Matt Grimes: Pushing for a start

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Exeter City and Fleetwood Town at St James Park.

Exeter have no fresh injury worries as they host Fleetwood looking to end a 13-match winless run at St James Park.

The Grecians have not taken three points on home soil since October 5 and are currently in the midst of a seven-game winless run but they do not have any absentees.

Manager Paul Tisdale named an experienced line-up against Newport last week with 33-year-old Matt Gill and Danny Butterfield, 34, being recalled but youngsters Matt Grimes and Jamie Reid are pushing to start against the Cod Army.

The likes of David Wheeler, Sam Parkin and Arron Davies will also hope to be involved.

Iain Hume could make his Fleetwood debut this weekend when the promotion-chasing League Two side travel to Exeter.

The Canadian international striker signed a loan deal at Highbury from Preston for the rest of the season on Thursday and could reprise his strike-partnership with former team-mate Jon Parkin.

Hume's arrival has also means boss Graham Alexander is unlikely to rush back David Ball (ankle) or Blackpool loanee Bobby Grant (knee).

Midfielder Jeff Hughes will not play again this season after breaking his leg back in January.
