With the season reaching its climax several other clubs have now have had their fate sealed and will join the Grecians in English football`s third tier next season.

Preston`s defeat at home to Cardiff has seen then confirmed as the first side to be relegated from The Champioship. The last time City met Preston was in the 1995/96 season in the old Division 3.

Chesterfield and Bury have both guaranteed promotion from League Two.

It will be the first time that City play at Chesterfield`s new B2net stadium.

Bury will be familiar opposition to Paul Tisdale`s side. The shakers dumped the Grecians out of this season`s FA Cup at the first round stage. Two years ago the two clubs were in direct competition with each other for promotion from League Two, Bury missed out on that occasion.
