with nearly 4200 tickets sold already looking like gonna be a big gate . cant see eney changes . they have lost one of the most creative midfilders they got and have a few other injuries to . still gonna be hard . but if we play eneything like we did last sat who knows . we have shown we can beat the best . Lincoln . so i think a hard 2-1 might be right with lord nors and super mullin getting them 6500-7500 in attendance

This will be a much tougher game than Crawley and I am not totally convinced that the same formula will work. Exeter started the season well under new management, but have stumbled a bit in recent weeks and are missing a key man in Boateng as AM suggests. Their last visit to PP saw them win in the ill fated Rob Edwards era.

Blue Scouse's turn to have a clashing fixture this weekend. While Exeter will bring significantly more than Crawley, enough to add a couple of hundred to the attendance and advance sales suggest a better home turnout, it would be a surprise to get much over 6k. A tight game I'd expect to get something from, but not confident we'll take all the points.

positive is the word . we have to keep looking forward we have two in form forwards . ( ok mullin has got 4 goals in 8 games ) but at last he is getting them .and working harder . so with others now starting to get some and we have a very good home record . lets be positive .

Mullins goals per minute is actually better than Norwood's based on his limited game time!

I agree with boz as Exeter seem a step up from crawley so may not be so gung-ho but with not expecting last week,s changes who knows ? would love a win but won,t be unhappy with a draw

OK, AM. How about a 3-0 win. Same team. Goals from Nors, Paul and Connor.

This will be a tough game against a team who will be in contention for promotion, will be a tight game I am going for a draw 1 1 with a crowd just under 6k

As Boz has commented, Exeter are missing some key players, particularly in midfield. However, they have some of the best players in the division and can still call on Dean Moxey, Nicky Law and Jayden Stockley, among others. I would guess this will be our toughest game since Lincoln.

It is difficult to guess how we will set up tactically. I would be surprised if Cole and the 4231 are dropped, but Micky is arguably the most tactically astute manager we have ever had so we might be surprised. I still think we will probably go with basically the same shape, but perhaps as a slightly more defensive 451.

A victory would take us to the fringes of the automatic promotion places but a draw would not be a disaster, with some winnable games to follow. I agree that the crowd will be about 6,000, with 300 or so from Devon.

Not the side I’d have picked, but there again wouldn’t have gone for that line-up/formation which comfortably saw off Crawley.

Back to only 6 subs. Williams injured or not home-grown after all?

I wondered that - MM says he is home grown but I never saw why he said that. He is under contract till January so as far as I understand it his situation is no different from any other contracted player? TBH bit disappointed he seems not to be pushing for a start - thought he would have been by now...
