📝 Big Match Preview: Forest Green Rovers

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

26 October 2018

Exeter City will be looking to make it five wins in a row at St James Park, and extend the unbeaten run to 12 matches as they take on Forest Green Rovers in a 3pm kick-off on Saturday.

Ahead of the match, which sees the Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand in use for the first time, City-manager Matt Taylor believes the new facilities are an example of how the club is moving forward. 

Matt said: “The stand looks fantastic. It’s been a long time coming, I think everyone is looking forward to getting bums on seats and watching football.

“Facilities like this help the club along and it shows the way we are going. The club is moving forward, the away stand will be open at some stage in the next month or two then all of a sudden, we’ve got a ground we can be proud of.”

Matt also revealed that the Grecians are struggling from a few “little knocks and niggles” ahead of the match with Mark Cooper’s side, as the Grecians take on an opponent who have lost just once in the league this season.
