Match Preview: Exeter City vs Plymouth Argyle

1 April 2016

A look ahead to the Devon derby

EXETER CITY vs PLYMOUTH ARGYLE
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 2ND APRIL 2016
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM

EXETER CITY look to take another step closer to the top seven when Plymouth Argyle visit St James Park for the Devon derby this weekend.

The Grecians have met the Pilgrims twice already this season, with the Green Army winning in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and Ryan Harley's double sealing the bragging rights in the league.

Both of those were at Home Park - now we have two clashes at St James Park in the space of four days, with the St. Luke's Cup semi-final to follow on Tuesday evening.




If you're a member, you can purchase tickets online up to 12pm tomorrow, or in-person up to 5pm this evening at club reception. There will be no ticket sales on the gate.

"This particular game has an extra significance in terms of what the three points can do for both sides. There are elements of excitement and anxiety about it, but when it gets to 3pm on Saturday, the players will be going out there to do their best. We'll prepare as best we can for it, but it is a derby, and it's certainly not just a game." - Paul Tisdale
