Stanley v Exeter

19 August 2016

The Reds return home tomorrow as their League Two campaign continues.

Exeter City make the long trip north to the Wham Stadium.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fa"]After bouncing back from a first league defeat in midweek with a hard earned point at Wycombe attention now returns to the Wham Stadium for Stanley.

The game against Exeter is the first of a run of four home matches in three different competitions.

With that run of fixtures coming up the Reds will be out to set off with three points against the Grecians.

[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34eb"]It's won one, drawn one and lost one so far in the league for the Reds.

They opened the season with a 3-2 win over Doncaster but the second League Two outing brought a 2-0 defeat at Barnet.

On Tuesday night the set was completed with a 1-1 draw at Wycombe. The only other game so far was the penalty shoot out victory over Bradford in the EFL Cup.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]

Team News

Terry Gornell will miss out again after being diagnosed with a groin problem that could keep him out for a few weeks.

John Coleman's squad suffered a couple of more minor injuries at Adams Park in midweek with those suffering hoping to be fit.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Opposition" tab_id="1470412818546-8d7f7dab-f030"]Exeter City have endured a tough start to the new season and find themselves as the only side in League Two with no points from the opening three matches.

The Grecians will be keen to change that with a win from their trip to the Wham Stadium.

Under the guidance of the experienced Paul Tisdale they've seen personnel changes over the summer after a 14th placed finish last season.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Manager" tab_id="1470412819079-79ad13b3-86a8"]Tisdale is in his 11th campaign as Exeter City boss, making him the longest-serving manager in the Football League.

He succeeded Alex Inglethorpe as manager in 2006 after leaving Team Bath. He took the Grecians from the Conference to League One but, due to budgetary constraints, has had to be shrewd in the transfer market.

Since he took over at City, the club has had one of the highest percentages of its Academy youngsters playing in its first team in the Football League, with the likes of Matt Grimes, Tom Nichols, Jordan Moore-Taylor and Jordan Tillson all regularly representing the first team in recent years[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]
