Exeter City will be looking to secure a third successive victory when they play host to Derby County at St James Park for Tuesday’s League One match.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be looking to return to winning ways after being held to a draw by Shrewsbury Town at the weekend.
Exeter will enter Tuesday’s contest in a confident mood after winning four of their previous five matches, including their last two games against Peterborough United and Wigan Athletic.
Mo Eisa scored his first goal for the club to give Exeter a 10th-minute lead in Saturday’s away encounter with Wigan, before Jack Aitchison doubled his side’s advantage in the second half.
Although Charlie Kelman pulled one back for the Latics, Exeter saw out the remainder of the match to record a third successive away victory.
As a result of their fine run of form, Exeter have moved up to 13th position in the League One standings, establishing a sizeable eight-point advantage over the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Derby experienced a frustrating encounter on Saturday as they gave up a narrow lead to draw 1-1 with Shrewsbury Town at Pride Park.
The Rams looked set to secure a third successive victory when Max Bird opened the scoring in the 54th minute, but a late Aaron Pierre effort eventually denied Derby all three points.
Despite missing out on a victory at the weekend, Paul Warne’s side remain in second position in the league standings with a narrow one-point gap to third-placed Bolton Wanderers.
Derby will now turn their attention to Tuesday’s match, where they will be looking to produce another strong defensive performance, having kept clean sheets in five of their last eight away league matches.
