Match Preview: Plymouth Argyle vs Exeter City (JPT Round 2)

6 October 2015

A look ahead to the JPT tie at Home Park

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE vs EXETER CITY
JOHNSTONE'S PAINT TROPHY SECOND ROUND
HOME PARK
TUESDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2015
KICK-OFF: 7:45PM

IT'S A DEVON DERBY in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy as the Grecians head to Home Park tomorrow night.

Hosts Plymouth Argyle went top of Sky Bet League 2 at the weekend, making this the third time that Exeter City have met the league leaders already this season. Both of those instances ended in a memorable three points for the Grecians, but progression in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy is at stake in this one.

City will do without Will Hoskins, who suffered a back spasm in the warm-up at Newport on Saturday. This will be the first time that Derek Adams has come up against Exeter City since he took over the managerial hotseat at Home Park over the summer.

This will be Plymouth Argyle's 5,000th competitive game in their history.



City fans can pay on the gate at Home Park - ticket info is here, while further info for travelling supporters is here.
