'Tonight is a massive game and it's one we need to win, but I think every game comes under that category.

'As big as derby games are - and they are - every game is so important.

'We were pretty poor on Saturday, but the couple of games before that were exciting football matches and really good performances from us.

'I just want to get the team back to playing that way.

'I hope the fans come out and support us, that it's a good game of football and we win it.'

City striker Jamie Cureton can`t wait for his first taste of Devon Derby action, he told exetercityfc.co.uk
