The side that Exeter’s Matt Taylor should select to take on Forest Green Rovers



Tomorrow afternoon, Exeter City welcome Forest Green Rovers to St James Park in the EFL League Two as both sides look to maintain their good start.

Exeter have 23 points from their opening 12 league games and are sat second in the league table as Matt Taylor continues to help lead the Exeter charge, while Forest Green find themselves one point and one place above Exeter after the same amount of league games.

A home win for Exeter would take the Grecians back to the top of the summit.

Here, we take a look at what side Exeter should play to reclaim top spot in the league again…

Only one change is really expected tomorrow, and that comes in the goalkeeping department with Jonny Maxted coming in for Lewis Ward, who suffered a broken arm late on against Crewe Alexandra. Moving on up into the defence, Jack Sparkes and Randell Williams are expected to stay there to help combat the attacking threat of FGR’s wing-backs and also lure them into some tasty one-on-one battles both attacking wise and defensively. The back three should consist of Dean Moxey, Tom Parkes and Pierce Sweeney as Exeter look for that physical edge over FGR’s strikers.

Moving on up into the midfield area, Archie Collins is expected to play the holding midfield role which he has done so well over his time at Exeter so far, and Grecians skipper Jake Taylor will act as the box-to-box midfielder as he’ll aim to  create and defend while the furthest advanced midfielder Nicky Law will play just off the strike pairing.

The strike pairing is expected to consist of Ryan Bowman and Lee Martin, Bowman’s natural instinct in front of goal and Martin’s ability to create as well as arrive late in the box to attack crosses and get on the end of pull-backs means that FGR will need to watch the front two very closely.
