Exeter Preview

22 October 2013

A full guide to tonight's big game

We look ahead to tonight's big home match against Exeter City. 

Team News
United will wait on the fitness of defender Johnny Mullins before naming the side to take on third-placed Exeter tonight. Mullins landed awkwardly while going for a header at Accrington on Saturday and limped off just after half-time. He is rated doubtful, as is striker Deane Smalley who felt a twinge in his knee during the warm-up on Saturday. Chris Wilder said:

The Opposition 

Exeter will be without former Southampton midfielder Matt Oakley who is ruled out until the New Year with an ankle injury but moved quickly to bring in their former player Matt Gill as a replacement. the 32-year old previously spent three years with The Grecians and could go straight into the side to face The U's.

Exeter enjoyed a fine 4-0 win at Scunthorpe on Saturday to lift them above United, but with just one point between the top six teams a win tonight could well leave one of the clubs top of the table.
