All you need to know ahead of Friday's match

28 March 2024

Exeter City will be hoping it's a 'Good Friday' as they return to action to face Charlton Athletic on Friday in a 3pm kick-off at a SOLD OUT SJP!

Saturday's clash with Leyton Orient being postponed due to the International break means it's 13 days since City were last in action.

The will be looking to extend the recent good run of form of seven points from three matches, and back-to-back wins as they welcome Charlton to SJP.

Charlton come to the Park re-energised after Nathan Jones took over the hot seat and are on a run of eight matches unbeaten, picking up a solid point against Fleetwood Town last time out. Charlton currently sit in 16th place in EFL Sky Bet League One.

Gary Caldwell's thoughts

Gary Caldwell has praised the City fans ahead of a sell-out crowd at SJP against Charlton Athletic on Good Friday.

Charlton head to Devon unbeaten in eight, but the Grecians have also picked up form having collected seven points from nine before the international break.

"The supporters have been incredible all season through good and bad, and stuck with this team," Gary said.

"To get a full-house on Friday will be a great atmosphere and occasion for the boys. I thought against Burton they were fantastic, they really got behind the team and gave them energy and to see them turn out again, we have to give them something.
