Gary Caldwell expects another tough pre-season test when they visit Taunton Town on Tuesday.
After a goalless draw at Bath in which the hosts defended well and worked City hard, the Grecians will head to the Cygnet Health Care Stadium as the big kick-off on August 5 edges closer.
"I'm hoping to get similar out of this game that we did on Saturday," Gary said.
"The levle of opponent went up and they put up a really good defensive action. We learnt a lot of lessons and it was a good exercise.
"Hopefully it's a nice evening for football!"
