Matt Taylor has given his thoughts as the Grecians prepare to take on Rochdale at St James Park this Saturday.
With four matches remaining this season, the Grecians must pick up as many points as possible if they are to maintain their place inside the top three, but Matt expects Rochdale to make it difficult for his side this weekend.
"Rochdale should be given a lot of recognition for how they've performed this season. The fact they are safe and are looking up instead of down suggests what a fantastic job the manager has done," Matt said.
"It's not often you watch the opposition in preparation for playing them and you fall in love with a team straight away, but Rochdale. The way they play really impresses me.
"There will be no excuses as to why two very good footballing sides cannot go at it on Saturday."
