Sutton United look to continue their good form as they visit Exeter City on Saturday afternoon at St. James' Park.

The Yellow Army have recorded successive victories against Stevenage and Hartlepool United, their first two as members of EFL League Two after going winless in their opening four games and now find themselves in 16th place.

With a 4-0 victory over Scunthorpe United, the Grecians extended their unbeaten run to five games following a defeat to Leyton Orient and they sit in ninth in the league table.

Team news

Jack Sparkes continues to be absent and as a result, Exeter have signed Colin Daniel as cover at the left wing-back position. Archie Collins and Josh Coley are also still sidelined, but they are getting closer to training with the team.

Donovan Wilson is available for Sutton as is Omar Bugiel after being rested following international duty with Lebanon. Jonathan Barden remains out injured, meaning Joe Kizzi will get the start at right-back. Kenny Davis and Ricky Korboa are doubtful.

Predicted lineups

Exeter City: Dawson; Sweeney, Ray, Hartridge; Key, Kite, Dieng, Caprice; Jay, Brown; Nombe

Sutton United: Bouzanis; Milsom, John, Goodliffe, Kizzi; Boldewijn, Smith, Eastmond, Ajiboye; Sho-Silva, Bennett
