📝 Match Preview: Port Vale (A)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

11 April 2024

Exeter City are back on the road this Saturday, traveling to face Port Vale at Vale Park in a 3pm kick-off.

The match is City's penultimate away match of the season and the Grecians will be looking to extend the fantastic run of seven matches unbeaten, after Tuesday night's late show at Leyton Orient.

Port Vale come into the match scrapping for safety in EFL Sky Bet League One and after Tuesday night's defeat to Peterborough United they sit in the last relegation spot, joint with Burton Albion so will be pushing City all the way for the three points.

The match is the second of three straight away matches - if you're travelling, thank you so much for your support!
