PREVIEW: Exeter City v Milwall

Exeter City return to St. James Park for the first time in three weeks, where they will face South Londoners Milwall.

The Grecians are currently on a five match unbeaten run, and the last two away performances in particular will have garnered great optimism among the City faithful.

Milwall will be looking to bounce back after Saturday`s shock home defeat to Wycombe. However, Kenny Jackett`s side have only once on the road this season, and that was at Stockport who have already lost six games at home.

Exeter City Team News:

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale may opt to start with an unchanged side for the third game in succession. Tisdale seems to have found a settled frontline of Barry Corr and Stuart Fleetwood, but late goals for both Adam Stansfield and Richard Logan will give the Grecians supremo plenty to think about.

Player to watch: Ryan Harley

Can he score a third free-kick in successive matches? Much more than that, Harley is capable of dictating the midfield.

Milwall Team News:

Injured Gary Alexander won`t be making a return to St. James Park. Alexander`s goals helped the Grecians remain in the Football League when he was on loan from West Ham a decade ago. Fellow striker Neil Harris will also miss the match with a back injury.

Defender Tony Craig is also out, while James Henry remains a doubt.


Player to watch: James Henry

If fit, he will pose a threat to the Grecians backline
