Manager Paul Tisdale admits he is spoilt for choice as he prepares to pick an Exeter side to face Leyton Orient this weekend.

The Grecians welcome back senior players Daniel Nardiello, Liam Sercombe, John O'Flynn, James Dunne and David Noble for the trip to Orient after the quintet returned to training after injury.

However, during their absence those drafted into the starting XI excelled - seeing off Tranmere 3-0 in League One 10 days ago - and Tisdale conceded he has a tough task on his hand when it comes to choosing his team on Saturday.

"The biggest problem I'm going to have is picking a side," he told the Western Morning News. "With only five players allowed on the bench, for the first time this season I'm going to have to leave some senior first-team players out of the squad.

"Last weekend (against Tranmere) was probably one of the most satisfying performances in the last five-and-a-half years. The likes of Scot Bennett, Elliott Frear and Richard Logan have given me a real problem for this week's game, because they have all put down a marker.

"For the first time in a while, I've got a good, healthy squad in place for this game. I've got a bench that I can actually look at and think I've got options there to really improve things, which has been a rarity this year."
