Exeter manager Paul Tisdale is set to recall veteran defender Rob Edwards for the League One home clash against runaway leaders Leeds.

The experienced Edwards is set to partner City skipper Matt Taylor in central defence following Danny Seaborne's midweek transfer switch to rivals Southampton.

With on-loan Tottenham defender Troy Archibald-Henville suspended and City's only other recognised centre half, Scot Bennett, on loan at Weymouth, Edwards is set to get the nod to start against the promotion favourites in front of an anticipated sell-out crowd at St James' Park.

Striker Barry Corr is still suspended so Tisdale is again set to pair Adam Stansfield in attack with veteran striker Marcus Stewart, who notched his 200th League goal in last week's 3-1 defeat at Norwich.

Leeds defender Andrew Hughes is expected to return to contention for the clash.

Hughes strained his hamstring in the FA Cup win at Manchester United at the start of the month and missed last week's 1-1 home draw with Wycombe.

Bradley Johnson switched to left-back to cover for Hughes last Saturday, while Aidan White provides manager Simon Grayson, who has no new injury or suspension problems, with a further option.

Ben Parker has returned to full training and came through a recent reserve-team game unscathed following a long-term groin injury, but is not yet ready for first-team action.

Max Gradel is set to make the final appearance of his current loan spell. The Leicester winger, who arrived on loan in mid-October, has reached the end of the maximum 93-day time period, but the 22-year-old could see his stay extended until the end of the season.
