City v Forest Green Rovers

All you need to know about tonight's FA Cup replay

12 December 2017

Exeter City entertain Forest Green Rovers in the FA Cup on Tuesday night after the two sides drew their original second-round tie 3-3 at the New Lawn 10 days ago.

The winner of the tie will face a match at home to Premier League side West Brom in the third round of the competition but manager Paul Tisdale is not getting looking ahead to that tie and wants his players to focus on the task in hand. 

“Let’s forget about the prize and think about the game,” said Tis. “That third round tie doesn’t exist until we, or if we, win the game on Tuesday.”

Exeter City supporters' will be holding a minute's applause at tomorrow's match against Forest Green Rovers for City fan Barry Thompson, who sadly passed away over the weekend.

Barry, or Baz as he was affectionately known, was a lifelong City fan who was red and white through and through. He sadly passed away after a short battle with cancer, aged 50.

Despite living in France, Baz would take his place in the centre Big Bank as often as he could. Baz was moderator of the popular Facebook Supporters' Discussion group and tributes have been pouring in about his wicked sense of humour, caring nature and knowledge of all things Exeter City. The minute's applause will take place during the 50th minute, to mark that Baz had recently turned 50. Please do join in if you are attending the match.
