After a heated meeting between the two sides in November there will be little love lost between these sides on a Valentines day afternoon at St James Park.

Vital Quotes:

Exeter City Team News:

Rob Edwards will miss the match after picking up a one-match ban for 5 yellow cards this season while Craig McAllister will hope his goal as a substitute on Tuesday night could help him push for a starting place.

Player to watch: Paul Jones

Paul Jones - After saving a penalty in the reverse fixture Jones will be looking to continue in a similar vein today and he will be hoping for 90 minutes as easy as he had on Tuesday night.

Aldershot Team News:

Defender Chris Blackburn will be unavailable while Rob Elvins has joined Woking on loan.

Player to watch: Nikki Bull

Nikki Bull - Continuing the keeper theme for this preview, Nikki Bull will be keen to repeat his heroics of last season where he helped the Shots clinch the title at St James Park with a unforgettable late save from Steve Basham. But the shot-stopper has missed the last five matches and injury may rob Bull of a return to the scene of their title celebrations.
