📝 Match Preview: Morecambe v Exeter City

A look ahead to the trip to Morecambe

23 August 2019

Exeter City quickly return to Sky Bet League Two action when they travel to Morecambe this weekend.

The Grecians go into the match still unbeaten in the league this season and make the trip to Lancashire following a 0-0 draw with Oldham Athletic in midweek.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “The players have come back in pretty well. The mindset is right, everyone is feeling slightly disappointed to miss out on the three points, but perfromance-wise there is a lot to be pleased about.

"Anywhere you go you have to be tough, sharp, start the game well and be resilient."

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met back in January last season at St James Park as they played out a 0-0 draw in Devon.

Despite Ryan Bowman making his debut as a second half substitute, the Grecians had a number of chances to take the lead, but a resolute Morecambe defence battled well to hold out for a point.

BY RAIL

You are able to take the train up to Morecambe on the day of the game. You can take the 7:24am service from Exeter St. David’s up to Birmingham New Street before changing to take the 10:15am train up to Lancaster. From Lancaster you then need to take the 12:14 train to Morecambe which takes around 10 minutes. It is then a 1.2-mile walk from the station to the Globe Arena. Coming back, it is difficult to return on the same day because the last train from Morecambe to get you back to Exeter on the same day leaves at 17:04, which will of course leave very little time to catch after the full-time whistle.

BY ROAD

Follow the M5 and M6 to A683 in Lancashire. Exit the M6 at junction 34 and follow the signs for Morecambe. After around five miles you will reach a crossroads (with a McDonalds over on the right) where you turn right onto the Morecambe Road.

You will then reach a roundabout, (where there is a Toby Carvery) where you take the first exit into Westgate Road (signposted West Promenade, Sandylands.) Continue along this road for about one mile and you will reach the stadium on your right.

PUBS/FOOD

Just outside the ground is a Marston’s pub that serves food and drinks. Also, the Regent Leisure Holiday Park serves food and drinks with Sky Sports on a large screen. If you have time, it is also a good bet to take a 15-minute walk down to the seafront. With the entrance to the stadium behind you turn right and it is then a straight road up to the promenade
