Colchester   2 - 2   Exeter

Colchester V Exeter

Colchester 2 - 2 Exeter

Clive Platt scored a late equaliser to earn Colchester a draw with Exeter.

Exeter had early chances but Stuart Fleetwood hit the post from four yards and had an effort cleared off the line.

Fleetwood eventually struck when he slotted in Marcus Stewart's pass but Colchester levelled when Platt headed in Marc Tierney's cross.

Exeter regained the lead through Ryan Harley's curled free-kick but Platt clipped in to level before the U's Medy Elito was sent off late on for a lunge.


Colchester United manager, Aidy Boothroyd, told BBC Essex:

"Exeter adapted to the conditions better than us. They played better than us, which is very rare I say that because I've got such a good team.

"We weren't at it from the start and you can say we've got a lot of character to to get back in to it.

"But we should never have been in that position and we've got a bit of work to do."

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"It's so disappointing because we were fabulous today, it's the best we've played all season by a stretch.

"Apart from some schoolboy defending on the half-way line with a couple of minutes to go, we were outstanding.

"But the players were absolutely brilliant today against a very good side in bad conditions."
