📝 Match Preview: Fleetwood Town (A)

All you need to know about Saturday's match

10 November 2023

The Grecians hit the road on Saturday, as they make the long trip to Highbury Stadium to face Fleetwood Town in a 3pm kick-off in Sky Bet League One.

City head to Highbury looking to arrest a run of form that has seen 10 defeats in 12 matches but face a tough test against a Cod Army side themselves struggling in the bottom half of the table.

City will be looking to build on their last League match, where Ryan Trevitt's late header earned a point against Lincoln City.

Gary Caldwell's thoughts

Gary Caldwell has given his thoughts as City face the long trip to Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

The Grecians head to Highbury looking to arrest a run of form that has seen 10 defeats in 12 matches but face a tough test against a Cod Army side themselves struggling in the bottom half of the table.

"Fleetwood are a team who have been through transition with a new manager coming in and they have changed their style," Gary said of Saturday's opponents.

Fleetwood.jpg

Football had been played in Fleetwood before a more definite picture emerged in the 1880s. Fleetwood Rangers was the first of a number of incarnations. The club reformed as Fleetwood Wanderers in 1997 and became Fleetwood Freeport just after the start of the 1997-98 season.

The Highbury ground had been empty for a couple of years with almost all the facilities vandalised. A number of willing volunteers set about clearing up. After much effort, the club was accepted for membership of the North West Counties League. At the start of the 2002-03 season, it reverted to its former name of Fleetwood Town.

Fleetwood Town now play in Sky Bet League One, with Highbury Stadium’s capacity 5,137 across four stands. These includes the Parkside Stand (2,088 seats), Memorial Stand (1,702 standing), Percy Ronson Stand (731 standing) and Highbury Stand (616 seats).

How to Get there

By Car

The postcode for the stadium is FY7 6SP

By Train

The most convenient mainline station is Blackpool North. The station is 7.5 miles from the football ground so you’ll need to grab a cab or bus.

The train from Exeter St Davids takes around 5 hours and involves 2 changes, however the latest train back leaves at 4.50pm so an overnight stay would be required.
