Attendance; 3,855 (695 away).

Man of the Match; Danny Hollands - Another biting display in the centre of midfield full of chasing and harrying in an attempt to stop Exeter’s lengthy periods of second-half possession.

We Want Him; Ollie Watkins - Exeter need inspiration from somewhere and they got it from the youngster, conjuring up a leveller out of nothing to win a point.

We Don’t Want Him; Jayden Stockley - Wasted two headed opportunities and looked well off the pace as he struggled to shine against the club he served on loan.

Magic Moment; Conor Chaplin’s 31st minute strike was a touch of quality, created by superb control and finished in his usual calm and collected manner.

Their Manager; Paul Tisdale - Side deserved to grab a late point as they retained second-half possession to put the visitors under constant pressure.
