Tomorrow, we head to St James Park to face Exeter City in Sky Bet League Two. Both of our previous visits to St James Park have ended 1-0. In 2016/17 we won 1-0 thanks to a Tom Owen-Evans left footed strike and in 2017/18 County were on the end of a 1-0 defeat.
Just like when we visited last year, the Grecians are sitting top of the league. Two League wins out of two for new manager Matt Taylor have made them early league leaders.
All tickets for this match are now sold out. Please note, Exeter City have received dispensation from the EFL to allocate 350 tickets to away fans due to ongoing renovations at their ground. All tickets for away supporters are seated.
The weather looks good for the game, but supporters are reminded to check the weather forecast ahead of time and bring appropriate clothing.
You will find most of the travel information you need in the away fans guide https://www.exetercityfc.co.uk/fans/away-fans-guide/. However, some key parking and direction information is at the bottom of this article.
Exeter City open a Family Zone 90 minutes before kick off. Young County supporters are invited to join Young Exeter supporters here pre-match.
The Family Zone will provide a safe, comfortable environment for families to enjoy pre-match entertainment, such as a large screen TVs, video game consoles and table football, as well as the option to enjoy refreshments from the zone’s very own kiosk.
NEED ASSISTANCE ON THE DAY?
Supporters who need assistance will find Exeter's Supporter Ambassadors dotted outside the Stadium.

TRAVEL BY TRAIN
For supporters travelling by train there are several easy services up to 11:44 departure from Newport (but involves a change) - any later services may not make kick off.
At Exeter St Davids there is a 4 minute train service direct to the ground for those who don’t fancy the walk. Alternatively buses or a taxi are the best option (rank outside the station) but a brisk walk would be possible.
Return services are frequent from Exeter St David’s with 17.24 the first realistic service back to Newport.
