Southampton will look to bounce back from opening day defeat against Cardiff, whilst Exeter will also look to get their campaign off to winning ways following their 1-1 draw with Darlington.

Vital Quotes:

The official Exeter Citywebsite have found confidence in saying that there could be a major upset on the cards in this first round encounter. All seems to be quiet on the Saints front, with only David McGoldrick offering some felings. He told saintsfc.co.uk 'The boys were a bit down afterwars (the Cardiff Game) but we will be upbeat for the Exeter game because we can go far in the cup'. And who's to say he is wrong. A competition when the so called 'big guns' dont play their strongest team is definately winnable.

Exeter City Team News:

Former Saint Paul Tisdale elected to only use 11 players on Saturday with only one new signing - Marcus Stewart - being on show. Expect the same line up as Exeter put on a good show against Darlington

Player to watch: Marcus Stewart

Been there, done that, got the proverbial t-shirt.

Southampton Team News:

Michael Svensson's knee was reported to be quite sore after the game, so may be rested for the league game on Saturday. Expect the team to be much the same, with perhaps Dyer playing more time. Stern John available again after suspension.

Player to watch: David McGoldrick

Seems to be a buzz about the lad at the minute.
