Exeter City centre-back Troy Archibald-Henville faces more time out after suffering a knee injury.

The 28-year-old, who returned to City in June, has managed just eight minutes of action this season after injuring his groin in August.

The former Carlisle and Swindon Town defender was hurt in a reserve game.

"It's a really disappointing situation, and it was all off the back of a really bad tackle, so Troy's going to be a while," manager Paul Tisdale said.

Archibald-Henville's only action so far has been as a late substitute in the FA Cup loss to Luton Town earlier this month.

The former Tottenham youngster made 130 appearances for City between 2009 and 2012.
