Match Preview: Exeter City vs Bristol Rovers

26 November 2015

A look ahead to another local derby

EXETER CITY vs BRISTOL ROVERS
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 2015
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM

IT'S ANOTHER local derby for Exeter City as they look for a third win in a row this weekend at home against Bristol Rovers.

Darrell Clarke's Rovers came up from the fifth tier last term and have been a formidable outfit on the road in the current campaign. They signed striker Paris Cowan-Hall on loan from Millwall this week to boost a strikeforce led by top-scorer Matty Taylor.

City are without Danny Butterfield and Christy Pym for this one, but everyone else was in contention when Paul Tisdale spoke to press on Thursday afternoon.




Tickets for this one come under special pricing structures - see here for details.

"This will be a cracking game in terms of it being a local derby, and we haven't played Rovers for a couple of years now. They have a really, really good away record - I'm sure that they're disappointed with their home record, but they are a competitive side. They've come up from the Conference and retained the large part of their squad, which brings a continuity that gives an edge over a lot of teams." - Paul Tisdale
