City manager says Grecians have "nothing to lose" in cup tie against QPR

Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale has expressed excitement ahead of tonight's Capital One Cup first round tie against Queens Park Rangers.

The Grecians have arguably been dealt the toughest hand available, as visitors QPR are the only club that were playing Premier League football last season to be in the first round draw. But for Tis, all the pressure lies with the Hoops while his team can try to cause a cup upset – like they almost did against Ipswich and Crystal Palace in recent years.

Exeter City Chief Executive Julian Tagg has given his thanks to Swansea City for allowing the Grecians to keep all the gate receipts from the upcoming friendly fixture at the Park on Sunday – and is urging fans to come along to enjoy the match and help the club financially.
