Exeter City prepare to entertain Forest Green Rovers at St James' Park on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the Grecians have won one and drawn one.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at St James' Park was just last season, in December 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Conference match.
