Football - Cureton poised for milestone

Exeter's top scorer Jamie Cureton looks set to make his 700th appearance in English football in the televised Devon derby on Monday night.

The 37-year-old has served his three-match suspension and is expected to replace the injured John O'Flynn against Torquay as the Grecians look to continue their unbeaten start to 2013.

Alan Gow's late penalty at Plainmoor means City have taken 10 points from a possible 12 since the turn of the year and they now prepare to face the Gulls for the second successive match.

Since that 1-1 draw Paul Tisdale has added midfielder Mark Molesley to his squad following his release from Bournemouth and the former Plymouth loanee could go straight into the starting line-up at St James Park.

Molesley has been signed as a replacement for Liam Sercombe who looks set to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

O'Flynn is Exeter's only other absentee and the Irishman looks set to be sidelined for at least a month with a torn hamstring.
