📝Match Preview: Walsall (A)

City on the road as we head to the Midlands

20 January 2022

Exeter City are on the road this weekend as we make the relatively short trip to the top of the M5 to take on Walsall at the Bank's Stadium.

"The Matt Taylor Derby" as it has been coined by the media, owing to the manager of Walsall sharing his name with our own Matt Taylor, will be City's third league away game of the 2022, with the Grecians looking to build on last Saturday's 2-0 win over Scunthorpe United. 

The Saddlers were beaten 2-0 away by in-form Mansfield on the same afternoon, but will have home advantage this time round at a ground where City have historically found it tough. 


City will be wearing our turquoise/blue third strip for Saturday's match.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

(Our) Matt Taylor has given his thoughts for City's trip to the Banks's Stadium.

"Last weekend was a pleasing result and we look forward to this weekend."

"We have looked at a lot of video footage this weekend to prepare the players and they have got a spring in their step.

"Walsall is always a ground that our supporters travel well to and I look forward to seeing them all there."
