Match Preview: Exeter City vs York City

21 August 2015

A look ahead to the clash with the Minstermen

EXETER CITY vs YORK CITY
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST 2015
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM

YORK CITY are the visitors for Exeter City's second home game of the season this weekend.

Competition for places in Paul Tisdale's starting eleven is heating up, with Manny Oyeleke impressing on his first league start at Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday, and the likes of Matt Oakley and Arron Davies both clamouring for a spot in the eleven.

David Wheeler hopes to be fully-recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out of the trip to the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium, but Jordan Moore-Taylor is not yet ready for inclusion.

York City could include captain Russ Penn and Keith Lowe in their starting eleven - both players played alongside City star Troy Brown when the trio were together at Cheltenham Town.



Home and away fans can pay on the gate - purchase tickets from the booth and enter at the relevant gates.

"We made it difficult for ourselves in the last few minutes at Dagenham - it's just about concentration and making sure that we keep our discipline in seeing the result through, because we did deserve it. We'll look to pick up the three points." - Troy Brown, speaking to the Express & Echo
