📝 Match Preview: Fleetwood Town (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

23 February 2024

Exeter City are back in action at the Park this Saturday to take on Fleetwood Town in a 3pm kick-off.

The Grecians will be looking to bounce back from back-to-back defeats last week and pick up three points against a Fleetwood side that sit in the bottom three in the League. Fleetwood come to SJP on defeat to Barnsley last time out.

Your support is crucial as we enter the final twelve matches of the season and there isn't anything like a full SJP that is full of noise! So grab your tickets early and join us at the Park! 

Gary Caldwell's thoughts

The Cod Army visit Devon with renewed confidence having picked up form under new manager Charlie Adam, while the Grecians will hope to bounceback from consecutive defeats and pull themselves further away from the bottom four. 

"Performance wise, Fleetwood have been a lot better and tactcially they have changed," Gary said.

"They have changed in and out of possession and how they go about winning games. I have seen a big difference in them so we have to be ready for a difficult game. We lost up there and that was probably one of the low moments of the season, where we were really poor. We have to put that but also be prepared, tactically, for facing a different team.

"Charlie Adam is someone I played with for the national team, but also against many times in the Old Firm. We have had some big moments together - it will be good to see him."

Level Playing Field Matchday

The Level Playing Field branding will be a key part of the match, with players donning the campaign t-shirts, while there will be plenty of social media content helping to raise awareness of the campaign messaging.

Celebrating the RNLI's 200th Anniversary
