💬 Matt Taylor previews Carlisle United clash

City boss has his say on trip to Cumbria

7 April 2022

Exeter City manager Matt Taylor is expecting a tough clash when the Grecians make the 700-mile return journey to Brunton Park on Saturday.

City face a side that drew with high-flying Tranmere Rovers last Saturday and have picked up wins over promotion hopefulls Northampton Town and Bristol Rovers in recent weeks.

"They are one of the form teams and since the manager has taken over he has done a fantastic job," said Matt. "They were in a relegation battle at the time and to see that form turn around has been incredible and inspirational, so full credit to Carlisle, but we hope that form ends this week at the expense of ourselves.

"We generally play well when we go up there, the pitch suits us so we will have a good feeling about the environment."

City will once more be backed by an incredible support as over 350 tickets have already been sold for the mammoth journey, and Matt was full of praise for the travelling Grecians.

"It's incredible and has been throughout the season. We went to Barrow third game of the season having not won or scored yet, and they supported us really well on a windy, wet night. 

"They make the journey and the sacrifices so much and we appreciate it and look forward to seeing them on Saturday."
