Next Up: Exeter City vs Morecambe

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. …

Next Up: Exeter City vs Cheltenham Town

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 …

Next Up: Exeter City vs Accrington Stanley

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 …

Next Up: Crawley Town v Exeter City

A third successive draw means it is now four games without a win, but snatching a deserved point late on will have boosted City’s confidence going into another busy week with two away trips on the horizon. The big news from Saturday in terms of personnel was the broken ankle suffered by Robbie Simpson, meaning he will be ruled out …

Next Up: Exeter City vs Blackpool

Depending on your frame of mind, City have suffered one defeat in 15 matches or have failed to win their last three. Both are true, of course, but City have cause to remain optimistic going into Saturday’s home fixture against one of the more basket case clubs (in a season where there appear to be several of them). Christy Pym …

Ryan Swan Signs for Exeter

Ryan Swan Signs for Exeter

Exeter City have announced that they have signed striker Ryan Swan on a deal that will keep him at St James park until the end of the season. There has been much speculation about whether he was going to sign, after an Irish newspaper reported that he’d been on trial in November, and then that he was at St James …

For the second time this season City have dropped points by conceding twice after the fourth official has done his business with the numbers board, and what should have been a weekend where City were back to winning ways is instead one where City return home with one point from six. Part of City’s recent revival has been down to …

Next Up: Notts county vs Exeter City

It had to end at some point, but for City’s amazing run to come to an end in a Devon Derby in a scoreline that makes it look like a thumping was hard to take. There is no time, however, for City to dwell upon this misfortune as Paul Tisdale’s side faces a Valentine’s Day trip to a side battling …
