Here We Go...

WE will kick off the 2012-13 npower League 2 season with an away fixture at Southend United on Saturday, August 3.

Our first home league game comes a week later, when Fleetwood Town make the 650-mile round-trip from Lancashire to Home Park.

We end the campaign with a tasty Dockyard Derby away to League 2 title favourites Portsmouth on Saturday, May 3, with our final home game – against Hartlepool – taking place the weekend previously.

We are at home to Bury, who come to Home Park for the first time in 12 seasons, on the weekend before Christmas, Saturday, December 21, and away to Oxford United on Boxing Day, Thursday, December 26.

Our New Year's Day game – on a Wednesday – is the most local of our various derbies: a Westcountry tussle with Torquay United, who we visit on Tuesday, November 26.

We meet Exeter City again at St James' Park again on Saturday, October 5, with the return at Home Park on Tuesday, March 25.

Our only other home midweek evening league match is against new boyos Newport County on Tuesday, October 22.

There are no other midweek matches at Home Park, although we are slated to play AFC Wimbledon on Sunday, December 29 and host them on Easter Bank Holiday, April 21.
