City ready for JPT showdown
The JPT southern area final is fascinatingly poised going into the second leg with Exeter and Bretford locked at 1-1.
The Grecians hope to welcome back Jamie Cureton who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.
Ben Hamer is expected to return in goal despite carrying a groin strain.
Captain Matt Taylor, Liam Sercombe, David Noble, John O`Flynn and James Dunne were all rested for the defeat against Huddersfield on Saturday and are pushing for recalls.
Brentford will be without cup-tied midfielder Owain Tudor Jones.
Caretaker boss Nicky Forster is not expected to pick himself so Gary Alexander and Charlie McDonald could lead the line.
Awaiting the winner of this tie at Wembley will be either Carlisle or Huddersfield. The Cumbrians hold a more than useful 4-0 lead after the first leg though.
Speaking to exetercityfc.co.uk Exeter boss Paul Tisdale said:
'I hope the supporters come out in their numbers. I know three games in six days is a lot for people to spend but if they can then we want them here because it does make a difference. The more the merrier.
'Monday is, in its own right, a very important game. But we can heap pressure on ourselves but we have earned this opportunity by winning five fixtures all away from home so far which on merit is a big achievement.
'We should enjoy every minute of it and not fear it as an important game. We all know the rewards at the end of it but this game is a bonus, an extra bit of excitement which we have earned.'
