Matt Taylor has given his thoughts as the Grecians prepare to face Cambridge United in the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup this Saturday.
City head to the Abbey Stadium to face the League One side, and Taylor says he believes the game will be an opportunity for him to assess his squad ahead of a tough December run in.
"I expect it to be a good marker for us this weekend," he said.
"We prepared for this game a little before Tuesday, just in case. We are going to face a League One side away from home and there's no pressure on us in relation to that.
"We're going to go there and give it a really good go. I've watched as many games of theirs in the last 24 hours as I can - against Wigan, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday, so we know what we're up against.
"If we put out our best, we will have a chance."
