Shop news:

Take advantage of our replica shirt and kids kits sale - we are open from 12-3pm and then 15 minutes after the final whistle.

Team news:

After limping off early in last weekend’s game against Carlisle, Charlie Lee is a doubt for tomorrow’s fixture with more news expected over the next few days.

We have good news in that Chris Whelpdale, Patrick Hoban, Ben Kennedy, Dean Wells and Jerome Okimo have all made a return to either light or partial training this week and at the very earliest, could be available tomorrow. A more likely return for all five players would be within the next few weeks though as they get back to full fitness.

David McAllister will also soon be ready to return to first team action after having a productive week at St George’s Park.

The story so far…

After going unbeaten throughout January, Exeter are now without a win in February after three defeats and one draw in their last four games has seen the Grecians play-off push somewhat falter.

A 4-1 defeat at home to Oxford on Tuesday night left manager Paul Tisdale describing the performance as “dismal”.

“There are no real excuses for such a dismal performance; it was so poor in so many areas it’s hard to know where to start. I don't want to pick on things in isolation, but it was dreadfully poor.”

However, during the build-up to tomorrow’s game, Tisdale believes he can get his side going again.

“I’ve been here a few times before, where we've had some really poor performances; the best way out of it is to get the dynamic right to get the players back to their best. We have to move forward and not dwell on the details of the Oxford defeat, because there were far too many to contend with.”

Head to Head: 

Overall, our head to head record against the Grecians is dead even with five wins, five defeats and seven draws between the two sides.

We have drawn four of our last five games against each other with our last defeat coming in April 2008 – a 1-0 home defeat in the Conference

Our last meeting:

Boro twice came back from behind to snatch a point at the death back in October for this dramatic televised fixture. Watch the highlights below:
