Match Preview: Exeter City vs Morecambe

28 April 2016

A look ahead to the clash with the Shrimps

EXETER CITY vs MORECAMBE
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 30TH APRIL 2016
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM

EXETER CITY look to round off the campaign with two straight victories beginning with this weekend's visit of Morecambe to St James Park.

Jim Bentley's Shrimps have had a tough time of it in the last few weeks, with a 7-0 defeat to Cambridge followed by a 4-1 home reverse to Stevenage. But the Globe Arena club, like City, will also want to push as high up the table as possible now that they know that they cannot move out of Sky Bet League 2.

City drew 1-1 at Morecambe earlier this season, with Jayden Stockley getting a debut goal for the Grecians.




 You can pay on the gate this weekend - or get your tickets in advance here.

Clinton Morrison is the cover star and feature interview of this edition of The Grecian. He talks about his plans for the future ahead of what looks likely to be his last home game with the club, and offers thoughts on his teammates, coaches and the Exeter City fans.

Lee Holmes tries to set the new top score in our Ten Questions quiz, and this issue comes with a free A2 autograph poster for you to get signed after the game.

That's not the only freebie this weekend - a copy of the latest issue of Late Tackle magazine will also come with your programme, while stocks last.

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




"It's about winning games, and it's about doing ourselves justice. There's a flat feeling, having missed out after our good run. Up until last week, we were starting to believe that it was possible, so it was a shame. We can't just take a couple of games off and have a holiday; I've already started the process of looking at the players that I'm going to have next year. We're not playing against a team that's competing at the other end, so that's handy, but that doesn't mean that we're taking it lightly, either." - Paul Tisdale
