Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale say he will not bring in any more players on loan this season.

The deadline for Football League clubs to complete emergency loan deals is 24 March.

"Although it's only been a week or two it looks like we're beginning to find some kind of form, so I'm not looking to bring anybody in," said Tisdale.

"My mind is set on the next 11 games and it's set on how that leads into next year," he told BBC Sport.

Alex Nicholls is Exeter's only injury worry, with the forward having surgery on a fractured eye socket on Thursday.

"I've got a good number of players and good competition with the majority of the squad being fit at the moment," added Tisdale.

"With the likes of Ollie Watkins emerging through you don't want to block that opportunity and challenge for a young player."

On Nicholls' injury, Tisdale commented: "He's out for two to four weeks.

"He's played week in, week out. He's one of the few players that unless something like this has happened he's going to be available.

"He's a very physically athletic and tough player and he's been one of the standout players for us this year, his game's improved as the year's gone on."
