Exeter 2-1 Dag & Red

Stuart Fleetwood
Fleetwood was playing in his fourth game for Exeter on loan from Charlton

Stuart Fleetwood hit his first goals for Exeter to help them climb to second in the League Two table.

Fleetwood curled in the opener from 25 yards before coming close with another effort from 30 yards out.

Sam Saunders twice came close to an equaliser before Ben Strevens did level after a mix-up between Troy Archibald-Henville and goalkeeper Paul Jones.

Fleetwood, on loan from Charlton, hit the winner with a dipping half-volley after a throw by Matt Gill.

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"We can search away and drag all sorts of things out of that 90 minutes to complain about and criticise.

"But let's not. It was a wonderful three points and that's what it was all about today.

"Stuart Fleetwood scored two magnificent goals and if we had not won today we would have felt a bit cheated because they were sublime."
