MATCH PREVIEW: EXETER CITY

31 August 2023

AFTER the 1-1 draw against Bolton, the Brewers are looking to secure more home points as Exeter City visit the Pirelli Stadium.

This Sky Bet League One game takes place on Saturday (September 2) with a 3pm kick off.

The visitors are second in the table after securing 10 points from their opening five games, winning three, drawing one and losing one.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Brewers and Exeter City were promotion rivals in the Conference before both clubs achieved promotion to the Football League. The Grecians were a year ahead of Albion in achieving promotion, which came through the play offs in 2007-2008. In the final, Exeter beat Cambridge, who overcame Albion in the semi-finals. The 1-0 success was watched by 42,511 fans.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The two clubs have met eight times since 2012 with Albion proving somewhat of a bogey side to Exeter. The Brewers have won five and drawn two of the games with our only defeat coming on September 1 2012, when Exeter won a League Two game 3-0.

FAMILY ZONE

Our regular Family Zone will be in operation for this game, now starting two hours before kick-off and it is open to home and away supporters.

Come and try out football, archery, inflatable fun, colouring and much more on the 3G pitch and inside the community building.

There is plenty more information for young fans on the club website such as the history of the club, how to become a mascot and fun things to do such as our autograph and colouring sheets which you can download now - click here to visit our Family Section!

FOOD & DRINK

We have a wide range of food and drink inside the ground - including jacket potatoes, hot dogs, burgers, chips and our famous faggots and peas. By popular demand Madri beer will be available in all home bars.
