Team News: Exeter City v Pools

9 October 2014

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Exeter City at St James’ Park (3pm kick-off).

Sam Collins and Stephen Pears must decide whether to make any changes to their starting line-up after an encouraging display was given by a young side against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Kieran Green and Dan Jones were handed their full debuts for the Club, while Lewis Hawkins and Michael Woods were both in the team on Tuesday and will hope to keep their places for the weekend.

Jack Compton will definitely not be part of the plans as the winger will undergo a knee operation on Thursday which will rule him out of action for three months, while Stuart Parnaby is also still nursing a knee problem.

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale has several injuries to contend with ahead of the weekend, admitting he's never known anything like it.

Jordan Moore-Taylor became the latest casualty when he was injured during Tuesday's game at Coventry City, believed to be a recurrence of a broken metatarsal.

Liam Sercombe and David Wheeler have both suffered setbacks in their recoveries and are now likely to remain sidelined for a further three to four weeks.

That takes the total number of Grecians players in the treatment room to eight, with Pat Baldwin, Jamie Reid, David Noble, Craig Woodman and Graham Cummins all also injured.

Tisdale handed full debuts to youngsters James Hamon, Connor Riley-Lowe and Jason Pope at The Ricoh Arena and the trio could be involved again against Pools.
