📝 Match preview: Notts County v City

Details ahead of Saturday's match with Notts County

22 March 2019

Exeter City will be looking for back-to-back victories to Meadow Lane on Saturday in Sky Beat League Two.

The Grecians moved back into the play-off places on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Colchester United and face a Notts County side battling for survival at the wrong end of the table.

However, manager Matt Taylor is expecting a tough game as Notts County having only been beaten once by a side in the top half of the table at home this season. 

“We expect it to be a tough test but all our concentration has to be on ourselves we know that if we put in a performance that we are capable of then we are a stern test for any opposition,” said Matt.

“We go to a good stadium and hopefully a good pitch, followed by good backing, which we usually have away from home, and it is a game we can look forward to.” 

LAST TIME WE MET

Exeter City recorded a 5-1 victory over Notts County when the sides met at St James Park in September. 

Pierce Sweeney headed City in front before Jayden Stockley turned home a low cross from Hiram Boateng. Enzio Boldweijn pulled a goal back before second-half goals from Sweeney, Stockley and Aaron Martin wrapped up the win.

To get to Meadow Lane from Exeter, head north on the M5 before you reach the M42. Continue along that road before merging onto the A42. After a short period, you will come to a roundabout where you need to take the third exit onto the A453 which will take you in towards Nottingham. 

You then need to merge off to the left to follow the B679 and follow that for a short period before joining the A60. A right over the bridge on the A6011 will take you to the stadium. Matchday parking is available for a small fee at three locations within close proximity to Meadow Lane. Roads in the immediate vicinity of the stadium are subject to parking prohibitions on match days but some street parking is available for those arriving early. The Old Cattle Market directly behind the away turnstiles is a convenient place to park.
