Match preview: City v Lincoln City

All you need to know about the Grecians match with newly-promoted Lincoln City

17 August 2017

Exeter City continue their season at home to newly-promoted Lincoln City on Saturday.

The Imps, managed by Danny Cowley, won the National League last season with a total of 99 points and were also the first non-league side since 1914 to make it to the FA Cup quarter-finals knocking out Premier League Burnley along the way.

Speaking about the prospect of facing Lincoln City at home, City manager Paul Tisdale said: "It is a fresh challenge. We haven't played them for seven or eight years.

"I am looking forward to that but I am looking forward to any game we play at home at the moment. We are pretty positive about our chances and it would be nice to host a relatively new club at the park."

The IP Office Stand is sold out for the match against Lincoln City, meaning there is only standing tickets available in the Thatchers’ Big Bank.

Tickets should still be available to purchase, for the Thatchers' Big Bank on the day, but the club is advising that supporters buy tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. You can do this by clicking on the following link and then collect your ticket from the ticket booth in Red Square on matchday.

Hospitality is also available for this and all home fixtures at St James Park, from as little as £30 (including the matchday ticket). To enjoy the match in style email commercial@ecfc.co.uk or phone 01392 413957.
