Fit-again centre-forward Danny Wright marked his first game for three months with a goal as Torquay United met Exeter City in a 'reserve' friendly on Monday. 

Former Grecians defender Gary Warren also played the first 45 minutes at City's Cat & Fiddle Training Ground. 

Both senior players have been out for some time, Wright since tearing his hamstring against Yeovil Town (6-1) on Boxing Day. 

Manager Gary Johnson said: "It was a chance for both Danny and Gary to get their first 45 minutes in. 

"It was very beneficial for them and for us, and Danny produced a nice finish for his goal, but they still have more work to do to be first-team match-fit. 

"The result was unimportant, because Exeter had a young side and we played a mixture of older lads who haven't played for a while or have been on our bench, and younger lads from our youth team."  

New striker loan signing Benji Kimpioka from Sunderland was not involved - he took part in a normal training session ahead of Good Friday's National League home game against Woking (3pm).
