All you need to know about Tuesday's match

Exeter City are back on the road on Tuesday night and travel to Fratton Park to face Portsmouth in an 8pm kick-off, live on Sky Sports!

The Grecians will be looking to build on a really positive first week of the 23/24 season which has seen two wins and a draw and two clean sheets in the League after Saturday's goalless draw with highly fancied Blackpool.

Pompey come into the match, which is all-ticket, on the back of a strong 4-0 win over newly promoted Leyton Orient, meaning it will be a very tough test for City.
