Match Preview: Exeter City vs Crawley Town

13 November 2015

A look ahead to the clash with the Red Devils


EXETER CITY return to Sky Bet League 2 action this weekend when Crawley Town visit St James Park.

Paul Tisdale's men are looking to carry their Emirates FA Cup performance over into this one, but will have to do without Manny Oyeleke, who had to come off against Didcot. Danny Butterfield, Christian Ribeiro, Craig Woodman and Lee Holmes are all in contention, but this one has come just too soon for captain Matt Oakley, who will hopefully be available for the trip to Plymouth Argyle next week.

Christy Pym is also unavailable after his finger operation this week, while Will Hoskins is not ready yet.

Mark Yates' Crawley have won five of their last seven in the league, and are looking to ascend the table after a disappointing start to the season since coming down from League 1 last year.

You can pay on the gate to see City take on the Red Devils at St James Park. Hope to see you all there!


Dean Moxey struck a late equaliser to earn City a point at struggling Crawley. Rob Edwards had scored a free-kick to hand City the lead, but Oliver Allen scored twice to hand Crawley the advantage.

Head to Head:

Exeter City wins: 8
Crawley Town wins: 0
Draws: 3

Referee: James Adcock
Assistants: Timothy Wood, Andrew Quin
Fourth: Lee Swabey

City are taking part in Tickets for Troops tomorrow, with a number of forces personnel due to attend the fixture.

There are three Kids in Charge tomorrow - two junior scoreboard assistants and one junior mascot.

University of Exeter students who attended the recent Varsity match at St James Park were offered free tickets for this one - we hope they will go on to form the core of the Exeter City support in the future! 

The National League match between Bromley and Altrincham will be shown live on the screens at the Park. Come down early and watch the game while you read your programme!

Also, Danny Butterfield is the first City star to take on our Ten Questions quiz.

This and much more, all available for £3 in the Club Shop and around St James Park.

"I'm not unhappy with where we are in the table, but I would have expected and hoped to be a little higher than we are. I'm not overly worried about it, because I think that we've got the capability to rise out of that pack and into the play-off hunt at the very least. There's plenty of time to do it, but we have to do it at some point." - Paul Tisdale

West Exe Rangers Under-10s and Bradworthy Youth take on the half-time shootout tomorrow. Enjoy your day all!
