EXETER City fans have been warned that their travel back from Plainmoor on Tuesday night will be disrupted by rail works between Exeter and Paignton.

First Great Western are currently conducting works on the Riviera Line, which runs past Torre and Torquay, the two most popular stations to alight at for Plainmoor.

Work on the line is being conducted between 9pm and 5.30am from Monday to Friday.

It means Grecians will be able to catch a train to the ground, but would be forced to use a rail replacement bus service to get back.

The tie against Torquay will be the first time the two clubs have met in a competitive fixture since Paul Tisdale's side beat the Gulls 4-1 to reach the final of the Conference play-offs in 2009.

Steve Tully is the only survivor in the City side from that game.

Meanwhile, Torquay have two players who played in that match – Barry Nicholson and Lee Mansell.

Kick-off for the game is at 8pm.
