📝 Match Preview: Stevenage (H)

All you need to know as City take on Steve Evans' side

25 March 2022

Exeter City host Stevenage at St James Park on Saturday as the Grecians look to continue their good run of form.

After four points on the road at Oldham and Port Vale in the last week, Matt Taylor's men return to home turf, welcoming the Hertfordshire side who will have new manager Steve Evans in the dugout for the first time after the sacking of Paul Tisdale earlier this month. 

St James Park will also welcome back former captain Jake Taylor, goalkeeper Christy Pym and striker Jamie Reid, who all now ply their trade at the Lamex Stadium. After a week off due to a Covid outbreak in the camp, Evans' side will be looking to drag themselves away from the relegation battle after losing 2-1 at home to Northampton in their last outing. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

Stevenage travel to Devon in the midst of a relegation battle but will be under the leadership of Steve Evans for the first time after he took over from Paul Tisdale last week. 

"Steve has a huge amount of experience and knowhow at this level, and knows how to get his team playing in the way that he needs to.

"We can't affect what has happened at Stevenage over the last few weeks, but we are aware of the issues they've been having. All we can do is be sure we put an energetic team out.

"We're at home so we have to put the opposition under pressure, and we'll need the home fans to pull us through as well."
