Match preview: Exeter City vs Stags

30 March 2019

Stags make the long trip down to Exeter on Saturday for our latest clash in Sky Bet League Two (3pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the match..

Stags will be without long-term absentees Bobby Olejnik and Hayden White for the clash.

Forwards Craig Davies, Jordan Graham and Danny Rose will also be absent.

For the Grecians, Ryan Bowman is suspended and Luke Croll is a doubt for the fixture.

The Stags will be looking to regain form on Saturday, having recorded a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to Crewe last time out.

Exeter have been in good form of late, winning their last two matches against Notts County and Colchester.

STAGS’ LAST FIVE GAMES: 1W | 2D | 2L

EXETER’S LAST FIVE GAMES: 2W | 1D | 2L

We last faced the Grecians back in September of last year at One Call Stadium, a game that the visitors won by a narrow 2-1 scoreline. This would be the Stags’ only loss in Sky Bet League Two before the turn of the New Year this season.

The referee for Saturday’s game will be Ben Toner, assisted by Andrew Laver and Paul Lister. The fourth official will be Scott Jackson.

Mr. Toner last took charge of a Stags’ fixture in our resounding 3-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers at One Call Stadium in January.

The club has received an initial allocation of 182 seated tickets and 200 terrace tickets.

There is no on-site parking at St James Park, whilst residential streets around the ground are reserved for permit holders only. However, there are a few car parks near the ground. There is the King William Street car park (NCP), and there are car parks just off Western Way on Parr Street, Belmont and Belgrave Road. There is also the Bampfylde Street car park and the Triangle car park (accessed from Clifton Road). These are all about five to ten minutes' walk from the ground.

There is a social club at the ground itself, which allows away supporters. Outside the Ivor Doble Stand, there is a small FanZone which away fans can use. It has a mixture of eating and drinking outlets, plus alcohol can be purchased. The nearest pubs to the ground are the St Anne's Well on Well Street, and about a ten minute walk away on Stoke Hill is the Stoke Arms. Kiosks serve the usual food and drink within the ground.
