City ready for Devon derby clash

City ready for Devon derby clash

A full seventeen days since their last fixture Exeter City are back in action this weekend against arch rivals Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

Paul Tisdale has fully fit squad to pick from, which means that Daniel Nardiello who scored the winner against Plymouth in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy last month will probably have to settle for a place on the bench.

The Grecians last league fixture was at Oldham where three late goals secured a dramatic draw for City.

Argyle will be sweating on the fitness of captain Carl Fletcher who is an injury doubt. Rory Paterson is likely to partner Bradley Wright-Philips in attack following Rory Fallon`s departure to Ipswich.

Argyle look set for comfortably their highest attendance of the season which is in stark contrast to their last home fixture where a season low of less than 5,000 were in attendance to see their 2-1 triumph over Dagenham & Redbridge.

This is the first time in eight years that Devon`s top two clubs have met in a League fixture.

The last time the clubs met was November 2010 in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy where City ran out 2-1 winners at Home Park.
