Exeter City will be looking to confirm their qualification for the next stage of the Leasing.com Trophy as they face West Ham United under-21s on Wednesday night in a 7pm kick-off.
The Grecians need a point to guarantee qualification but dependent on the result in the match between Cheltenham Town and Newport County could find themselves already through ahead of the match.
City have been in fine form in the competition so far, beating Cheltenham Town at SJP 1-0 and Newport County 2-0 at Rodney Parade and all is set for another great clash under the lights.
Ahead of the match Matt Jay said that the team is looking forward to the challenge. He said: "It's a competition that we have done well in so far, so we will be looking to get another three points. We are all looking forward to it like we do every other game."
