📝 Match Preview: Oldham Athletic v Exeter City

A look ahead to tomorrow night's match in the north west

20 August 2019

Exeter City will look to continue their unbeaten start to their League Two season as they make the trip to Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night in a 7.45pm kick-off.

The Grecians have picked up two wins so far and go into the match at Boundary Park following a 1-1 draw with Swindon Town.

Manager Matt Taylor believes he could make changes to the side that started the match with Swindon with players waiting to come in and impress.

He explained: “I’ve got to assess it on Monday and Tuesday with Tom’s (Parkes) suspension and Randell (Williams) looks like he may be a bit of a doubt.

“We’ll see, it’s the reason why we’ve got a squad. MJ (Matt Jay) was ready when he came on, we’ve got Jack Sparkes waiting in the wings, and Ben Seymour. We’ve got lots of personnel waiting and ready to go.”

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met towards the end of the 2018/19 season at St James Park as both teams looked towards a play-off push.

In a narrow affair, it was City who picked up all three points through Ryan Bowman. A quick free-kick saw Lee Martin beat his man before crossing for Randell Williams to have his header saved, before Bowman headed home the rebound from close range.
