City head to Hillsborough

20 April 2023

The Grecians penultimate away trip of the season sees them head to the iconic Hillsborough this Saturday to take on promotion chasing Sheffield Wednesday.

It will be City's first trip to Sheffield since 2011, and they will be looking to arrest a run of four consecutive league defeats. 

The Owls are gunning for the top, and are hot on the heels of Plymouth and Ipswich for the automatic promotion spots. Their 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night added three more points to their tally, which takes them to 87 for the season, just one behind the second placed Tractor Boys. 

A trip to Hillsborough certainly is no easy task, with Barnsley the only side to take maximum points at Wednesday's home this season. 

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

"We have to understand the game. Away from home against team likes this we have to make it a nervous stadium as we can, and that means not giving away early goals. We know how we want to go about it but it won't be easy. 

"They will come out on the front foot and get the crowd going. It's who dictates the battle early in the game that will decide it."

Last Time Out

Exeter City 1 Sheffield Wednesday 1 | 10/12/22 | Sky Bet League One

Callum Paterson's 95th minute effort denied the Grecians a memorable win against Wednesday, in a game where City should have taken all three points. Jake Caprice's strike put City ahead before Paterson's leveller.

Last Time In Sheffield

Sheffield Wednesday 1 Exeter City 2 | 07/05/2011 | Sky Bet League One

Troy Archibald-Henville scored THAT iconic goal as the Grecians ended the season with a superb away win. Jermain Johnson gave the Owls the lead before Daniel Nardiello levelled the scores. Archibald-Henville then scored that fine solo goal as City ended the campaign in a record high position of 8th in the third tier.
