Gary Caldwell has given his thoughts as the Grecians prepare to host Blackpool at SJP this weekend - the first home league match of the season.
With two wins from two in league and cup to start the campaign, City will looking to make it three in a row against a Blackpool side with an identical record.
"They are one of the bigger clubs in the league and have one of the most competitive squads in the league, I'd say, and a team that has come down with real energy and desire to go back up," Gary said.
"This is going to be a real test for us but it's one that I'm looking forward to. We feel like we can win this game and it's the mentality we have to take into the game.
"We have done our work and analysed Blackpool to prepare for a difficult test. We have to impose ourselves on the game and play how we want to try and play, all while still bedding this new group of players together."
