History of the Cambridge United v Exeter City fixture

Exeter City face a trip to Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Grecians will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 12 and win only 4 of the 23 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a Conference match.
