The Cods come into this game off the back of a 2-2 drew against Manchester United Under-21s in the Papa Johns Trophy. Scott Brown's side did get the extra point after winning 5-4 on penalties, but it wasn't enough to gain qualification to the next round of the competiton.
Town have only lost two in their last eleven league games now. They will be looking to put things right in the league after a narrow 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury last Saturday. In the games against the Salops, it was a first half goal from Tom Bayliss that wasd the difference at Highbury.
Fleetwood's last win on the road came in their 1-0 victory at Peterborough United. Josh Vela scored a long-range effort that evening and a performance and result like that this weekend will surely send the travelling fans home happy after a 12 hour round trip.
Exeter City have started the season in good form, sitting 12th after the thirteen games they have played so far. Their last win game in a 2-0 victory over Barnsley, but they have struggledi in their last three with two defeats in the league, and lately a defeat in their Papa Johns Trophy match against Forest Green Rovers - who are Town's opponents on Tuesday 25 Ocotober.
In their last league match, Exeter lost 4-2 at home to Oxford United. Goals from Cameron Brannagan, Sam Long and Kyle Joseph saw off two from Jevani Brown and Sonny Cox at St. James Park.
The one to watch for Exeter this weekend is forward, Jevani Brown. The 28-year-old forward has netted 8 goals in 16 matches played thus far in all competitions. Brown began his career at Stamford and has recently played for Colchester and Forest Green Rovers.
WHAT THE MANAGER HAD TO SAY ON EXETER CITY
“It’s going to be hard as they’ve made a lot of changes against Forest Green in the week, they’ve got Kevin in temporary charge as well so we aren’t 100% sure how they’re going to play, but we will see how it is. It’s a tight league, you can win two and be up there or lose two and be right down there; it’s about us worrying about our own form, not anyone else’s, and taking each game at a time.
“You always want to win every game that you go into, and I believe that we can do so. We’ve had some good results away from home recently so, for us, we are in a good place in terms of travelling away. We have to make sure we look at our home form, we didn’t score in the two games leading up to the Man United one, but we scored two against them so that was good for us.
“To get that buzz around the place because the lads are scoring goals, it gives you a little bit of momentum as you go into the next game. Everything is still a work in progress; you can’t install a winning mentality in people overnight and it’s not just about installing it, it’s about everyone trusting each other and having that belief in themselves.”
