We have already published 3 Things We Need To Do To Beat Exeter City, but we have decided to make it 6 by publishing 3 more things!

1. Press, press and press again. Exeter try to play a passing game (i.e. try to make limited lower division players do things they are not capable of), so give them no space at all on the ball. Players panic in those situations and make mistakes.

2. Keep Jayden Stockley quiet. Exeter’s record signing has 13 league goals and 6 assists from 34 games and averages a goal every 195 minutes. Stockley is the main reason why departed strikers Ollie Watkins and Reuben Reid have not been missed.

3. Make the set pieces work this week. Exeter appear to have a relatively short defence (Storey 6’1″, Brown 6’0″, Sweeney 6’0″, Moxey 5’9″ Wilson 5’8″, and Woodman 5’7″) so an aerial bombardment would be in order from Palmer (6’4″), Rhead (6’3″), Bostwick (6’3″), Waterfall (6’1″), Wharton (6’0″), and Green (6’0″). Sam Habergham stepped up to the mark on Good Friday last year in spectacular fashion – will this Easter see him play another pivotal role?
