Exeter City’s friendly against Cardiff City this evening will be unaffected by the fire at St Sidwell Street, Exeter.

There are plenty alternative routes to St James Park should the roundabout off St Sidwell Street stay closed this evening. We would urge fans travelling to the game to keep up to date with the traffic information given out by police and the club and give themselves extra time to get to the ground if necessary.
