Vital Quotes:

Exeter City Team News:

Paul Tisdale will be forced into a couple of changes for this weekends visit of Carlisle. Jamie Cureton has tweaked a hamstring and won`t be fit but should be back in contention for the trip to the MK Dons Saturday week.

Troy Archibald-Henville will also be absent, he has a one game suspension following his sending off in last weeks defeat at Walsall. The evergreen Rob Edwards is expected to take his place at the heart of the defence against one of his former clubs.

Tisdale told exetercityfc.co.uk ...

Rob never lets me down, I don't think any player has,' Tisdale said.

'He is a very able person to come in and play and of course he started his career at Carlisle so he is playing against his original team.

'I am sure he will do a very good job.'

Daniel Nardiello is fit for selection having shaken off a knock he picked up last weekend and he will battle it out with John O`Flynn and Richard Logan for the two striker slots.

City`s only other absentee is club captain Matt Taylor whose back injury means he is still a few weeks away from a return to fitness.
