Exeter have only one fit goalkeeper for their League Two clash with Scunthorpe on Saturday.
Jonny Maxted dislocated his kneecap in training on Monday and is set for a lengthy absence, leaving under-16s goalkeeper Harry Lee to take a place on the bench as Lewis Ward deputises.
Rory McArdle is awaiting the results of a scan after sustaining a knee injury, with Nigel Atangana not set to return for several weeks with an Achilles issue.
Ryan Bowman is fit to play, however, having returned after a stomach strain to score during the Grecians’ 2-1 defeat of Crawley last weekend.
Midfielder Myles Hippolyte is available for Scunthorpe after serving the one-match ban he was handed for his dismissal against Cambridge.
George Hornshaw returned from a hamstring issue as the Iron were defeated by Cheltenham at the weekend and should feature.
Emmanuel Onariase also returned after an absence caused by a hernia, with Jai Rowe taking a spot on the bench following his knee injury.
Olufela Olomola (hamstring) is reportedly closing in on a return, but Harrison McGahey (hamstring) remains out and Kevin Van Veen is sidelined for some time after a knee operation.
