Player to watch - Marcus Stewart: A lot rests on the shoulders of the veteran striker, after Exeter lost their best two players from last season's promotion campaign in Dean Moxey and Matt Gill. Despite his advancing years, Stewart is now 36, the wily frontman still poses a major goal threat for the Grecians and knows his way around League One.

Last league meeting: Exeter City 1, Norwich City 1 (15 August, 2009) This match was a definite non-event, giving fans still in a state of shock following the sacking of Bryan Gunn 24 hours earlier. Exeter were guilty of ball watching when they cleared Hoolahan's corner straight back to him. The midfielder accepted the invitation to pick his spot and found the head of Jens Berthel Askou, who nodded home from six yards. On the hour mark substitute Richard Logan got his first touch, poorly marked as he headed home Marcus Stewart's cross from the right - and it was all square.

City connection: Troy Archibald-Henville played 19 games on loan at Exeter from Spurs - having failed to kick a ball in anger during a season-long spell which City cut short.
