📝 Big Match Preview: City v Yeovil Town

All you need to know ahead of the 1pm kick-off on Boxing Day.

26 December 2018

Exeter City are quickly back in action as they welcome Yeovil Town to Sky Bet League Two on Boxing Day in a 1pm kick-off.

The west country derby will see the Grecians look to make it three consecutive wins after their excellent 3-2 win over Oldham Athletic away from home on December 22.

Ahead of the match against the Glovers, manager Matt Taylor said: “I don’t think we’ve beaten them for a number of years now, apart from in the Checkatrade Trophy on penalties. It’s a local derby, on Boxing Day, you couldn’t ask for a better game.

“Hopefully the fans can really get behind us, hopefully the away end will be close to full and the atmosphere will be fantastic.”

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met back in early October when they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Huish Park. Jayden Stockley gave the Grecians the lead before Darren Way’s men struck back with goals from Jordan Green and Alex Fisher, but the City number 11 got himself on the scoresheet once again with a fantastic header in front of the travelling City fans to level the score. The Grecians pushed to find a winner with late chances, but it wasn’t to be as the sides shared the points.
