First time: Moses Russell’s penalty gave us a 1-1 draw on Monday, December 27, 1920. This came two days after the clubs had played out a Christmas Day goalless draw at Home Park. The 1-1 draw was the first of nine so far in this fixture at St James Park.

Last time: Graham Carey and on-loan Bristol City striker Arnold Garita gave Derek Adams’s Pilgrims bragging rights in a 2-0 lunchtime win on Saturday, September 17, 2016.

Biggest win: Bob Jack’s team won 4-0 on Boxing Day, 1923. Percy Cherrett (2), Patsy Corcoran and Bob Preston were our scorers as we completed the double over City, having beaten them 4-0 at Home Park 24 hours earlier. Cherrett’s brace in the St James Park match was his fifth in consecutive games, a club record which stands to this day.

Heaviest defeat: The Green Army suffered a miserable Christmas Day in 1925 as Argyle lost 0-4 at City.

Most goals in a single game: Six in a 2-4 defeat on Saturday, February 8, 1958. Harry Penk and Jimmy Gauld scored for Jack Rowley’s team.

Further interesting facts: Argyle once went 13 matches and over 65 years between EFL away wins at Exeter. That run started after a 2-1 win for Bob Jack’s team on October 27th, 1928 and didn’t end until Peter Shilton’s men won 3-2 on March 2nd, 1994. In between, we drew six times and lost seven.

In contrast, our last 12 EFL visits to City have yielded five wins, four draws and only three defeats. We have scored 19 and conceded just 15 in the process. Surprisingly, we have never won 1-0 in an EFL match at St James Park.
