Exeter boss Paul Tisdale could be without Richard Duffy when his side host Tranmere.

The 25-year-old defender started in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at the hands of Hartlepool despite doubts over a head injury, but only lasted 64 minutes.

Liam Sercombe could be set for a recall if Duffy is deemed unfit.

Defender Rob Edwards and striker Richard Logan are both pushing for recalls after replacing Billy Jones and John O'Flynn at half-time against Pools, while Daniel Nardiello is also pushing for a recall after a 25 minute substitute appearance.

Arsenal academy graduate James Dunne looks likely to continue in midfield after playing the whole game despite concerns over a badly bruised leg.

The Grecians currently sit 15th in npower League One and will be looking to return to winning ways following their first defeat in five league games at the weekend.

Tranmere defender Zoumana Bakayogo is rated as doubtful.

The left-back picked up a foot injury during Saturday's 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Yeovil and looks certain to miss out.

With Aaron Cresswell on the sidelines due to a hip injury, the loss Bakayogo would give Rovers boss Les Parry a headache at left-back.

Dale Jennings, Alan Mahon, Ryan Fraughan and Marlon Broomes are all nursing injuries and Joss Labadie serves the second game of a two-match suspension.

Parry is demanding an improvement from his players after Saturday's defeat condemned Rovers to their third straight loss.

He said: "I don't mind taking responsibility for things and facing up to them. Sometimes the players have to face up to them as well."
