Exeter City defender Aaron Martin says the Grecians are looking to continue their positive momentum as they travel to MK Dons in Sky Bet League Two.
Matt Taylor’s side have started the 2018/19 campaign in good form having taken 10 points from their first four games, and travel to take on former City boss Paul Tisdale’s MK Dons who have also started the season well.
On the test that Milton Keynes will pose, Aaron said: “They’re all tough games to be honest. With the reputation that we are starting to build now everyone is going to be up for the game against us. We need to take that into the next game and make sure that we give everything like we have been and try to win the game on Saturday.”
Aaron also says the City players will be fully focused on taking three points back to Devon to help build on the squad’s long-term goals for this season.
“It’s brilliant to get three points against anybody.” Aaron said: “For us as a team and our goal as to where we want to be it’s another game that we want to go out and win regardless of who it is, or what the past has been. It’s another game and another three points that we need to get.”
The Grecians have somewhat of a busy schedule with Premier League side Fulham to come on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup which precedes a difficult clash with Lincoln City at St James Park. But Aaron says the squad are relishing the tests to come.
“It’s a big game Saturday, and Fulham is a huge one as well. We need to keep the momentum going now and keep winning games on the bounce.
“Everyone has been playing really well and the momentum that we’ve got behind us now is something that we need to continue, and hopefully we can do that on Saturday.”
The central defender has looked impressive since joining the club and has helped the Grecians to two clean sheets away from home, which is something he and the rest of the players are keen to build on.
He said: “Inside we know how many clean sheets we want to get to and we want to exceed that as well. The more clean sheets we get then, hopefully, the more wins we will get. We’ll do our job and let the other guys up the other end do theirs.”
