Matt Grimes: Pushing for a start

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Exeter City and Accrington Stanley and St James' Park.

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale has no fresh injury worries for the visit of Accrington.

The Grecians recorded back-to-back victories over Fleetwood and then arch rivals Plymouth to move seven points clear of the relegation zone and Tisdale could name an unchanged line-up for the third successive match.

He could be tempted to hand Matt Grimes a start after the midfielder's eye-catching performance off the bench at Home Park but may stick with the central midfield trio of Scott Bennett, Matt Gill and Matt Oakley.

Other options for the City boss include Pat Baldwin, John O'Flynn, Jimmy Keohane and David Wheeler.

Laurence Wilson and Marcus Carver are no nearer returns as Accrington travel to Exeter.

Full-back Wilson's groin problem is taking longer to heal than first thought and he is set to miss a third successive game this weekend.

Meanwhile Carver, who had to be recalled from a loan spell in non-league football because he required shin surgery, has suffered a fresh setback. The young striker was due to return soon but damaged his medial cruciate ligament in training and looks set for another frustratingly prolonged period on the sidelines.

Boss James Beattie has no other injury or suspension worries and is unlikely to tinker too much with a team who have lost just one of their past six games.
