Stansfield rescues point for Exeter

Adam Stansfield struck two minutes from time to gain Exeter City a credible point at home to Milwall.

Stansfield`s cross was blown towards goal and ended up in the left hand corner. The game was played in difficult weather conditions, and the Grecians will see this as a point gained after yet another late rescue. As well as the late win at Stockport on Saturday, Exeter have rescued points at home to Norwich, Swindon, Wycombe, and now Milwall with late goals.

In a match of few chances, the visitors won a penalty in the twenty second minute when Bertie Cozic fouled David Martin. Martin successfully converted to put the South Londoners ahead. Early in the second half Steve Tully was given his marching orders after a second yellow. This provided a blow to City`s chances of getting back into the match. Milwall pushed up and made it difficult for the home side to impose themselves.

In response, City manager Paul Tisdale brought Richard Duffy on into the right back position on the hour. Tisdale had started with an unchanged starting line from the previous two games, but swapped Stuart Fleetwood and Barr Corr for Stansfield and Richard Logan in attack with just over twenty minutes remaining.

With time running out, the Grecians upped the tempo. And Stansfield`s freak goal ensured City`s unbeaten run extended to six games. Furthermore, the late goal preserved a proud home record of only one defeat in nine league games this season. Whilst the gap between Exeter and the final relegation place was reduced from seven to six points, they did move up one place to fourteenth. And for those looking up, the play-offs are seven points away…
