The Red Lichties should pose a similar test as East Fife did earlier in the week – and new gaffer Todd Lumsden is aiming to prepare a team capable of surpassing last season’s achievement of reaching the Scottish League 2 play-offs, where they missed out on promotion.
The Angus-based side kick off their league campaign on the same weekend as Exeter City, and they will face another ECFC on the opening weekend – that is, Elgin City.
Once again, the result will come second to getting game-time for City players and the hope of staying injury-free.
However the competitive spirit will certainly mean that Exeter, who drew 1-1 in East Fife, will be hopeful of heading back to Devon on Friday with a win under the belt.
