City braced for Cup clash

City braced for Cup clash

Exeter City turn there attention to the FA Cup this weekend. They go into their tie with Bury with a couple of key players missing.

Ryan Harley is still suffering from a sickness bug, whilst John O`flynn hasn`t recovered from a groin strain he picked up against Brentford last weekend. Captain Matt Taylor may play some part in his bid to regain match fitness following a long lay-off.

Most of Tuesday nights sickness bug victims are expected to make full recovery`s return to the match day squad.

Artur Krysiak will be hoping he has done enough to keep his place in goal, Krysiak made his league debut for the Grecian`s in mid week, replacing regular stopper Paul Jones.

Paul Tisdale told exetercityfc.co.uk...

Ryan Harley is still off ill. So now it is less than 48 hours till kick-off and he hasn't trained for the best part of ten or eleven days now. So that's not good news.

But the others who were ill earlier in the week - Richard Logan, Richard Duffy, Jamie Cureton, Matt Taylor and one or two others have also now better and they should all be available for Saturday.'

Bury will be without striker Andy Bishop, he has been out for 8 games suffering from tendonitis. Goal Keeper Cameron Belford is also set to be sidelined.

Otherwise boss Alan Knill has a fully fit squad to chose from as Bury look to continue their excellent form this season.

Last time these sides met at Gigg Lane was two seasons ago in a league two fixture where Richard Logan scored the only goal of the game as the Grecian`s ran out 1-0 winners.
