With pre-season over and the League One campaign just two days away, Gary Caldwell has previewed City's season opener as the Grecians head to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
City were the opponents for Wycombe boss Matt Bloomfield first home match in charge last season, and Caldwell expects the Chairboys to make tweaks after a first pre-season under Bloomfield's his belt.
"From what I've seen there only seems to be subtle changes, I don't think there's been a shift in how they play. They are still fairly direct," Gary said.
"I would say that at their home ground they will want to create energy and momentum by putting you under pressure. We have analysed their pre-season games - but it's never easy, you don't have a bank of games you can watch to find tactical principles they use, but we've looked into as much as we can.
"Wycombe are a side who always compete in the top end of this league. I felt last year when we went there we played well in terms of performance. We know what to expect and we know what we need to do to get the win."
