📝 Match Preview: City v Crawley Town

Details ahead of Good Friday's match with Crawley Town.

19 April 2019

Exeter City welcome Crawley Town to St James Park in a 1pm kick-off on Good Friday in Sky Bet League Two.

The Grecians go into the match following a 2-0 win over Port Vale last time out and will be looking to further consolidate their place in the play-off places with a win over Gabriele Cioffi’s men.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “I think they (Crawley) are relatively safe, perhaps one point or one victory away from it. We’re fighting for different things, the pressure is still the same, top or bottom end of the table, but we’re in a good position in terms of where we are. We need to force that home in the next four or five days, keep picking up points when we can and keep taking opportunities that come our way.”


The sides last met back in October when the Grecians travelled to West Sussex. Filipe Morais but the home side ahead when he found the net before substitute Lee Holmes levelled the score in the 79th minute with a well-taken finish.
