City v Swindon Town

All you need to know about tomorrow's match at St James Park

23 March 2018

Exeter City will be looking to build on Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Port Vale when they take on Swindon Town on Saturday.

Swindon, who have recently appointed Phil Brown as manager, are just three points and three places below the Grecians in the table and City manager Paul Tisdale is expected a tough encounter.

“I think it is going to be a difficult game,” he said. “They are an experienced team in many ways and they have just got an experienced manager who has taken over.  

“So the players, I’m sure, will be on their best behavior for him and giving everything they have got. 

“However, every game is difficult. I don’t think we see this game as any more difficult than we did Morecambe last weekend, or Port Vale on Tuesday or Lincoln next week. 

“I think every game is just all about concentration and disciplines and being at the top of our game.”

Meanwhile, Swindon Town are waiting on the fitness of leading scorer Luke Norris.

“Luke Norris will hopefully come to the party,” said Phil Brown. “He's been wrapped up in cotton wool.

“The potency and the threat of the two strikers is obviously something we need for Saturday, so he knows the level of importance of the game.

“It looks to me as though he’s going to be about 60-40 whether he can play or not, but I'll give him every opportunity.

“He'll travel with the team and hopefully by the start of the game he’ll be feeling good enough to play.”
