Despite heavy rain in the week, Exeter City's League Two clash with Accrington Stanley is certain to go ahead.

City go into the game having lost four games at home this season, and, despite a moderately pleasing return of four points from four games, will be viewing this as a must-win fixture.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Tisdale told the Express & Echo: 'I expect a very good game and it is more about us than them.'

'I haven't seem them play before but I have had a couple of reports.

'We haven't quite found our winning formula yet this season and that is what the focus is on more than worrying about Accrington.

'We will get better and better and we have just got to keep the faith. Passing and creative football comes off the back of confidence and we must make sure we keep that.

'We want to win every game we play and it is very important that we get what we deserve.

'If we had only deserved four points so far then we would have a different attitude, but we deserve more than that.'

Exeter City Team News:

With left back George Friend sold to Wolves, Dean Moxey will take his place at left back.

Craig McAllister will be available for the last time before a three match ban courtesy of a sending-off in a reserve game at Plymouth.

Player to watch: Dean Moxey

The lad's got a big big job to do filling George's boots.

Accrington Stanley Team News:

Accrington will be without injured keeper Ian Dunbavin.
