All you need to know ahead of Tuesday night's match

23 January 2024

Exeter City make their shortest trip of the season on Tuesday night to face Bristol Rovers in a 7:45pm kick-off at the Memorial Stadium.

The Grecians will be looking to build on Saturday's point at the Park against Cambridge and will be aiming to make the short trip home with three points as they continue to look up the table.

City come up against former manager Matt Taylor's Rovers side that were narrowly beaten by in-form Blackpool on Saturday at the Memorial Stadium.

This will be the first meeting of the sides for over a year as the original match in October was postponed due to the International break. Who can forget that encounter on December 29, 2022 as City fought back to earn a remarkable 4-3 win with a late, late goal!

There are over 800 of you already making the trip, with a further 400 tickets now available. Thank you for your support.

Cheick Diabate's Thoughts

Defender Cheick Diabate has given his thoughts ahead of City's trip to the Memorial Stadium to face Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening.

"Whenever we play Rovers it is a good environment and it has always had that big game feeling to it, with a top atmosphere. I am looking forward to it and all the boys are, we're all thinking about getting the win there to be honest."

Uber and Private Hire services operate in Bristol, and many are wheelchair accessible and can provide a suitable alternative to the bus or car. The recommended point of drop off is Filton Avenue as this is the only access point to the ground.

Other pick-up points include: Honiton Road park and ride (by Miller and Carter Steakhouse), junction 28 (Cullompton services), junction 27 (Tiverton), junction 25 (Taunton). All other pick-ups by prior arrangement.

Currently Grecian Travel can only be booked directly.

For more information or to book please contact John Bishop on 07904 036334 or by email at: john.bishop760@btinternet.com (after 6pm)

Parking

The Memorial Stadium has limited parking. There may be street parking available in the roads close to the stadium, ensuring you adhere to local road signs.

We would encourage all supporters travelling to the ground to use public transport wherever possible.

The Club has 30 disabled bays which are currently fully booked by home season ticket holders. If you wish to be added to the waiting list please contact the Club. The Club provides a handful of parking spaces for our disabled visitors which can be booked via Clare McDonagh (ticketing@bristolrovers.co.uk)

The available numbers vary between matches for both home and away fans depending on anticipated crowd sizes.

With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy - parking on Muller Road is a popular choice as is Gloucester Road although this is often more difficult.

If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road - travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you’ll find another area of roads often used for match day parking. Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominately residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed.
