All roads lead

It’s an exciting weekend for my locals, Exeter City. A trip to Elland Road is a fascinating and demanding way to kick off the Grecians’ first season in League One after back-to-back promotions. Whereas last term it took a little time to adjust from the Conference to League Two, this season there will be little room to manoeuvre, and ground lost in the opening weeks could be decisive in the long run. Maybe it works in City’s favour that they have been tagged as relegation strugglers. Leeds United, miles from former glory but with big ambitions, will not underestimate them. But few would put money on anything other than a clear Leeds win. Let’s hope the Grecians can pull off more surprises this year, sneaking past the guard of the big boys.
