📝Match Preview: 🆚 Carlisle United (H)

Back at the Park this Saturday

20 November 2021

Exeter City have the opportunity to make it five league wins on the bounce when we host Carlisle United at St James Park this Saturday.

With this being the Grecians' fourth home match in ten days, Matt Taylor's side will be hoping for more home comforts with the visit of the Cumbrians, who will make the 700 mile round trip. 

City's last league fixture saw them overcome Oldham Athletic 2-1 thanks to goals from Matt Jay and Jevani Brown, while Carlisle were held to a goalless draw by Barrow in the Cumbria derby. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"Carlisle have had a difficult time of it, but they're picking up under the new manager," Matt said. 

"They're unbeaten in their last three games and have kept clean sheets in all of them, so they will be coming to us confident and with more structure.

"He's clearly doing a good job with his players, and they'll be more rested than we are because they have had a fresh week's training.

"We had to freshen the team up on Tuesday and we will be doing the same again on the back of our schedule."
