▶️ iFollow: Watch Ian Holloway's Pre Exeter Press Conference

The Town boss ahead of Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash

30 November 2020

Listen to the pre match thoughts of Town boss Ian Holloway on freeview. 

On the injury front, Ollie says that Max Wright is a doubt for Tuesday night, but he has confirmed that Mattie Pollock is fit again and will come back into his squad. 

There’s also some good news on James Hanson.  

Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: “Max Wright’s got a sore hamstring. I’d love to be able to say ‘same team, same subs’ for once - but Max might not be fit.

“I’ve also got Mattie Pollock and Kyle Bennett coming back, so I could add those two in.

“With five subs I might be able to start Max even though he’s a bit wobbly - and if there’s a problem bring him off. So that will help.

“What I want – and I have told them all – give me the result I want, give me the performance I want, and you will stay in the team.”

Tuesday’s game marks the start of a hectic fixture schedule for the Town boss which will see the Mariners play Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday . . .

Ollie added: “It makes it difficult. You are either getting over the last match or getting ready for the next one, there is very little time for preparation for anything else – units of play, your back line your middle line, your front line – you can’t really do the bits you want to do. I’m trying to do it in a different way than ever before.

“Some of the stuff last Tuesday night was very exciting, we looked like we had pace and we could move. Hopefully, we can move forward from that.

“We are also going to have to get better at letting the opposition have the ball and us feeling confident about winning it back - and we have been working very hard on that with the time we have had.

“Hopefully we will see that in our next game, which will be a real tough one for us, but one we are looking forward to.”
