Notts County   0 - 2   Exeter

Notts County 0-2 Exeter

Notts County 0-2 Exeter

Goals from Steve Tully and Matthew Taylor helped Exeter pick up their first away win since November at the expense of a lacklustre Notts County.

Jamie Cureton was denied twice before Tully broke the deadlock when he fired in after John O'Flynn's shot was saved.

The lead was extended when Taylor powerfully headed home Ryan Harley's corner as the visitors continued to dominate proceedings.

County's best chance came in the last minute when Lee Hughes struck the post.


Notts County assistant manager Alex Rae told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"We wanted to start all guns blazing and to get out the traps early doors but it never actually happened like that.

"I think part of the problem is that we've lost a couple of wide guys.

"We lost Thomas Ince and we also lost Ben Davies, which gave us natural width which could get down and get to the byline."

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:
"It was an important game, it's not an underestimation to say it was a very big game because we had a very disappointing week last week.

"Whichever way you look at it we needed a bit of a pick-up today and we certainly got that - the players were totally committed.

"I'm really pleased with the togetherness of the team today, not that we've not had it before, but it could have been called into question if we had come here and had a weak performance."
