Coles boost for Grecians
Exeter skipper Danny Coles is expected to make a welcome return for the trip to Oxford.
The defender missed Tuesday's disappointing Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Aldershot with a slight groin complaint suffered during last weekend's 3-0 victory over Burton.
But he has recovered sufficiently to be in the frame for the clash at the Kassam Stadium, where the Grecians triumphed in a dramatic Conference play-off semi-final in 2007.
Coles' return provides manager Paul Tisdale with a fully-fit squad for an encounter between two sides who have taken an impressive nine points from their opening four league matches respectively.
As well as Coles, Kevin Amankwaah, Matt Oakley, Arron Davies and Jamie Cureton will all be hoping to return having not featured in the JPT in midweek.
