All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

9 December 2023

Exeter City return to action at St James Park on Saturday to take on Port Vale in a 3pm kick-off.

City will be looking to build on last Tuesday's draw with Shrewsbury Town and get back to winning ways after a run of poor form.

To do that they will need your ever passionate backing!

Port Vale come into the match on the back of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stevenage in the Emirates FA Cup and winless since September 16 in EFL Sky Bet League One.

Gary Caldwell's thoughts

Gary Caldwell has given his thoughts as the Grecians prepare to take on Port Vale at St James Park on Saturday.

After a weekend without a game last time out, the group have been working hard on the training ground to rectify recent form, which they and Caldwell hopes the hard work pays off at the weekend.
