Exeter manager Paul Tisdale will be without striker Jamie Cureton for the visit of Carlisle.

The 35-year-old, who has netted four goals in all competitions this season, sustained a knock in last week's 2-1 defeat at Walsall and will miss out.

Daniel Nardiello also went off injured having replaced Cureton against the Saddlers, but has trained this week and will feature.

Defender Troy Archibald-Henville was sent off for a second bookable offence last time out and is suspended.

Skipper Matt Taylor remains sidelined with the back injury that has kept him out since the first week of the season.

The loss at the Banks's Stadium was the Grecians` second in three league games and they will be aiming to get back to winning ways against the Cumbrians.

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott must decide whether to put new loan signing Mike Grella straight into his starting line-up at St James` Park.

Grella arrived for an initial month from Leeds in midweek and could partner Gary Madine, but Abbott may be reluctant to break up his partnership with Francois Zoko which has helped lift the Cumbrians up to second in the table.

Peter Murphy will continue in central defence as on-loan Lubo Michalik is still sidelined with a hamstring complaint, and Abbott is not expected to make any other changes.

Assistant player-manager Graham Kavanagh is unavailable after having knee surgery last Friday, while defender Danny Livesey (groin) and midfield pair Paul Thirlwell and Marc Bridge-Wilkinson (both knee) are still sidelined.

Richard Offiong, back from his loan spell at Darlington, is struggling with a thigh injury.
