📝 Big Match Preview: City v Morecambe

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match at St James Park

11 January 2019

Exeter City play their first home match of 2019 when they welcome Morecambe to St James Park in a 3pm kick-off this Saturday.

The Grecians will be buoyed by an impressive performance against Swindon Town on new year’s day as they took all three points. After a short break last weekend due to FA Cup action, they will be looking to keep up the form and continue their positive momentum.

Ahead of the match against the Lancashire side, manager Matt Taylor said: “They’re a really tough team. They’re well managed by a good and experienced manager at this level and they always cause problems and create chances against us which is something that we’ve got to be mindful of.

“We’re on a relatively good run of form ourselves and if we play to the best of our ability then we’ll create opportunities and hopefully it will be a good game of League Two football."

 

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met back in August 2018 in what was match day two of the 2018/19 season. Despite a long journey to contend with, the Grecians ran out 2-0 winners on the day with a positive performance at the Globe Arena.

Pierce Sweeney found the net for City from the penalty spot just two minutes before half-time before Jayden Stockley made sure the points were safe for City with his goal in the 66th minute.

TICKET NEWS

Saturday's match is the first match to fall under the 2019 ticket pricing which sees a small increase which means matches at St James Park will still remain accessible to as many supporters as possible, without compromising the vital revenue stream which comes from ticket sales.

Prices have increased by £1 for Adults, Seniors, and Students, with under-18 prices increasing by £1.50. These increases help to offset the increased club operating costs and marks the first increase in two years.

Tickets are on sale at advance prices until 5pm in person and midnight online, on Friday, January 11 so, why not save money and time queuing by buying in advance!

You can book online via Mobile, tablet or desktop by visiting: tickets.ecfc.co.uk or by calling: 01392 411 243 or by visiting the club shop/reception at St James Park.

Grecians play out draw at St James Park

12 January 2019

Sponsored by

Exeter City were unable to make their offensive pressure pay dividends as the Grecians were forced to settle for a goalless draw against Morecambe at St James Park.

The Grecians dominated much of the ball and the chances, but credit to the Morecambe defence, who shut down the City attacks to prevent them making it two wins from two.

City boss Matt Taylor made one change to the starting 11, with Lee Holmes returning from injury in place of Chiedozie Ogbene.

It was an evenly-matched opening period, with the home side producing some attacking football that was very easy on the eye. The Grecians came closest to opening the scoring in the first quarter of an hour as Nicky Law and Lee Martin combined just inside the penalty area, but Martin’s through ball was cut out at the last moment.

It was Law again who had a massive chance to open the scoring eight minutes later; good work from Lee Martin down the Morecambe left presented Pierce Sweeney with a chance to cross, and his delivery was met by Law – but the header landed agonisingly wide of the visitors’ goal. The home side would then go close just after the half-hour mark as Craig Woodman’s cross was met by a mishit clearance that nearly rolled past a helpless Mark Halstead in the Morecambe goal.

City were dominating the game in terms of chances created and came close again five minutes later – a tidy spell of possession eventually found Sweeney in enough space to fire in a rasping shot that took a small deflection and hit the Morecambe crossbar. From the resulting corner, Exeter fashioned another chance for the Irishman, but his header flew over.

The visitors’ Rhys Oates took a shot from the edge of the box that was one of few half-chances that Morecambe were able to fashion in the opening 45, but it was an effort that Christy Pym was able to save comfortably. An audacious long-range switch of play from Archie Collins then found Martin at the other end, but his shot was blocked and was the last action of note before half-time.

The second half began in a similar vein to the first; there was very little to differentiate the two sides. It took until the 63rd minute for there to be anything resembling a decent chance, and it fell to the visitors – Oates’ effort on the half-volley from close range flew over Pym’s crossbar.

Ryan Bowman made his City debut, replacing Holmes in the 69th minute, after the completion of his transfer from Motherwell. But it would be the visitors who had the stronger final third of the game; Andrew Tutte’s free-kick forced Pym into a diving save minutes after Jordan Cranston’s effort from range forced the City goalkeeper into a smart stop.

City came close through Dean Moxey in the last 10 minutes – good work from Nicky Law and Craig Woodman to recycle possession resulted in a cross that Moxey headed narrowly wide. It would prove to be the best chance City had of winning the game; as it was they were forced to settle for a point at St James Park.
