📝 Match Preview: Scunthorpe United

All you need to know ahead of tomorrow's match

23 October 2020

Exeter City are looking to stretch their unbeaten league run to six matches when Scunthorpe United visit SJP on Saturday, 1pm kick off.

Having come from a goal down to seal a late win over Crawley on Tuesday night, a second successive home game gives the Grecians the perfect opportunity to continue their good form. 

Scunthorpe come into the game looking for a boost having lost their last five matches in all competitions, and will also be in search of their first goal away from home this campaign. 

Ahead of the match, we spoke to manager Matt Taylor, who says City must replicate the type of performance shown in the second half of the win over Crawley if they are to once again collect three points.
