Artur Krysiak: Late fitness check

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

Exeter will assess goalkeeper Artur Krysiak's injury before they welcome Rochdale to Devon.

The 24-year-old has missed his side's last two matches but manager Paul Tisdale says he will check on the former Birmingham shot-stopper, with 18-year-old Christy Pym standing by to make his third successive start for the Grecians.

Tisdale will also assess the fitness of defender Pat Baldwin who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Matt Gill looks set to be involved again having returned to action as a substitute in Tuesday's controversial 1-1 draw with Morecambe.

That point made it five unbeaten for Tisdale's men who now face another two successive home games starting with the clash against Dale.

Rochdale manager Keith Hill could select his starting line-up from an unchanged squad for the game at Exeter.

Hill has no new injury or suspension worries following the midweek home draw against promotion rivals Burton as his side bid to extend their unbeaten league run to four matches.

Latest signing Craig Lynch, the former Sunderland striker, is not expected to feature at this stage, but centre-half Ollie Lancashire and midfielder Peter Cavanagh (both hamstring), who were unused substitutes on Tuesday night, are hoping to feature.

Former Burnley forward George Porter is still waiting for his first appearance after sitting on the bench for the last four games.
