📝 Match Preview: Stevenage v Exeter City

A look ahead to City's first away trip of the season.

8 August 2019

Exeter City travel to Stevenage in their first match away from home of the 2019/20 season in Sky Bet League Two.

The Grecians go into the match following an opening day home win over Macclesfield Town at St James Park, and manager Matt Taylor believes it puts them in a positive position going into a tough match at the Lamex Stadium.

The City boss said: “It was a difficult game in terms of the performance, but we got the outcome that we wanted in terms of the three points and we move on now to Stevenage.

“We gave the lads a bit of down time at the start of the week on the back of the pre-season schedule and they’ve had two or three weeks of playing on Saturday and then Tuesdays. Hopefully they will be well rested and fresh in terms of their minds and bodies."

LAST TIME WE MET

It hasn’t been too long since the sides last came up against each other as City travelled to the Lamex stadium towards the end of last season.

Kurtis Guthrie put the home side ahead on 28 minutes before the Grecians hit back through Ryan Bowman five minutes before half-time.

City then had a goal disallowed and Randell Williams crashed an effort off the crossbar as Matt Taylor’s men were unable to take the three points on the road.

BY ROAD

To get to Stevenage from Exeter take the M5 north all the way up to the M4 East where you need to travel towards London. You then need to join the M25 clockwise and follow the motorway for a period of time before taking the exit for the A405. Continue along this road before you come to a roundabout and take the third exit for the A414. Follow this road for a while before you meet the A1 which you need to follow before leaving for a main roundabout and the A602 which will take you to the stadium.

BY RAIL

You can take the train from Exeter to get to Stevenage, but this will often require around two changes. If you take the 09:55 service from Exeter St David’s to London Paddington, you then need to take the underground to London King’s Cross. From there you need to take the 13:16 train to Stevenage which gets you there for 13:44. There is around a 1-mile walk from the station to the stadium. Coming back from Stevenage, you can get the 17:47 train and take the reverse route which will get you back to Exeter St David’s for 21:34.

PUBS/FOOD

According to footballgroundguide.com, there is a large club house bar at the ground, behind the south stand, which is popular with both home and away fans alike. Otherwise, there is not much in the way of pubs near to the ground. Still, if you like your real ale then it is worth taking the 15-minute walk to the 'Our Mutual Friend' pub in Broadwater Crescent.

Late Nicky Law strike keeps the Grecians 100 per cent start to the season going

10 August 2019

A stunning strike late strike from Nicky Law kept Exeter City’s 100 per cent start to the season going as they recorded a 1-0 win away at Stevenage.

The Grecians had created the better chances throughout the match and had built up a head of steam in the closing stages when a half cleared corner found Law on the edge of the box and he hit a sweet volley, with the outside of his boot, into the bottom corner.

City manager Matt Taylor made one change to the starting line-up from the opening day victory over Macclesfield as the fit again Craig Woodman replaced Aaron Martin who dropped to the bench.

It was the home side that went close to opening the scoring early on when Danny Newton drifted into some space in the area and hit a half volley towards goal. However, Lewis Ward dived to his left and got a strong hand to the ball to palm it away from danger.

After that City began to have the better of the first half chances as Randell Williams cut in from the right and hit an effort just over before then sending a free-kick arrowing towards the top corner only to be denied by a superb save from Paul Farman.

That chance was arguably the best of the opening 45 minutes, as defences remained on top, but further efforts came from City as Archie Collins had a shot blocked from the edge of the box and Pierce Sweeney sliced an effort into the side netting.

However, after the break it was City who made the all the running. The half was only seven minutes old when Williams ghosted his way past two defenders in the box only for his pull back to Law to get nicked off the toes of the midfielder.

Paul Taylor did lash a shot over for the hosts moments later, but that was about as good as it got for Stevenage in the second forty-five. Moments later Law was in the thick of the action again as he latched onto a Jake Taylor backheel only to be tugged back in the box prompting penalty appeals that were turned down.

Williams then hit another free-kick that deflected just wide before Law claimed for another penalty as his close range header appeared to hit the arm of a home defender. At this stage, with 15 minutes left on the clock, the match was very much with City as Law and substitute Lee Martin combined to set up Williams with another sight of goal but his effort from just outside the box was inches wide of the far corner.

So it was just reward when, on 88 minutes, a corner was half cleared to Law and he finished so brilliantly.

Further chances came City’s way in the closing stages by  Farman blocked a close-range shot from Williams and then palmed away a Law effort in stoppage time.

Exeter City: Ward; Sweeney, Moxey, Parkes, Woodman; Williams, J Taylor, Collins, Law; Ajose (L Martin, 70), Bowman. Subs not used: Maxted, A Martin, L Martin, Holmes, Warren, Jay, Fisher.

Booked: Collins, Williams
