📝 Match Preview: City vs Portsmouth under-23s

City under-23s back in Premier League Cup action this Tuesday night

4 February 2020

Exeter City under-23s play their final Premier League Cup home match on Tuesday night as they face Portsmouth under-23s in a 7pm kick-off.

The young Grecians have qualified for the next stage along with Doncaster, but a win over Portsmouth would put City on top of the group, so come and check out some of the future of Exeter City and some bright academy prospects.

The young Grecians have been in superb form in the competition so far and are unbeaten. The competition started with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa, this was followed by a 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers, a 2-2 draw away at Portsmouth and then a 4-0 win away at Aston Villa.

Ahead of the match, City defender Will Dean said: "Our main aim as a group is to top the group as that will give us a better draw in the next round."

How things stand

Ahead of Tuesday night's match, City have already qualified for the next stage alongside leaders Doncaster Rovers (both sides meet in the final group match on February 24 which should decide who will win the group.)
