Rob Atkinson: Could make return

Rob Atkinson: Could make return

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Accrington Stanley and Exeter at the Crown Ground.

Accrington have Lee Naylor ready to play again as they return from a two-week hiatus to face Exeter.

The full-back was absent for their defeat to Northampton on November 30 because of bone bruising on his foot, but the ex-Wolves defender has been back in training this week.

Another who trained with James Beattie's side on Thursday was defender Rob Atkinson, although he is still being eased back after a recent hamstring problem.

Apart from the absence of young goalkeeper Andrew Dawber, kept out by a groin injury, Beattie has no other injury or suspension concerns to contend with.

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale, meanwhile, will be without captain Danny Coles as his side look to get back to winning ways at Accrington.

The former Hull defender has undergone a knee operation which will rule him out for between six to eight weeks. It means he joins Matt Oakley, who is ruled out until February, on the sidelines.

Forward Jamie Reid continued his recovery from a groin injury with a substitute appearance in the reserves' 1-0 win over Yeovil in midweek and he will hope for a spot on the bench.

The Grecians, who won 3-0 at The Crown Ground last season, head north looking for their first win in 10 games.
