Exeter City will be looking to get back into the play-off places when they play Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday night. The Grecians, one of six League Two teams playing on February 20, know a victory will take them back into the top seven.
STADIUM: ALEXANDRA STADIUM (CW2 6EB)
The stadium has a capacity of 10,066, all seated. The main stand dominates the stadium and holds around 70 per cent of this capacity by itself.

Tickets can be purchased from the booth next to the supporters’ club at the entrance to the stand. Alcohol is not available in this stand, so if you are looking to drink it will have to be before or after the game in one of the local pubs.
