Back on the road, Exeter City travel to Stevenage hoping to extend their unbeaten league run to nine.
Ahead of the game, here are three ‘Boro boys looking to make the trip tricky for City, including a couple Ex-Grecians.
Scoring over double anyone else’s tally this season at Broadhall Way, Elliot List is keeping the goals ticking for Stevenage. The 24-year-old has five strikes to his name and has remained a constant threat in the eleven fixtures he’s played in this term.
The ex-Crystal Palace youth player joined Gillingham in 2015 and notched seven goals in 85 appearances for the Gills, but after joining Stevenage in 2019 has doubled that tally (14) in 13 fewer games, thanks to his goal against Hartlepool last weekend.
Out on the wing, he’ll not only be looking to find the net himself, but also tee up Luke Norris and former City striker Jamie Reid as the new Boro attacking force gels and takes shape.
‘One of our Own’ Jamie Reid now plays his football in Hertfordshire after joining in the Summer. Reid has two goals already this season as he makes headway at the Lamex Stadium.
Jamie joined Exeter at ten years old after growing up in Newton Abbot and attended South Dartmoor in Ashburton. Reidy graduated from the academy in 2012 and made his debut on Boxing Day that year. Reid’s most notable contribution in a City shirt came against Liverpool in the FA Cup when his pinpoint cross set up Tom Nichols to open the scoring.
Having never really settled into Tisdale’s plans, Reid had many a loan out to Truro and Torquay, before the latter signed him permanently in 2017. With 67 goals in just 167 appearances for the Gulls, Reid was snapped up by Mansfield Town, before moving to Hertfordshire this year.
Does this man need an introduction? Jake Taylor was firmly a fan favourite at St James Park and the former City captain left after five years here. Taylor originally came to Exeter on loan from Reading in the 2011/12 season where he made 30 appearences scoring thrice.
In 2014 his form at the Madejski Stadium earned him a call-up to Wales squad and he promptly made his debut against Cyprus, replacing other Royal Hal Robson-Kanu.
By 2016, Jake was back in Devon on a free and after back-to-back play-off heartache, Jake was given the armband to mark a new era at SJP under Matt Taylor. In total he played 293 times for Exeter City, scoring 32 times. In the Summer, Jake passed the armband onto Matt Jay as he moved onto pastures new at Stevenage.
