This is a big game for Exeter City and excitement is running high, but the club says it isn't anticipating any problems - a promise echoed by Liverpool fans on social media.

Every week at Exeter City FC fans mix freely and enjoy the friendly rivalry that makes football and especially the FA Cup the exciting spectacle that captivates so many.

Liverpool fans are renowned for their fervent but always sportsmanlike support and will be welcomed not only by a progressive highly professional football unit but also by a city well versed as generous hosts.”

With a sell out crowd all away coaches will be met and escorted by Police.

It is a great community event for the City of Exeter and Exeter Football Club to host such a game.

The police will have resources on duty to assist with the night time economy and deal with any anti-social behaviour should it occur."
