Devon clotted dreams
Exeter City 1 Charlton Athletic 1
I listened as Charton threw everything at the Devonians late on in a result that confirmed our play-off place but also the almost certitude of missing out on a coveted top two place after straight forward hoke wins for both Leeds and Millwall. What that means is, like Norwich last week, Leeds and their supporters come to The Valley next Saturday knowing a win will take them up.
Over a 1,000 Addicks willed Charlton on as we attacked the away end in the second half and once again it was stirring performance but for the 7th consecutive game we failed to score more than one goal. Substitute Kyel Reid on for Racon got our equaliser, given as over the line by the referee's assistant although according to the radio Reid appeared in no doubt. Barnstaple born Wolves loanee George Friend had headed the home side in front.
Twice we hit the woodwork and Exeter 'keeper Paul Jones made plenty of excellent saves as time ran out. In saying that Darren Randolph also did his bit with a very smart save in each half.
There has been plenty of times this season when we have sounded lacklustre at best but to be fair to Parky's charges that has not been the case in the past four games, each one tricky. But at a time when it is results that matter we have only won one of those four matches.At St James' Park
