📝 Match Preview: Swindon Town (A)

City on the road this Saturday

4 February 2022

Exeter City will be backed by over 1200 supporters when they travel to Swindon Town on Saturday.

Following 4 clean sheets on the bounce, the Grecians travel to the Energy Check County Ground buoyed by recent performances as they take on a side just one place above them in the Sky Bet League Two table. City were held to a goalless draw by ten-man Hartlepool United at SJP last weekend, while Swindon's last match saw them grab a last gasp equaliser to draw 1-1at home to Crawley on Tuesday evening. 

Swindon have been one of the success stories of the season having rebuilt a squad that is challenging for the top despite fears over their existence in the summer, before current owner Clem Morfuni changed the club's fortunes.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

The Grecians head to the Energy Check County Ground unbeaten in four league matches and will travel backed by well over 1200 supporters in the away end, which Matt thinks will create an intense atmosphere in Wiltshire.

"It is great to see the feel good factor back at Swindon after everything they have been through," Taylor said.

"We have said today that you want to play in front of good crowds on a good pitch. Our away fans travel so well and I know they will be well supported as well. It feels like a bigger game even though there are still 19 or 20 games to go this season because of where the two teams are in the table.

"Both sets of fans will be going there with certain expectations."
