In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Yes - a bit of a quirk of our history; promoted 5 times but only once at SJP:

1964 - @ Workington
1977 - @ Doncaster
1990 - @ SJP
2008 - @ Wembley
2009 - @ Rotherham (Don Valley)
In 1990 it looked like the Grecians were going to clinch promotion at Gillingham, but were foiled by a equaliser near the end of the game at Priestfield.
Terry Cooper was fuming iirc, I had mixed feelings like many others because it meant we could seal promotion the following Tuesday against close rivals Southend in front of a big crowd at SJP.

It seems like yesterday that myself & fellow work colleagues met up in The Golden Lion, Newtown before that game(as we did for every home game)

It would be good to give Phillips a start. After Zanzala's misses on Saturday he should be dropped anyway

Down to 500 spaces as at 7 hours ago so would hope most of those would be gone by Monday evening.

looking at barrows away record and results they don’t score many and don’t concede a lot so it doesn’t suggest a three or four nil victory. Obviously same as the last couple the first goal is massive and hopefully we get it even earlier than we did in the past two. I would love a first half like Bristol rovers or maybe Swindon to blow them out of the water quickly but wouldnt be surprised were it to be either 1-0 or 2-1 with my blood pressure slightly elevated.

Phillips is the forgotton man of Exeter City. After not making the squad last time out I'm not sure Matt would be starting him. More likely I think that Amond will start and Phillips or Nombe come on between 60-70 mins.

There’s something to be said for experience in games like these!

Must be old I remember them all UTC
All of these successes have been in my lifetime and I’ve followed them all but one. I have however only enjoyed 2 of the promotions first hand. My excuses are that I was 1 year old in 1964 and left the country in 2006. I expect to miss the promotion game this time but will be getting up eat 4am to watch the game v Barrow then heading off later that morning to airport to fly back from Sydney for the party v Northampton or if required SJP v PV.
