Grecians fall to first defeat of the season

City 1 Grimsby Town 3 - Exeter City fell to their first defeat of the season as some defensive errors and missed chances cost them at home to Grimsby Town.

The Grecians, who were looking to break a club record of 14 league games without loss, started the match brightly but were dealt a blow when the visitors scored from a corner, when Archie Collins was off the pitch injured, and although they started the second half brightly, a costly penalty and swung the match very much in Grimsby’s favour.

The Grecians created the first notable opportunity of the match as Lee Martin...

Match report: Exeter City 1 Swindon Town 1

City denied top spot and 100 per cent record with late Swindon Town goal.

A late goal from Eion Doyle prevented Exeter City from maintaining their perfect start to the season in a 1-1 draw at home to Swindon Town.

The Grecians took the lead midway through the second half as Matt Jay superbly diverted a Lee Martin shot past Luke McCormick. Jay was also denied a second moments later when his volley, from a half-cleared corner, was blocked by one of his teammates on the edge of the six-yard box so it was a bitter blow when Swindon equalised with three minutes left.


The Grecians unable to seal play-off place

Exeter City were unable to seal a place in this season’s Sky Bet League Two play-offs despite a 0-0 draw with Forest Green Rovers.

Despite Newport County only being able to collect a point at Morecambe, the Grecians just needed that all-important goal but it didn’t arrive despite a number of chances throughout the match. Manager Matt Taylor made one change to the side that started the win over Oldham Athletic last time out with Nicky Law missing out through injury and he was therefore replaced by Hiram Boateng in the City midfield.

Ryan Bowman had City’s first attempt on...

City 2 Northampton Town 2

A devastating last-minute Northampton equaliser saw Ex City held to a draw against the Cobblers at St James Park.
