📝 Match Preview: Salford City (H)

City back at home this Saturday

11 March 2022

The Grecians are at home on Saturday for the second of three consecutive matches at SJP, as we host Salford City.

Following Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Swindon which saw our highest attendance of the season, we once again need your support as we continue our strong form in Sky Bet League Two. Salford City, or the 'Ammies' as they are known, are unbeaten in five league matches though and it will be another stern test for Matt Taylor's men. They drew 1-1 at home to league leaders Forest Green last weekend, so have had an extra few days rest than the Grecians.

Following Tuesday's win over Swindon Town, the Grecians are buoyant but Matt expects a tough game against an in-from Salford side.

Matt's Thoughts

"They've hit good form and had a really strong January. They have a strong style," he said.

"They're robust and all their results tends to be pretty close. We have to stand up to a physical opposition and be physical ourselves. It's a difficult one to prepare for because we haven;t had much turnaround this week, but we'll be going for this all guns blazing.

"They're a good team with a good manager, but we have to be in a position towards the end of the game where we're not chasing it. But we'll never underestimate the opposition.

"We just have to get our attacking players as close to the opposition goal as possible, and the Salford players have to come off that pitch on Saturday knowing that we've put them under pressure."
