📝 Match Preview: City v Cambridge United

All you need to know ahead of the match with Cambridge.

25 January 2019

Exeter City return to action at St James Park when they welcome Cambridge United to Devon in a 3pm kick-off.

The Grecians will be looking to bounce back from defeat away at Newport County AFC last time out, but they come up against an in form United side who have won three consecutive matches.

Ahead of the match on Saturday, manager Matt Taylor said: “A new manager has come in and taken over and they’ve hit a bit of form recently. They’re a very good attacking team and they have scored a lot of goals in the last few weeks and they’re coming off the back of an exciting game against Northampton Town last weekend.

“We’ve got to be at our best if we want to get anything out of the game. After the game at the weekend I was pleased with the attitude, mindset and how we went about the game in terms of the performance, but we need to add a little bit of quality in front of the opposition goal. We’re mindful of that going into this weekend.”

LAST TIME WE MET

The sides last met earlier in the season at the Abbey Stadium. An August evening in midweek saw the Grecians go ahead after eight minutes through Jonathan Forte before Jayden Stockley took the game away from United in the 14th minute.
