Exeter City's Paul Tisdale is the second-longest serving manager in England

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale admits Saturday's Devon derby against Plymouth Argyle is "not just another game".

The Grecians, who will have forward Alex Nicholls back in the squad, are five points outside the League Two play-offs after a six-match unbeaten run in March.

Meanwhile, Argyle are third after back-to-back wins over York and Morecambe.

"There's an element of anxiety and excitement about it," Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"I have been involved in probably a dozen Devon derbies. It's a different type of game and it has a life of its own at times.

"We are looking forward to it, we are highly prepared for it."

Tisdale awaits fitness reports on Jordan Moore-Taylor and Matt Oakley before finalising his team.
