Exeter City welcome Burton Albion to St James Park this evening – the penultimate home match of their 2016/17 pre-season schedule.

The Brewers finished runners-up in EFL Sky Bet League 1 last season to clinch back-to-back promotions and book their place in the second tier of English football for the first time in their history.

Paul Tisdale’s side have impressed during their pre-season matches so far, registering four wins including a 2-1 victory over Truro City last night.
