City v Morecambe

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

28 September 2017

Exeter City take on Morecambe at St James Park looking to bounce back from back-to-back defeats against Coventry City and Notts County.

 The Grecains, who are still second in the table having won seven of their first 10 matches in League Two, but face an in-form Morecambe side who have picked up good results against Luton Town and Newport County AFC recently.

The game will see the two longest-serving managers in Football League go head-to-head, with Jim Bentley having been in charge of the Shrimps for over six years and Tis now in his 11th season as City manager. 

Tis said that he admires the work Jim Bentley has done and knows his team will be a tough nut to crack on Saturday. 

“I admire Jim (Bentley) greatly,” said Tis. “He has had a long time at Morecambe and does a really good job on the resources he has and I think, as always, they will be a tough nut to track.

“They (Morecambe) have got some continuity in the team and continuity in the manager. I am hoping Kevin Ellison doesn’t score a scorcher like he did last year. That was probably goal-of-the-season, his volley. I’m hoping he’ll keep that for another day but it will be a tough game – as it always is with Morecambe.”

 

There are limited amount of seats still available in the IP Office Stand so we advise supporters who are wanting to sit down for the match against Morecambe to purchase their tickets as soon as possible. They can do this 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. 

Standing tickets in the Thatchers Big Bank will still be available on matchday, but there is a £1 increase on the day so again we advise purchasing tickets in advance.
