📝 Match Preview: Bristol Rovers (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

2 February 2024

Exeter City will be looking to build on the recent strong form as they host Bristol Rovers at St James Park on Saturday.

The meeting is the second in just two weeks, after the Grecians picked up a fine win at the Memorial Stadium thanks to Sonny Cox's goal on January 23. City have picked up ten points from their last five games with three wins, a draw and a defeat and will be looking to extend this on Saturday as former Manager Matt Taylor makes his return to SJP.

Bristol Rovers picked up an impressive 3-1 win over an Oxford United side that sits in the play-off places in the League and will come to the Park in confidence.

Tickets are selling very well for the match, so it's worth grabbing yours early to guarantee your place!

Thank you for your support, Grecians!

Gary Caldwell's thoughts 

City take on the Pirates for the second time in 11 days following a 1-0 win at the Memorial Stadium thanks to Sonny Cox's strike, but Caldwell expects a very different type of game this time around. 

"In terms of preparation I think it is easier for both teams, but I don't think the actual game has any relevance as it was played in horrendous conditions," Gary said.
