Think we have the makings of a half decent side there now. We were the better team in the first half, without threatening their keeper too often. The Vernon shot that hit the post was our only real chance created, and they put one just past the post. Second half, they were the better side as i thought they would be, but i think their better was a bit better then our better, if you see what i mean.

They looked a tad more fluid and threatening when on top than we did in the first half, which considering their league position, was not surprising. A combination of McKeown and the wood work kept them at bay, but they pushed us back and made us stretched, which forced us to hit the ball long a lot more than the first half. Our defence looks a lot more balanced now, with proper full backs. Hendrie impresses me more with time and i thought he was our best player.

We look much better than we did earlier in the season, and didn't look second best to a side at the top end of the league. Think we will be fine this season, but need one or two more signings in Jan to progress more as a team.

Fair result. Mitch Rose outstanding but would just give MoM to Alex Whitmore who played Stockley really well. For the life of me I can't work how Vernam gets subbed and Hooper stays on.

Because vernam fades. He just seems to run out of steam. Hooper is there for his defending also.   Good point against a good side

I really enjoyed the game some really good football. Two good teams. The best ref so far this season.
I think all Town players did well but Mitch Rose was awesome.

Great confidence boosting performance by Town but if I had to nitpick.....we need to get more streetwise....when their player recklessly took our player out (forget who it was) and got a yellow...... our player got straight up and possibly saved him from getting a red.
Little things change games and the likes of Lincoln would certainly have been rolling around and surrounding the ref asking for a red.

Agree Mitch is joy to watch at times. Harry Clifton also did well but looked tired 75mins on. Thought Hess might have come on in his place. Collins  and Whitmore were excellent against a potent strike force.

Good point against a good team and a lot of credit to several individuals as well as the whole team and management. Much more like it and well done.
Gives us a little bit of momentum and that's massive in football. Home game Tuesday night and our players should feel confident.

If this team can get in the groove, then Jolley’s 2 and 3 year contracts could be really valuable.  Get the core of this young squad in the side next season, some promise in the youth team and it might just be the start of an era.

Good performance, just lacking the quality to really hurt them. It was a genuinely enjoyable experience as was the last home game.

Our subs didn’t really work for us today and I felt Vernam was looking the most likely to create something.

Looking forward to Tuesday

I thought our subs were safe options today, which given the fact Exeter were looking the better team was the best thing to do.
