Preview: Exeter City

15 August 2016

A look ahead to Tuesday night's game at St James' Park

The Reds travel to St James' Park on Tuesday evening to face Paul Tisdale’s Exeter City in their third league game of the season.


Unbeaten in the league so far, Dermot Drummy’s men have made an impressive start to the campaign with a new-look side.


The opening day victory over Wycombe Wanderers was followed by a hard-fought point at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday when James Collins got his first goal for the club to earn the Reds their first away point of the campaign.

An opening day trip to Blackpool ended in a 2-0 defeat as a goal from Kyle Vassell and an own goal from Troy Brown meant that Gary Bowyer’s men got the three points.

That was followed by an 1-0 EFL Cup victory at home to Brentford when a Ryan Harley strike in extra-time put Tisdale’s men through to the next round.


Saturday’s game at home to Hartlepool United saw goals from Michael Woods and Billy Paynter hand the visitors their first victory of the season in a 2-1 win after ex-Reds loanee Liam McAlinden had put Exeter in front.

Grecians striker Robbie Simpson says that his side must bounce back quickly from the weekend's defeat. More here



We’ve Met Before:


The last time the two sides met was in March 2016 when Paul Tisdale’s men ran out 2-0 winners in RH11. A first half goal from Jake Taylor and a second half strike from Ollie Watkins gave the visitors the three points.


Our trip to Devon last November ended in a 2-2 draw. Sonny Bradley's header and a late strike from Luke Rooney meant the teams shared the spoils.
