Exeter boss Paul Tisdale looks set to name an unchanged side for the third game running in the clash with Bristol Rovers.

The Grecians drew 0-0 at Southend on Saturday and Tisdale should keep faith with the same 11 players for the St James' Park encounter.

Midfielder Alex Russell is the only absentee as he continues to struggle with a back problem.

Top scorer Adam Stansfield and on-loan West Brom forward Marcus Haber are again expected to lead the attack, even though they were replaced by substitutes Stuart Fleetwood and Richard Logan during the second half at Roots Hall.

With 11 games remaining City are four points from safety, having gone nine games without a win following their impressive victory over Leeds in Janaury.

Rovers have extended the loan of defender Daniel Jones until the end of the season.

The Wolves man, 23, has started all six games since arriving last month, coinciding with an upturn in form that has seen Rovers lose just once during that period to maintain their outside hopes of a play-off place.

Manager Paul Trollope is hoping he will be joined in defence by Byron Anthony, who was stretchered off with a suspected broken leg just before half-time in Saturday`s goalless draw against Tranmere.

X-rays have since confirmed there was no serious damage and Anthony has an outside chance of being fit.

The club are hopeful striker Jo Kuffour will be available having been dogged with a series of migraines since Saturday`s clash, while Carl Regan (knee) has stepped up his rehabilitation and may also be in contention.

But on-loan midfielder Wayne Brown has been recalled by parent club Fulham.
