📝 Match Preview: City v Mansfield

Details ahead of Saturday's match at St James Park

29 March 2019

Exeter City return to action at St James Park when they welcome Mansfield Town in Sky Bet League Two.

The Grecians go into the match with David Flitcroft’s side following two consecutive wins and will be looking to take points off a fellow promotion contender.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “They’re (Mansfield) a good team and the manager has done an excellent job and recruited well. They’ve conceded the fewest amount of goals in the league which shows they’re defensively sound but they’ve got good attacking players as well.


The sides last met earlier in the season when the Grecians claimed a 2-1 win away from home with goals from Dean Moxey and Nicky Law giving Taylor’s side all three points at the One Call Stadium.
