Suspended striker Barry Corr is ruled out of Exeter's home League One game against basement side Stockport.

Corr was sent off at the end of City's 1-0 defeat at Millwall and is ruled out for five matches as it was his third red card of the season.

Craig McAllister and last Saturday's substitute Stuart Fleetwood come into contention as strikers Marcus Stewart and Adam Stansfield are sidelined by injury.

Stewart suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury following his recall at Millwall and was substituted after 15 minutes, while Stansfield is ruled out for a month by knee ligament injury.

Central defender Troy Archibald-Henville (knee) is ruled out for the rest of the season.

Exeter go into the game just one point above the bottom four.

Stockport manager Gary Ablett is boosted by the return of midfielder David Perkins.

Perkins is on loan from Colchester and was ineligible to face his parent club in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Edgeley Park.

Ablett has no other major concerns and is desperate for his side to end an horrendous 17-match winless run in League One.

He this week warned the crisis-torn club could cease to exist if their off-field problems are not resolved soon.

Stockport have been in administration for 10 months and last week the Football League refused to approve the latest takeover attempt by the Melrose Consortium.

It leaves County facing the prospect of expulsion from the Football League if a takeover is not completed by the summer.
