📝 Big Match Preview: City v West Ham United under-21s

All you need to know ahead of Tuesday evening's match

24 September 2018

Exeter City are quickly back in action at St James Park as they welcome West Ham United under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy.

City made a promising start to the competition when they beat Yeovil Town via a penalty shootout in the first group game meaning they sit on two points with two games to play at home.

The match could well see manager Matt Taylor make changes to the side that beat Cheltenham Town 3-1 at home last weekend, with the likes of Archie Collins, Jack Sparkes and Dara O’Shea expected to come in.

Ahead of the match, Dara said: “We’re expecting a tough game. They’ll be good technically, I think I’ve played against them a few times for West Brom, so I know they’ll move the ball well and they’ll look to get it down and play it wide.

“It will be a good, tough, test for us and I think it will be something a little bit different away from League Two. They will want to bounce back (following defeat to Bristol Rovers in their first group game,) and they’ll be hungry for it.”

Dara is hoping for more game time with the Grecians
