Jake: “Hopefully we can continue our good run of form at home on Saturday”

City midfielder Jake Taylor previews the clash against Wycombe Wanderers

8 February 2018

Exeter City midfielder Jake Taylor is expecting a difficult game against Wycombe on Saturday at St James Park.

The Grecians drew 0-0 with Gareth Ainsworth's side in October's league game, and Jake expects another tough encounter. 

He said: “We know we are up against a good side who are doing really well at the moment. It will be a good game for everyone to watch and it will be a good game to win.”

Wycombe currently sit second in the Sky Bet League Two table, having won their last five consecutive league games, and Jake highlighted the attacking threat of Gareth Ainsworth’s side.

He said: “They’ve got a lot of very good players. They play good football but it’s up to us to try and counter that and concentrate on what we’re good at.

“Hopefully we can get a good result against a team that is around us in the table.”

Following City’s 1-0 defeat away at Luton last weekend, Jake noted the importance of bouncing back from that result with a positive one this coming Saturday.

The Welshman said: “We’re looking forward to getting back to playing at home and we’ve got a good run of home games coming up.

“Losing at Luton wasn’t great, but the boys are looking forward to getting back to St James Park and putting on a good performance for everyone involved.”

The Grecians have won their last six league games at St James Park, with Jake highlighting the advantage it can provide with a good atmosphere and a big crowd.

He said: “This season we have done really well at home. We’re comfortable with the pitch and the surroundings which other teams may have struggled with.

“So far at home this season we’ve done really well and hopefully we can continue our good run of form on Saturday.”

The midfielder has made 29 appearances for City this season and stressed his desire to remain in the starting line-up given the amount of fixtures at this point in the season.

He said: “It’s important for everyone to be on form and fully fit, myself included. If someone misses out, we have some really good players who can come in. We’ve got a great squad.

“For me personally, I try to take games one at a time and not look too far ahead. It’s important that over the next month we pick points up against the teams that are around us in the table.

“The lads are confident going into the Wycombe game. We have a great team spirit, we’ve worked hard as a group in training this week and everyone is looking forward to Saturday.”
