strain but midfielder Ali Fuseini is back in training following a knee injury and could figure.
