A look ahead to the clash with the Exiles

EXETER CITY vs NEWPORT COUNTY AFC
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
ST JAMES PARK
SATURDAY 20TH FEBRUARY
2016
KICK-OFF: 1:00PM

EXETER CITY return to home action this weekend as Newport County AFC travel to St James Park as the Grecians look to bounce back from two consecutive defeats. 
 
After some recent disappointments on their travels, City have a chance to get back to winning ways against the Exiles. That will be no mean feat, however - the visitors come into the game chasing their third consecutive win and have impressed since Warren Feeney took over in January. 




Tickets can be purchased on the gate - we hope to see all of you here at the Park!




NEWPORT COUNTY AFC 1-1 EXETER CITY - RODNEY PARADE -  OCT 3 2015

Joel Grant put City in front in the second half, but County equalised twelve minutes later through Lenell John-Lewis. This was the then-Newport boss John Sheridan's first game in charge.
