History of the Morecambe v Exeter City fixture

Exeter City face a trip to Morecambe at Christie Park on Saturday afternoon, and will hope to continue their unbeaten record at the ground. Out of their two previous meetings, the Grecians have won one, and drawn the other.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2005, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Conference match.
