City v Accrington Stanley

All you need to know about Saturday's match at St James Park

24 November 2017

Exeter City face Accrington Stanley at home this Saturday aiming to get back to winning ways having suffered back-to-back defeats.

Stanley sit third in the table, four points and one place above City. However, Grecians manager Paul Tisdale says it is too early in the season to start talking about six-pointers yet.

“I don’t think we are in that sort of territory yet where we have to start talking about six pointers,” said Tis.

“However, it is relevant all year and I do think they are a challenger to us and I’d like to be a challenger to them. They look like they are on good form. We are not at the moment. I think we need to be on our game on Saturday. There is no other way really because we have just lost two games and we have got to get back on the saddle and we have got to perform.”

There are a limited number of tickets still available in the IP Office Stand, as of Friday morning, but we urge fans to buy these in advance as it is more than likely that stand will sell out before kick-off.

There should still be standing tickets available in the Thatchers Big Bank on matchday. However, there is a £1 increase on the day of the game from those purchased in advance.

Fans can purchase tickets by calling 01392 411243 or by clicking on the following link. Tickets will then be available to collect on the day from the ticket booth in Red Square.

We are pleased to welcome RGB Recruitment as our matchday sponsors. It is the second match RGB Recruitment have sponsored this season as they were also match sponsors for our 4-1 victory over Morecambe. A good omen perhaps.

Bidfood were match sponsors also this season when we beat Crewe Alexandra 3-0 in mid-September, while RGB Building Supplies were match sponsors for our opening day victory over Cambridge United.
