Matt Oakley to Retire

The 39-year-old midfielder has had a long and distinguished …

Next Up: Exeter City vs Carlisle United – Play off 2nd leg

Next Up: Exeter City vs Carlisle United – Play off 2nd leg

The second leg of the League Two Playoff semi-final is all-square after a pulsating first leg ended 3-3, although things may have been so different had the linesman understood the offside law in wrongly disallowing two City goals. There’s no use crying over spilt milk, however, and City will hope to register a win to book their place at Wembley. …

Next Up: Carlisle vs Exeter – Play Off Semi-final 1st leg

With the regular season over, City are in that rare position of their season extending hopefully to the end of May, and face another two matches against the side who beat them on the final day. Paul Tisdale has been typically coy about his selection for Sunday’s match, but there are hints that one or two of those who have …

With the euphoria surrounding City’s qualification for the playoffs still resonating, Paul Tisdale has been very quick to try to keep his players’ feet on the ground ahead of what is still, for the division and City’s opponents at least, a vital final fixture of the regular season. Tisdale knows that confidence plays a huge part in performance, and thus …

Yet another late show against Morecambe secured a vital three points for City and ensured that one win from the final two matches will secure, subject to a most unrealistic scoreline, an extension to the season for Paul Tisdale’s side. Reuben Reid picked up a knock having come off the bench to score the decisive second goal and will be …

The Easter weekend proved a mixed bag for City – a win over Barnet seemed to put some daylight between the Grecians and the jagged line marking the playoffs, only for defeat at Cambridge on Monday, coupled with Blackpool’s late win at Doncaster, to throw the race wide open again. One of the brightest spots on an otherwise disappointing afternoon …

Next Up: Mansfield Town vs Exeter City

A 3-3 draw at home to a bottom half side may not feel like a victory, but considering City were 0-3 down after 87 minutes there was something of a feeling of euphoria when Reuben Reid smashed home the equaliser, and therefore the mood in the City camp is likely to be buoyant heading in to a trip to Nottinghamshire …

A hard-earned draw away to fellow promotion chasers Luton sees City return home for a local derby in decent spirit. Jordan Moore-Taylor is expected to be fit for Saturday having been taken off early at Luton with a head injury – indeed Paul Tisdale suggested the only reason he was substituted was that it would have meant City playing for …

City got their promotion push back on track with a convincing 3-0 win against relegation threatened Cheltenham on Tuesday night, a result that kept Paul Tisdale’s side in the playoff places and, combined with some helpful results elsewhere, means City could go fourth on Saturday if they manage to win on their travels against another side in the playoff zone. …

Those seven straight victories have faded into memory now, and the recent poor form, culminating in a soporific 2-0 home reverse to struggling Accrington on Saturday, has seen City clinging on to the playoff places only by dint of others in the mix also failing to record victories. Paul Tisdale rung the changes on Saturday in a bid to freshen …

After a defeat that perhaps hung on a controversial thirty second passage of play at Hartlepool last weekend, City return home looking to extend their unbeaten home run to nine games with the visit of another side battling near the foot of the table. Christy Pym was again missing from the side last week as he looks to get over …

Having overcome the recent spate of draws with a win at Crawley on Tuesday night, City will be in buoyant mood heading into their longest away trip of the season on Saturday. Christy Pym missed the Crawley match having tweaked his groin against Blackpool, and even if he’s fit to return the impressive display from Bobby Olejnik on Tuesday may …
