Exeter City had the better of the game at St James Park but ultimately couldn’t force a way through a resolute Cheltenham Town defence as the game ended goalless on Saturday afternoon.

Grecians’ boss Matt Taylor made two changes to the side that started in the FA Cup match last weekend in Cambridge, as Craig Woodman and Tom Parkes were replaced by Dean Moxey, who captained the side, and Jack Sparkes.

A last-minute goal from Sam Smith denied Exeter a victory at The Abbey in the first round of the FA Cup away at Cambridge United.

The result means Exeter will play Cambridge in a replay at St James Park in order to get through to the second round.

Exeter City manager Matt Taylor made three changes to the side that fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Bradford last Saturday, as Matt Jay, Nigel Atangana and Alex Fisher replaced Lee Martin and Nicky Law, while Jake Taylor dropped out due to suspension.

Exeter City slipped to their third away defeat on the spin in an action-packed game at Bradford City.

The Grecians were reduced to nine men in the 2-0 loss, with both Jake Taylor and Tom Parkes seeing red, while the hosts also had a man sent-off, Callum Cooke, for two bookable offences.

That ill-discipline will have been an annoyance to manager Matt Taylor as well as some sloppy defending that saw them fail to deal with routine balls into their box for Bradford’s first and second goals.

Exeter City fell to a heavy defeat away at Cambridge United as they were beaten by four goals to nil at the Abbey Stadium.

The Grecians started the match slowly and gave away the ball too often in midfield in the first half as they went into the break deservedly behind. However, City began the second half with purpose and almost got back into the match before Cambridge United hit them with a sucker-punch just before the hour, with their second goal, and then added two more on the break.

Exeter City host Forest Green Rovers on October 12 aiming to continue their excellent start to the League Two season.

A long unbeaten run saw Exeter’s League Two betting odds to win the title slashed to 6/1 and they will fancy their chances of picking up another three points against Forest Green.

City will undoubtedly be hoping to build on their early season results after what has been a frustrating few years for the club.

It was a case of two points dropped for Exeter City at Gresty Road as we were held to a 1-1 draw by Crewe Alexandra.

The Grecians took an early lead when Dean Moxey converted an Archie Collins cross to the back post after only two minutes but, following a host of missed first half chances, Crewe Alexandra got back into the game second half and equalised through substitute Chuma Anene.

Manager Matt Taylor named an unchanged side for the third league game in succession, while Crewe made two changes bringing in Owen Dale and Olly Lancashire for Perry Ng and Dan Powell.
