📝 Match preview: Coventry City v Exeter City

A look ahead to the Carabao Cup clash with Coventry.

13 August 2019

Exeter City are quickly back in action as they make the trip to Birmingham to take on Coventry City in the Carabao Cup.

Having taken six points from their opening two league fixtures, the Grecians enter the first round of the competition looking to progress against their League One opponents.

Ahead of the match, goalkeeper Lewis Ward said: “You always want to prove yourself against higher opposition. We know that we’re more than capable of getting a result there and progressing in the competition so we’ll just have to make sure that we stay focused on what we can do and play our game, then hopefully get a result.”


The Grecians last came up against Coventry City in the League Two play-off final at Wembley in 2018 as City were denied promotion with a 3-1 defeat in the capital.

Jordan Willis put Coventry ahead just a few minutes after half-time before Jordan Shipley’s deflected strike found the net soon after. Jack Grimmer then netted a third before Kyle Edwards scored City’s only goal of the day.
