📝 Match Preview: MK Dons (H)

The Dons make the journey to Devon this weekend

3 September 2022

Exeter City are looking to get back to winning ways this weekend when we take on MK Dons at St James Park.

Following defeat by Newport county in the Papa John's Trophy on Tuesday, Matt Taylor's side hope to make amends against the Dons. 

Liam Manning's side lost their first three games of the season without scoring but are now three unbeaten having won 4-0 at Morecambe last weekend - though they were also beaten in the Papa John's Trophy on Tuesday night.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"This is potentially the biggest test we've faced this season. They're an impressive team," Matt said.

"They've recruited well and recruited strongly - they're a well backed football club. Looking at their recent results, they've found the winning formula.

"Their manager is someone I know well and I look forward to catching up with him on Saturday. The game could show the very best of what League One has to offer this weekend and that has to inspire us mentally.

"We are looking for a proper home performance from ourselves."
