💬 Archie Collins looks ahead to Accrington Stanley clash

23 March 2023

Exeter City midfielder Archie Collins expects a tough game as the Grecians welcome Accrington Stanley to St James Park this Saturday.

“There are tough games coming up, I feel like every game in this division is tough, if we focus on ourselves and do things right, then on the day, we can give anyone a good game and hopefully get three points.”

Collins has found himself playing further forward since the arrival of Gary Caldwell, a role that he has enjoyed playing in so far.

“I’ve had more goals that are closer to the goal, and I’ve been getting closer to the box on attacks, gambling a bit more and I feel like with the style that we play, I have more freedom to get into the box,” Archie said.

“When I’m playing in any position, I try to enjoy it as much as I can, but when you get more attacking options, I’ve definitely enjoyed playing in the ten as well as any other position on the pitch.

"It is difficult playing week in week out, trying to grind out performances, staying on top of things, because there is a lot of pressure that comes with it, so I just feel like mixing up a bit suits me, and allows me to have a clear head and enjoy it.”
