Alan Gow has given the Exeter management a boost by declaring himself fully fit for the FA Cup first-round trip to Bury.
Injury has restricted the former Blackpool and Notts County attacker to cameo appearances in recent weeks and the Grecians have struggled in that time, taking just nine points from a possible 33.
"I'm glad to be back playing," Gow told the Western Morning News. "It has been an annoying time because I have had a bad injury after being kicked against Bristol Rovers.
"Luckily enough, the manager has given me time to rest it, he has been careful with me, and I'll get back to full fitness without any problems occurring again.
"Hopefully, I will be able to start at the weekend."
The 30-year-old signed a two-year deal with the club in May after shining during a short stay at the end of last season.
