The Opposition View: Exeter City

Is it safe to say that you're happy with how your season has gone so far?

Yes very happy so far although I am not convinced about our home form, but we will have to see if we can maintain our away form (taken 12 points from a possible 21 and unbeaten on the road since August.)

Who have been your key players this season and why?

For me, David Wheeler has given us a different way of attacking, Artur Krysiak in goal has seemed a lot better this season and also big Pat Baldwin who doesn't really get the credit he deserves in defence.

What are the biggest weaknesses in your team?

We struggle against quick wingers because we don't really have the legs at the back to contain them.

Which players in the Pompey squad give you cause for concern?

For me, it would be Patrick Agyemang and Jed Wallace. (Ed: Seems to be a recurring theme here!)

What kind of football do Exeter play? 

We generally knock the ball around and sometimes we can really take the piss out of teams but there is not normally an end product. We will play our usual away game where we will keep it tight and in the second half there might even be a change of formation and we will break very quickly in an attempt to catch you out.

What kind of match are you expecting at Fratton Park on Saturday?

It should be a tight match but this is the type of game that we are strong in (Won most games by the odd goal apart from thrashing Scunthorpe 4-0 on their own patch not long back).

Many fans have criticised League Two for being of poor quality this season. What's your view on it?

I am not so sure, I think a lot of fans say that to hide the fact that their side is not the best and if you look at the squads Chesterfield, Fleetwood and Pompey have I think that it is strong as any other season.

Predict the outcome of the game.

I will go for a 2-1 win for us.
