Match preview: City v Yeovil Town

All you need to know about the Grecians match with Westcountry rivals Yeovil Town

12 March 2018

Exeter City play one of their games in hand on Tuesday night when they host Yeovil Town at St James Park.

A victory could lift the Grecians level on points with fifth place Mansfield Town, while a win for the Glovers could move them 11 points clear of the relegation places with 10 games of the season left to go. 

City have some selection worries going into the game after both Lee Holmes and Jordan Moore-Taylor both picked up injuries in the first half of Saturday's match with Carlisle United. However, manager Paul Tisdale is confident they have the strength in depth to cope.

“We have got some issues going into Tuesday with selection and injuries," said Tis. “It is going to be game after game from now until the end of the season and we have got a really good squad and that is the benefit of having strength in depth and we have got that. 

“It has taken a long time to get Troy (Brown) and Jordan (Moore-Taylor) back in as a central partnership and we might have to look again at those that have come in to deputize. Dean Moxey did a really good job coming into that role (against Carlisle). I am not sure that is a position he will play every week from the start, but we have got a good squad and that is what they are there for. Those players have got to be ready.”

NEW HOSPITALITY FACILITIES 

Supporters attending match day hospitality or events and conferencing at St James Park will be able to make use of the new bar and toilet facilities at the Park.

To finish off the refurbishment of the Supporters' Trust suite, a brand new, more modern bar has been installed which saves a little space in the room, and is more pleasing on the eye.

As part of the upgrade the position of the ladies and gents’ toilets have now been swapped, something to bear in mind if attending tomorrow's match, with works being completed on one set, and the other being done after the Yeovil Town match. 

We hope you enjoy the upgraded facilities.

ACADEMY PRESENTATION

At half-time during City's match against Yeovil Town on Tuesday, the Exeter City Academy will take to the pitch for their annual parade. 

After the parade, the under-18s will be presented with the South West Youth Alliance division title by chairman Julian Tagg.
