Team news: Exeter City v Morecambe

Holmes and McCready make first City starts

Grecians manager Paul Tisdale hands Lee Holmes and Tom McCready their first starts in Exeter City colours for the home fixture against Morecambe.

Midfielder McCready takes his berth in the centre of the park against his old club in the absence of Liam Sercombe, who is missing completely after sustaining an injury at Cheltenham last weekend.

Clinton Morrison also returns to the starting line-up, meaning that David Wheeler and Graham Cummins take a seat on the bench.  Alex Nicholls returns to contention after missing out at Whaddon Road with a knock and is available as a substitute.

James Hamon has recovered from his facial injury last weekend and is immediately drafted in for a start between the sticks – an injury to Christy Pym means the reserve goalkeeper position on the bench is filled by 16-year-old Kavanagh Keadell.

Exeter City: Hamon; Davies, Ribeiro, Moore-Taylor, McAllister; Oakley, McCready, Harley; Holmes, Morrison, Nichols.
Subs: Keadell, Butterfield, Woodman, Bennett, Wheeler, Nicholls, Cummins.

Morecambe: Arestidou; Edwards, Hughes, Parrish; McGowan, Fleming, Kenyon, Wildig, Wilson; Devitt, Redshaw.
Subs: Stewart, Ellison, Wright, Goodall, Amond, Mullin.
