📝 Match Preview: 🆚 Colchester United (A)

All you need to know ahead of Tuesday night

22 November 2021

Exeter City are finally back on the road after four games at home as we travel to Colchester United on Tuesday night.

With five league wins on the spin, the Grecians are in fine form and make the journey to Essex looking to continue that run following Saturday's 2-1 win over Carlisle United at St James Park. 

The U's were beaten 1-0 by Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but were were victorious in their last home match as they beat Scunthorpe United 2-1 at the JobServe Community Stadium. 

Pierce Sweeney's Thoughts

Pierce Sweeney is using his previous experiences to ensure complacency does not set in, as the Grecians look to extend their club-record unbeaten run.

Chatting ahead of the trip to Essex to face Colchester United, the defender said:

"I've played enough games in this league to know if we go to Colchester expecting to win, it just won't happen. We've got to show them in high regard and bring the game to them.

"They need a result maybe even more than we do, so we're going there under no illusions that it's going to be a difficult game."

On the twenty match unbeaten record, Pierce has highlighted the "positive vibe" around the club. 

"If you were to ask footballers who have been part of a squad to go twenty unbeaten, very few will stick their hands up. It's a really nice feeling. The next milestone is hopefully 25 games and tomorrow is the first step toward that."
