City, beaten 2-0 at Bristol Rovers on Wednesday night, now face the 560-mile round trip to Fleetwood and Tisdale revealed he will be unable to work on putting things right at the training ground.
"It is not easy," he said. "We won't spend any time at the Cat & Fiddle between now and Saturday afternoon.
"It means we have to talk the game and recover for a long trip. We are used to those trips of course, so there can be no excuses given there.
"It is my first time there, (at Highbury) I believe they are a very good footballing side on their own patch and we'll have to be ready for that."
And Exeter's long-serving manager has plenty of options if he decides to ring the changes.
Jimmy Keohane replaced Tommy Doherty (back) at the Memorial Stadium at half-time and the Irishman could get the nod.
Keohane was joined for the second half by Jake Gosling and the young winger is also pushing for a start.
Fellow midfielder Mark Molesley serves the final game of his three-match ban for a red card at Port Vale.
