Football - Grimes blow for Grecians

Exeter look set to be without Matt Grimes when they host Oxford looking for their first home victory since October.

PA Sport Report

There were fears that the 18-year-old midfielder, one of City's best performers in recent weeks, had suffered a serious leg injury following a challenge from AFC Wimbledon's Sammy Moore in Saturday's 2-1 loss.

City's fears were eased when X-rays on Sunday revealed Grimes had not suffered a break or fracture. But the soft tissue damage he sustained looks set to keep him out for the visit of the managerless U's.

Fellow homegrown midfielder Liam Sercombe picked up a slight injury in the build up to Saturday's trip and hopes to be fit as City look to end a run of six St James Park matches without a win.
