📝 Match Preview: Barnsley (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

5 October 2023

Exeter City will be aiming to return to winning ways in EFL Sky Bet League One on Saturday as they host Barnsley in a 3pm kick-off at St James Park.

City come into the match on the back of three straight League defeats but will be aiming to bounce back with your tremendous support at the Park.

The Grecians take on a Barnsley side that currently sit fourth in the League One table, having picked up a fine 4-0 win over Cambridge United in midweek.

So, head to the Park and get behind the men in red, who really appreciate your support and it certainly makes a huge difference!

Previous Encounter

Exeter City 3 Barnsley 1 (28 March 2023) EFL League One

Exeter City made it four home wins in a row with a stunning 3-1 win over promotion chasing Barnsley. An unplayable performance from Jay Stansfield who opened the scoring, followed by a Harry Kite strike and Sam Nombe penalty, secured a magnificent three points for the Grecians, who will have some say in the make up of the top two in League One this season.
