Bauza has scored just three goals since joining Exeter from Northampton

Exeter City have been buoyed by the news that striker Guillem Bauza is fit after a hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old Spaniard has been dogged by injuries since joining City in the summer from Northampton.

He has only played 12 games for Exeter after being injured against Liverpool in August and .

"I'm fit and ready to go if the manager needs me and I'm just happy to be able to help the team again," he told BBC Radio Devon.

"It's been a bad first part of the season but as a person you need to try to be happy and think that everything is going to be better.

"I'm a footballer, I'm a professional and injuries is a thing that happens to footballers. You just need to focus on rehabilitating your injury and getting your fitness levels back," he said.

Bauza impressed assistant manager Rob Edwards during a reserve team fixture which also saw a return to action for fellow striker Daniel Nardiello.

"He played half a game against Bristol City on Wednesday and I was really impressed at how quickly he got back into his stride," Edwards said.

"I think people could see in flashes how good a player he is and in the final third he's got an art of getting the ball in his feet and turning and finding space - that's very valuable to any team."
