📝 Big Match Preview: City v Macclesfield Town

All you need to know ahead Tuesday evening's match at St James Park

27 November 2018

Exeter City are swiftly back in Sky Bet League Two action as they welcome Macclesfield Town to St James Park on Tuesday night in a 7.45pm kick-off.

The Grecians made the long trip to Colchester last weekend a positive one as they battled to return to Devon with a point following a 1-1 draw and will be keen to build on that display against a Macclesfield side who will be buoyed by their win over Yeovil Town last time out.

Ahead of the match, City midfielder Nicky Law said: “From what we’ve seen of them they’re a difficult side to play against. From our point of view if we can score first then, when you’re against teams that are down there, teams can struggle with confidence.

“We need to concentrate on ourselves, respect our opponents, whether they’re first in the league or bottom of the table, there’s no easy games in this league.

Nicky Law says City are expecting a difficult encounter against Macclesfield

“The worst thing we could do tomorrow night is to turn up thinking we only need to turn up and win the game because it won’t be the case, it’ll be another tough game at home and we’ll be looking to do our own thing and do what we do well and hopefully get our first league win for a while which is the aim.”

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met in League Two back in 2009 as the Grecians ran out 4-0 winners with Adam Stansfield, Richard Logan, Neil Saunders and Craig McAllister netting for City at St James Park.

Grecians fall to defeat at St James Park

27 November 2018

Sponsored by

Harry Smith’s finish after 54 minutes condemned Exeter City to a 1-0 defeat at home to Macclesfield.

City looked the more likely in the opening period when Jonathan Forte almost found the net, but they struggled to break down a resilient Town side.

Grecians’ boss Matt Taylor made three changes from Saturday’s draw in Colchester, with Aaron Martin suspended, while Craig Woodman and Tristan Abrahams dropped to the bench for the incoming Luke Croll, Dean Moxey and Forte respectively.

The home side had the lion’s share of possession in the opening minutes, creating the first shooting opportunity of the game as Nicky Law’s corner fell to Pierce Sweeney at the back post, but his effort from a tight angle could only rattle the side-netting. Law then saw a volley held well by Kieran O’Hara in the Macclesfield goal soon after.

The Grecians had a golden chance to go ahead in the 19th minute, as a long ball from Croll was won in the air by Stockley – the ball fell kindly for Forte, though his effort was struck off-balance and flew narrowly over the bar.

Macclesfield then had a chance for themselves for Elliot Durell, but for a superb recovery from Dean Moxey -who was on hand to block his effort.

Law was at the heart of the Grecians’ play in the first half, and created another opportunity for Sweeney – a cross deep to the back post was met by the Irishman’s head, but O’Hara just about held on to the ball. City pressed and probed the Macclesfield back line and looked like they should have had a penalty after 34 minutes when Nicky Law nipped in to take the ball away from a defender, but referee Brett Huxtable looked disinterested in the appeals from the home side.

After half-time, the visitors broke the deadlock as Harry Smith poked home a cross from the right-hand side.

City had to wait until the 75th minute before creating a chance of note – Law swung in a corner from the left-hand side, and O’Shea rose highest but his header was agonisingly wide.

Jake Taylor’s ambitious effort from 25 yards was as good as it got for the Grecians in a relatively tame second period where City couldn’t produce anything to threaten O’Hara in the way they had in the first-half.
