Football - Butterfield back for Grecians

Exeter are set to be boosted by the return of experienced right-back Danny Butterfield when they welcome Southend.

PA Sport Report

The former Crystal Palace defender has not featured since picking up a calf strain injury in the Devon derby victory over Plymouth last month but is back in contention.

"Danny Butterfield is fit for selection," manager Paul Tisdale said. "He has not had any match play but he has trained and he is through his injury. We are getting back to full strength."

Another boost for Tisdale is the return of playmaker Alan Gow who missed Saturday's 2-0 loss at Peterborough through injury and he is likely to take Tommy Doherty's place in the side. The former Northern Ireland international midfielder is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
