City take on the Rovers this weekend

24 September 2022

Exeter City visit Forest Green Rovers this weekend, live on Sky Sports, looking to reverse their run of two consecutive defeats.

The 12.30pm kick off at the Bolt New Lawn will be our first visit to Forest Green Rovers since January of this year, when a depleted Grecians side drew 0-0. Rovers were of course promoted alongside ourselves from League Two last season.

Indeed, the last three matches between the two sides have ended goalless - the last player to score in this fixture was Archie Collins on Boxing Day 2020.

City's last league match was a 2-0 defeat to Burton Albion at SJP, while the Gloucestershire outfit were beaten 2-1 at home to Morecambe - though they did win 2-1 at Newport in midweek in the Papa Johns Trophy.

We have 1224 tickets but please note the West Terrace at Forest Green has Limited Seating (100), Small Covered Standing (180) and a Larger Open Standing Terrace with a capacity of 944.


For the first time this season we will be wearing the grey and pink away kit. 


Matt Taylor's Thoughts

The Grecians head up the M5 to face the side who beat them to the league title on goal difference with a number of injuries, and Taylor says he will asking players to step up.

"We have to put out a competitive team this weekend and we will be looking at other players to stand up and be counted in those positions," Matt said.

"Some players will be slightly out of position and unnatural. I still want us to look the same though. We managed to do it back in January there and that manahged to kick start the second half of our season.

"We wil assess who is fit and available and we will put out a team that shows what Exeter City is all about."
