Grecians looking to pick off Cherries

Grecians looking to pick off Cherries

Exeter City`s bid to rectify their abysmal recent home form resumes tonight when high-flying Bournemouth visit the Park.

The Grecians are currently on a run of five home matches without a win, a sequence that has included four defeats.

Saturday`s uninspiring 3-0 reverse at Peterborough leaves City in fifteenth place in the table on 43 points.

Onto tonight, Paul Tisdale once again has a fully fit squad at his disposal.

He could be tempted to make changes though, John O`Flynn and James Dunne will be hoping for recalls after being left out on Saturday.

City are looking to improve on a rather alarming fact that since joining League Once over 18 months ago, they have failed to win any of their 12 midweek fixtures.

If that run is to come to an end tonight then City will have to overcome a Bournemouth side that sit second in the table on a ten match unbeaten streak.

New manger Lee Bradbury is yet to taster defeat since taking over from the departed Eddie Howe.

The Cherries are boosted by the recent return to fitness of midfielder Mark Molesely, he is expected to take his place on the bench tonight as he continues his recovery from a 16 month layoff.

New loan signing Lauri Dalla Valle is pushing for a start in attack after coming off the bench to score on his debut in Bournemouth`s 3-0 victory over Oldham on Saturday.

When the sides met earlier in the season Bournemouth ran out comfortable 3-0 winners. Michael Symes` brace and Mark Pugh`s first half strike were enough to condemn City to another midweek defeat.
