📝 Match Preview: City v Crewe Alexandra

All you need to know ahead of Tuesday night's big match at the Park

3 March 2020

Two of the top three meet under the lights at St James Park as third placed City take on second placed Crewe Alexandra in a 7:45pm kick-off.

Just a single point separates the teams ahead of the match, but midfielder Nicky Law is keen to emphasise that the team need to forget that and focus on the team in front of them.

"It's a big game" said Nicky. "We have to try and clear our minds of that and make sure we do the things we know that have stood us in stead so far this season."

SUPPORTING ANDY'S MAN CLUB

Exeter City players will be warming up in Andy's Man Club t-shirts before Tuesday night's match against Crewe Alexandra at St James Park to help raise awareness of the group.

Andy's man club has become one of the most important organisations working to help men today – the group sessions are changing the lives of hundreds who have hit rock bottom and are continuing to grow in number at a remarkable rate.

THE CONTEXT

Two of the top three meet at St James Park on Tuesday. The Grecians come into the match sitting in third place, just a point behind visitors Crewe Alexandra.
