Jay gets the nod for Northampton tripYoungster Matt Jay has been handed his first start of the 2014/15 campaign, as he is named alongside striker Graham Cummins for the trip to Northampton Town.
Jay’s inclusion, replacing Aaron Dawson, is the only change to the Grecians’ starting XI from the 1-1 draw with York City a week ago.
The change is likely to see Scot Bennett back in the defensive ranks after his start as a forward against the Minstermen.
Meanwhile there are a few familiar names in the Northampton team, with ex-City players Chris Hackett starting and Lawson D’Ath among the subs.
Northampton Town: Duke; Tozer, Collins, Diamond, Robertson; Hackett, O’Toole, Byrom, Mohamed; Sinclair, Richards.
Subs: Nicholls, Ravenhill, D’Ath, Moyo, Archer, Roberts, Toney.
Exeter City: Pym; Wheeler, Baldwin, Bennett, Oakley, Woodman; Sercombe, Davies, Grimes; Jay; Cummins.
Subs: Hamon, Keohane, Dawson, Riley-Lowe, Tillson, Pope, Watkins.
