Exeter City host Forest Green Rovers on October 12 aiming to continue their excellent start to the League Two season.

A long unbeaten run saw Exeter’s League Two betting odds to win the title slashed to 6/1 and they will fancy their chances of picking up another three points against Forest Green.

City will undoubtedly be hoping to build on their early season results after what has been a frustrating few years for the club.

The Grecians took an early lead when Dean Moxey converted an Archie Collins cross to the back post after only two minutes but, following a host of missed first half chances, Crewe Alexandra got back into the game second half and equalised through substitute Chuma Anene.

City 1 Grimsby Town 3 - Exeter City fell to their first defeat of the season as some defensive errors and missed chances cost them at home to Grimsby Town.

The Grecians, who were looking to break a club record of 14 league games without loss, started the match brightly but were dealt a blow when the visitors scored from a corner, when Archie Collins was off the pitch injured, and although they started the second half brightly, a costly penalty and swung the match very much in Grimsby’s favour.
