Exeter in fear of 'formidable' Town

Last updated : 02 April 2004 By Matthew Gamble
Speaking to the Exeter Express and Echo, Dolan said: 'We know that we are playing formidable opponents with a formidable manager and a formidable crowd behind them'.

Despite the praise, it will be a tricky game for Town with the visitors sitting one place above them in the play-off picture - the Grecians have won their last three games, two of them away from home.

Despite Town only conceding ten goals at home this season, Exeter defender Scott Hiley reckons the Shrews will be worried: 'We aren't at all fearful of going to Shrewsbury. In fact, they should be more fearful of us', he said.

He also claimed that Shrewsbury have less heart than tomorrrow's visitors. This belief is sure to be quashed after Jimmy Quinn called on fans to intimidate their visitors when they turn out tomorrow.

Quinn said: 'We need our fans to make as much noise as they possibly can, if anything there's less pressure on Exeter so its up to us to put them under pressure'.

Injured trio Sam Aiston, Jamie Tolley and Dave Edwards should return to the squad, with Dave Ridler slooting back in at centre-half after flu. Aiston will probably be on the bench after missing five games through injury and suspension.

The Shrews wil be hoping for a repeat of the victory at St James's Park in November, and the return of injured stars will give them more of a chance.
