📝 Match Preview: Walsall (H)

All you need to know ahead of Tuesday night's match under the lights

1 March 2021

Exeter City will be looking to quickly return to winning ways as Walsall visit the Park for a 7pm kick-off on Tuesday night.

The Grecians fine run of form that saw them four unbeaten and ten points gained came to an end at Crawley Town on Saturday, as ten-man City were beaten 2-0.

Tuesday's match under the lights is the first of City's back-to-back home games and comes against a Saddlers side that haven't been in the best of form in recent weeks.

Walsall are without a win in their last five matches, and were narrowly beaten 2-1 by in-from Bradford City on Saturday.

The Grecians will be without Tom Parkes and Ryan Bowman who are both serving suspensions.

Alex Fisher's Thoughts

Ahead of the match, City forward Alex Fisher said the team are looking forward to returning to home soil after travelling hundreds of miles on the road.

"With two home games coming up it will be a good opportunity to pick up maximum points. said Alex. 

"As cliche as it sounds we like to focus on our approach. We know what they are going to be about and we look forward to this opportunity as it's a home game where we have a good record.
