📝 Match Preview: Barnsley (A)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match!

26 January 2024

Exeter City are back on the road this weekend to face Barnsley in a 3pm kick-off on Saturday at Oakwell Stadium.

City will be looking to build on four points from their last two matches, and Tuesday night's fantastic performance which earned three points at Bristol Rovers.

The Grecians head to face a Barnsley side that is currently sitting in fifth place in the League, just four points off first, meaning it will be another tough test for Gary Caldwell's side. 

Barnsley come into the match having won three on the bounce in the League, narrowly beating Oxford United 1-0 in Tuesday night.

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

"It's going to be a tough game. We went to Blackpool and found what a difficult game it is. It is not a game that you can play ok in and expect to get something, we'll have to probably play even better than we did on Tuesday," Gary said.
