All you need to know about Saturday's match against Lincoln City

31 August 2018

Exeter City will be looking to get back to winning ways in EFL Sky Bet League Two on Saturday, as they host league leaders Lincoln City at St James Park

The Grecians suffered their first league defeat of the season last time out away at MK Dons, and after the midweek trip to Craven Cottage, City will be looking for the three points. 

City manager Matt Taylor is expecting a tough challenge on Saturday. "I see it being a physical, high-tempo game and a high-standard game from two groups of really good players at this level.” said Matt.

“We are certainly going to be up for Saturday,” said Matt. “Everyone is looking forward to it and it is a proper game of football to look forward to."

City last faced Lincoln City at St James Park in May 2018 in the play-off semi-final second-leg. On the night City booked their place at the League Two play-off final with a stunning 3-1 win with Jayden Stockley, Hiram Boateng and Ryan Harley all scored sublime efforts.
