Exeter City striker Robbie Simpson is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a suspected broken ankle in their 2-2 draw with Blackpool.

The former Cambridge, Coventry and Oldham forward, 31, had scored once in 29 appearances for the League Two side.

"We're pretty sure he's broken his ankle - he'll be needing an operation," boss Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"There was a big part for him to play at the end of this season, but it looks like we'll have to wait for next year."
