Exeter v York preview

Saturday, September 13

Kick-off: 3pm

Second-placed Exeter will look to maintain their impressive start to the season as they host seventh-place York City.

The Grecians defeated an in-form Oxford United last weekend and will be keen to build on a four-game winning streak that has seen them score 12 goals.

Paul Tisdale has a full squad to choose from and his side are only a single point behind league leaders Gillingham.

York, however, are still buoyant from last year's Blue Square Bet Premier promotion and will be hoping to get something out of the game.

The Minstermen welcome back Patrick McLaughlin (pictured), who missed the draw with Chesterfield whilst on Northern Ireland under-21 duty.

York manager Gary Mills said: "It's good to have Patrick back and it means a tough decision for me and the coaching staff."

Exeter will be hot favourites, knowing that victory could see them top the table, but York defeated Barnet 3-1 when last on their travels and will be looking to stifle the hosts' strong attack.

Mills added: "They'll be playing to go top of the league and we have to make sure that doesn't happen."

It could be a tight affair at St James Park.
