One to watch 

Midfielder, Randell Williams.

The 23 year old has been a constant threat for Exeter in the last couple of seasons and his versatility has seen him play as both a winger and a wing back.

Starting his career at Crystal Palace and then Watford, Williams got his first taste of league football with two loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers. However, it was with the Grecians that he first found his form having joined them in 2019.

Last season was a real purple patch for the wide man as he played 46 games, assisting 17 times and scoring five goals.

So far this season he has netted three times and his pace will provide an attacking option for Exeter no doubt on Saturday.
