Exeter manager Paul Tisdale expects long-term injury victim Troy Archibald-Henville to be back to full fitness inside a month.

Archibald-Henville has been sidelined since January after picking up a troublesome knee ligament injury but the Grecians boss has revealed the 21-year-old is back in full training. Tisdale feels the defender is building up to match fitness and could be back in contention within four weeks.

Tisdale told the club's official website: "Troy has been training fully so he is coming back into the reckoning but to put it in context he hasn't played a game since the Yeovil match back in January."

He added: "He has only been back in training for a week now and even though he is a very good player, eight or nine months is a very long time to be out.

"I don't think he will be selected in the next few weeks."
