📝 Match Preview: Weston-super-Mare (A)

Exeter City's second pre-season friendly of the summer schedule kicks off on Tuesday, with Matt Taylor's men making the trip to Weston-super-Mare.

The trip to the Optima Stadium will be a repeat of our first friendly last summer, when the Seagulls ran out 2-1 winners. This fixture is the second of the Grecians' scheduled pre-season matches, with City kicking things off away at Tiverton on Friday. 

Speaking on Friday night, Matt Taylor said he expects two separate XIs to play one half each against Weston-super-Mare.
