Match Preview: Portsmouth vs Exeter City

28 September 2015

A look ahead to the trip to Fratton Park

PORTSMOUTH VS EXETER CITY
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
FRATTON PARK
TUESDAY 29TH SEPTEMBER 2015
KICK-OFF: 7:45PM


EXETER CITY visit Portsmouth tomorrow evening for a Sky Bet League 2 clash.

It will be the second time in September that the Grecians have taken on Pompey - goals from Ryan Harley and Alex Nicholls helped Paul Tisdale's side knock Portsmouth out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy earlier in the month, but the home side is likely to line up a lot differently this time around.

Nursing a few injuries from the weekend's defeat to Wycombe Wanderers at St James Park, a few City changes are to be expected, while Portsmouth have Michael Doyle back available for selection, but Gary Roberts is carrying an ankle problem.




City fans can pay on the night at Fratton Park.

Full details can be found here.

"I knew on Thursday that Ryan Harley and Jamie McAllister wouldn't be fit this weekend - we now have to judge whether they'll be ready for Tuesday. We've now got a big game on Tuesday, and we consider every game as a potential game to get points from. We just need to go there and back ourselves." - Paul Tisdale
