“Joe is an experienced player we could do with at the moment and the sooner he’s back the better.
“Ian Morris and Alan Connell both did really well when they came on at Exeter and like with every game we will look at the opposition and try and pick the right team to exploit any situations that might occur.
“Our quality of play certainly improved in the second half on Tuesday and we always look at the best team to start a game and the best team to finish a game.”
