City v Notts County

All you need to know about this visit of Notts County on Tuesday evening

26 September 2017

Exeter City host Notts County at St James Park on Tuesday evening looking to get back on top of the League Two table with a win over Kevin Nolan's side.

The Magpies took over at the summit on Saturday after they beat Lincoln City 4-1, while City slipped to second having lost 2-0 away at Coventry City. 

However, the Grecians currently have a 100 per cent League Two record at St James Park this season having record 1-0 victories over Cambridge United, Lincoln City and Newport County along with a 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra last time out.

Right-back Pierce Sweeney says their home start to the season is something the players are very proud of.

“It’s our home ground and we want it to be a fortress,” he said. “So far, we’ve played four and won four, keeping four clean sheets. That was our problem last year and it is our strength this year."

Watch Pierce Sweeney's full interview below:

Exeter City 0 Notts County 3

Grecians beaten at home by travelling County

26 September 2017

Sponsored by

Exeter City slipped to a 3-0 defeat at home to Notts County at St James Park in Sky Bet League Two.

An early Lewis Alessandra strike and two goals from substitute Jorge Grant sealed the win for the away side against a City team who had created a number of chances but failed to be clinical.

Match report sponsored by Speedy Freight

The Grecians made two changes to the side that were beaten 2-0 away from home at Coventry City last weekend as Troy Archibald-Henville replaced the injured Jordan Moore-Taylor, and Jayden Stockley made his first league start in place of Liam McAlinden.

But it was a nightmare start for City when two minutes in a long ball forward was missed by Troy Brown and Jon Stead and fell to Alessandra who lobbed the ball over Christy Pym from distance to put County into the lead.

In a lively start the Grecians then felt they should have been given a penalty after Jake Taylor went down in the area under pressure from Nicky Hunt, but referee Kevin Johnson waved away the City claims.

Taylor, playing from the left-hand side, was involved again for City’s next chance when Reuben Reid did well to hold up play and feed his teammate, but the midfielder’s curling effort from just outside the box was straight at Adam Colin.

The visitors, keen to use their target man Stead, then had another attempt at the City goal through Terry Hawkridge.

After finding space from the County number 30’s flick on, he cut inside and shot, but his attempt was well over Pym’s goal.

Lee Holmes was next to have an attempt at goal in a real end-to-end first 20 minutes with possession turning over frequently in midfield.

This time, a good ball forward by Pierce Sweeney saw Holmes control well and turn to shoot at goal, but once again Colin collected comfortably as the Grecians searched for a response.

County then had Colin to thank on 25 minutes when the Grecians fashioned their best chance of the opening period.

Excellent trickery from Holmes saw him lay it back to Craig Woodman who crossed well towards Stockley, and the City number 11’s flick teed up Taylor to blast at goal, but the County goalkeeper was equal to it, saving low.

As the half wore on the Grecians continued to threaten as Holmes saw another effort nestle the wrong side of the post.

After a wonderful knock down from Stockley into the path of Taylor, the ball found its way to Holmes, but the City winger’s effort with the outside of his left foot failed to test Colin which meant the home side would go into the break trailing narrowly.

City began the second half in similar vein to how they end the first period as they pressed for an equaliser.

Once again, Taylor was at the centre of things in another penalty appeal for the Grecians as he went to shoot from a corner which had rebounded to him but was obstructed as he fell to ground, but once again, the referee waved away the City appeals.

It was County’s turn to appeal for a spot kick just moments later when Richard Duffy was challenged by Woodman in the box as both players attacked a cross, but the referee again refrained from awarding any sort of foul.

Despite City’s efforts, they found themselves two behind on the hour mark after substitute Jorge Grant slotted in from close range.

A Liam Walker corner into a crowd of bodies bounced off Brown leaving Grant to step in front and slot past Pym to put Kevin Nolan’s side further in front.

Paul Tisdale then looked to his bench for a way back into the match, and it almost came in the perfect manner.

As Kyle Edwards and Hiram Boateng replaced Archibald-Henville and Jordan Tillson, the former cut inside just moments after being on the pitch and darted past two players, shooting across goal, but wide.

The Grecians continued to battle their way back into the match, but credit to Notts County, who defended resolutely, particularly from crosses.

Chances continued to come for Tisdale’s men through Holmes, and Stockley with ten minutes to go, but he was unable to keep his close range header below Colin’s goal.

But it wasn’t City’s night as the away side sealed the victory ten minutes from time with a well worked goal. A sublime cross from Jonathan Forte and a well timed run from Grant saw the substitute claim his second of the match as he beat the offside trap to volley home.
