Exeter City vs Port Vale

EXETER CITY vs PORT VALE
EMIRATES FA CUP SECOND ROUND
ST JAMES PARK
SUNDAY 6TH DECEMBER 2015
KICK-OFF: 2:00PM

THE FA CUP makes a long-awaited return to St James Park this weekend as Port Vale are the visitors.

A win could prove to be highly-valuable for the Grecians, as the Third Round sees the country's heavy-hitters from the top two divisions enter.

Former Grecian Richard Duffy is likely to be involved for the visitors, though City are likely to have a new-look midfield due to injury set-backs.


Tickets

You can pay on the gate to see City take on the Vale at St James Park. Reduced ticket prices apply - hope to see you all there!

Quotes

"It was only a matter of time before we drew a home tie, and it was only a matter of time before we won a couple of ties. You can't draw a big side in the Third Round unless you progress through the second, so it's about winning this game before thinking about what happens next. We all know what could happen, but really it's a non-topic until you win the games to get there." - Paul Tisdale
