Preview: Exeter City

28 February 2017

A look ahead to tonight's game against the Grecians

The Reds take on Exeter City tonight at the Checkatrade Stadium looking to follow up last Saturday’s win over Wycombe Wanderers (7-45pm).

 


Dermot Drummy’s men face the Grecians in the first of three home games in a week. Paul Tisdale’s side sit sixth n the table after their 2-2 draw at home to Blackpool at the weekend. They have won ten away games already in the League this season.

The Opposition

 

Exeter's lofty league position owes much to a stunning run of form which saw the Grecians go 12 matches unbeaten in Sky Bet EFL Two from the end of November until the start of February.

 


Tisdale’s men picked up wins on the road against Leyton Orient, Cheltenham Town, Newport County, Grimsby Town and Portsmouth during that spell.

 

During their 4-0 home win over Crewe Alexandra in that run Sussex-born midfielder David Wheeler scored for the seventh consecutive match – breaking an 80 year-old club record in the process.

 

 Previous Meetings

 

The last time we faced the Grecians was back in August when a late goal from Josh Yorwerth sealed a 1-0 victory and gave us our first victory on the road of the season.

 

The fixture at the Checkatrade Stadium last season ended in a 2-0 win for the Grecians as goals from former Crawley loanee Jake Taylor and Ollie Watkins gave Exeter a comfortable three points on Easter Monday.

 

Luke Rooney’s dramatic last gasp long-range equalised rescued a point for Mark Yates’ men at St James’ Park last year as the two sides played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.
