📝 Big Match Preview: Fulham v City

Everything you need to know ahead of the trip to London

28 August 2018

Exeter City make the trip to Premier League side Fulham in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

After navigating their way past Championship side Ipswich Town via a penalty shootout, the Grecians have been drawn away from home at Craven Cottage in what looks set to be an exciting encounter.

Ahead of the match in the capital, manager Matt Taylor said: “It’s another good stadium with a good pitch. The pressure might be off in terms of going to a Premier League team away from home and nobody expecting too much from us, but we want to attack every game.

“Tuesday is a different sort of test. We’re going to have to be excellent out of possession because they will keep the ball and move us around, but I still want us to attack, I still want us to have a threat on the opposition’s goal.

When we last met:

It’s been a long time since the Grecians last came up against Fulham as they played out a 1-1 draw on Boxing Day in 1996 at Craven Cottage.

Travelling by car:

The journey is approximately 192 miles, depending which way you go. The quickest route should take you up the M5 from Exeter, before taking the M4 east towards London. Continue on the motorway to the capital before taking the Great West road towards Hammersmith. Follow signs for the A219 and follow Fulham Palace road, then turn right onto Harbord street and then Woodlawn road. Craven Cottage is just off that road along Greswell street.

Parking around Craven Cottage is extremely limited and access to the surrounding streets on a match day is restricted by a Traffic Management Order.

There is a one-hour maximum stay policy for non-residential pay and display visitors between 9am and 9.30pm on all Monday to Sunday match days, including Bank Holidays.

An accessible shuttle bus service takes supporters between the car park and stadium, both before and after the match. This trip takes no more than 5 minutes, although there may be a short wait at full-time.

No official club car parking spaces can be arranged on the day of a game.

The names of all disabled supporters who have been allocated a space for each game are given in advance to the Car Park Steward, who is located at the main entrance on Kingwood Road.

The full address of the car park location is:

Fulham College Boys' School
Kingwood Road
London
SW6 6SN

By Train:

The closest station to Craven Cottage, Putney Bridge is approximately a 10 – 20 min walk from the stadium.

Exit the station, turn left and follow the road (Ranelagh Gardens). Walk through the underpass into Bishops Park. Follow the path through Bishops Park, along the river until you reach the stadium.

There are plenty of trains between Exeter and London on the day which may require you to change at different stations. Coming back, however, train times are very limited, and we encourage supporters to plan well in advance as possible to make sure you encounter as little difficulty as possible.

Pubs/Food:

Near to the tube station is the 'Eight Bells' which is popular with away fans. The Temperance is across the road (Fulham High Street) on the corner. They have a round bar in the centre of their main room, there is ample seating and the football was being screened on a large projector with other TV’s placed around the room. If arriving at Putney over ground railway station then there is a Wetherspoons virtually opposite the station entrance called the Railway.

City face West Ham under-21s on Saturday, September 25 in a 7:45pm kick-off. Click here to purchase tickets online!

Grecians drop out of Carabao Cup after defeat in London

28 August 2018

Sponsored by

Exeter City fell to a 2-0 defeat in the Carabao Cup against Premier League side Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Two goals from Aboubakar Kamara did the damage for the home side who controlled the game throughout.

The Grecians did create a few chances, but were unable to force enough clear-cut opportunties to hurt their opponents as they departed the competition.

Match Report sponsored by Speedy Freight

The Grecians made a host of changes to the side that started the match against MK Dons last weekend as Tristan Abrahams and Archie Collins made their full debuts, with Dara O’Shea and Jimmy Oates getting their first taste of competitive football for the club.

There were also starting places for Jordan Tillson, Lee Martin, Matt Jay and Luke Croll, who came on as a second half substitute last time out.

City’s Premier League opponents made a number of changes from their weekend win over Burnley but fielded some notable names in the form of Ryan Sessegnon, Calum Chambers and Alfie Mawson.

It was a nightmare start for Matt Taylor’s side as they fell behind within just four minutes. Cyrus Christie tried his luck from distance, and Pym could only punch the ball away as he made the save, but Kamara volleyed in expertly to make it 1-0.

But credit to City as they began to find their feet, and almost levelled on 15 minutes when they sprung on the counter-attack. After Collins battled well in midfield, he set Jay away, and the striker struck from the edge of the box but could only find Sergio Rico’s right-hand post.

An end-to-end first 20 minutes then saw Fulham break on the counter-attack from a City corner, and Kamara almost added a second from the edge of the box when he tried to curl the ball inside Pym’s left-hand post, but the keeper made a good save to keep the score at 1-0.

The Grecians began to see much more of the ball, though, with Lee Martin involved a great deal down the City left. Taylor’s side were often unable to force any clear-cut chances at goal, as Neeskens Kabano gave a reminder of the Fulham threat on the counter as he forced a low save from Pym.

The Fulham fans were then calling for VAR, when Kamara broke down the left before being challenged by Aaron Martin in the City box, but referee Kevin Friend waved away the appeals as the Grecians went in at the break trailing narrowly.

The home side started the second period with a chance inside the first minute when Christie got down the right before crossing into the path of Stefan Johansen, who shot just wide of Pym’s near post.

And the Grecians fell further behind when Kamara found his second when Johansen played a well weighted pass through the City defence for the striker to latch onto and slot past Pym as Slavisa Jokanovic’s side doubled their lead.

Half-time substitute Hiram Boateng created City’s first attempt of the second period when he picked up the ball in midfield before darting inside and curling an effort just over Rico’s goal.

Another introduction, Jack Sparkes, then made a good impression when he cut inside from the right to find Jay, but Chambers did just about enough to get a deflection on the striker’s attempt at goal.

On 65 minutes, and despite the City fans being in full voice in the away end, the home side created a good chance as they forced Pym into a smart save from close range as Fonte slid to try and poke the ball past him from a low cross.

The Grecians did have the ball in the net through Jay when he latched onto a ball over the top, but for the offside flag as City looked for a way back into the tie.

But Pym was at his best again just four minutes from time when he managed to get a hand to Johansen's goal-bound free-kick, as the City keeper pushed the ball onto the post before his defenders cleared, as the Grecians bowed out of the competition.

Fulham: Rico, Sessegnon, Chambers, Kebano (De La Torre, 74), Johansen, Fonte, Christie, Mawson (S. Sessegnon 75), Zambo Anguissa, Cisse, Kamara
