Exeter City midfielder Harry Kite says he and his teammates are really looking forward to Tuesday night’s Premier League Cup match against Doncaster Rovers, following a positive start to the campaign.
City under-23s won their opening group match 3-0 at home to Aston Villa, with a very good performance. However, againat Doncaster they will face a tough test as they have also started the competition positively with 1-0 victories over Portsmouth and Aston Villa.
“We are looking forward to it and hopefully we can put out a good performance, in front of some of our fans, at St James Park,” he said. “They (Doncaster) will be a tough test, but if we play like we did against Aston Villa then we can beat anyone.
“I think we were excellent that day, everyone played their part. We implemented what we wanted to do in the game. We pressed them high, we won the ball back and I think it was a really good performance. So hopefully we can carry that on and we can put in another good performance tomorrow.”
Asked how important these games were in terms of his and his teammates' development, Harry, who is on loan at Taunton Town, said: “I think it is a good test because you are playing against some really good teams. It shows what we can do and I think it is really enjoyable to be playing in games like this as well.
“The fans were great when we played against Aston Villa and I saw on Twitter when they said how much they enjoyed the game and that it was great value for money, so hopefully they can come and support us again and we can put in a performance that they can be proud of and glad that they watched.
“People say that you don’t hear the fans on the pitch, but you can definitely hear them. And say, just for example, you have a couple of minutes where things don’t go your way you need those fans to get behind you and really back you up and I think that gives you more confidence and motivation.”
