📝 MATCH PREVIEW: Bristol Rovers (A)

The Grecians round of pre-season with a trip to Bristol Rovers

27 July 2018

Exeter City round off their pre-season campaign with a trip to the Memorial Stadium to take on League One side Bristol Rovers.

After Friday night’s 2-2 draw with Taunton Town where a host of youngsters featured, the Grecians will look to fine tune their preparations against higher opposition to ensure they are ready for the first match of the 2018/19 season at home to Carlisle United on Saturday, August 4.

Looking ahead to Saturday's game at the Memorial Stadium, Matt Taylor said: "We will have a better idea of where we are at 5pm on Saturday and we will work hard next week and prepare as best we can for Carlisle United

“They (Bristol Rovers) are a league above us, but as I have said all pre-season with have got some good players so I am expecting it to be a good game.”

About Bristol Rovers:

Rovers compete in Sky Bet League One and play their home matches at the Memorial Stadium. They too will play their final match of pre-season, a schedule which has seen some mixed results as Darrell Clarke prepares his side for the first match of their season away at Peterborough United. Last season Rovers had a mid-table finish as they came 13th, but no doubt they will be keen to improve on that in the coming season and perhaps push for a play-off spot on League One.

Ticket Prices:

City fans are housed in the South Stand (seated) and ticket prices are as follows:

Adults: £10

65+/under-16: £5

Under-11s: £1

Please enter the ground via turnstiles 24-26

How to find the Memorial Stadium:

The journey to the Memorial Stadium is approximately 82 miles and we recommend that you allow around two hours of travel time, particularly due to holiday traffic on the M5 if driving.

Last time out:

The clubs last met competitively in April 2016 as the Grecians were beaten 3-1 at the Memorial Stadium with Jake Taylor netting for City.
