Exeter Snatch Late Point at Dons
Exeter City ended January with a welcome point at playoff contenders MK Dons.
Barry Corr`s injury time equaliser halts a run of six successive away defeats for the Grecians.
Corr`s left foot strike from Adam Stansfield`s hooked pass was City`s first away point since the win at Stockport in November.
Paul Tisdale`s side almost opened the scoring in the first half, but Ryan Harley`s strike from 18 yards hit the post. Marcus Stewart got to the rebound, but Dons keeper Willy Gueret denied him.
The Dons broke the deadlock five minutes after half time, when Sam Baldock clinically finished into the top left hand corner after a one-two with Aaron Wilbraham.
The second half developed into a bad tempered affair, with card happy referee Mr Cook the main protagonist. The visitors did most of the pressing, and had chances, most notable of which was a free header for Richard Logan which was straight at Gueret.
The Dons were dangerous on the break, but City still had time to find an equaliser when seven added minutes were declared by the fourth official. They only needed 90 seconds of that added time to score, and Corr`s equaliser makes up somewhat for the lost point at home to Carlisle on Tuesday night.
