    Fair assessment of the game and the two teams’ situations. As an Exeter fan this is the most disappointing result of the season and we’re a bit down about our form at the moment.

    However, if we can turn it around soon we will avoid the relegation scrap and a mid-table finish will represent modest progression. While this may not be enough for the more impatient fans that are so rife in football, given our meteoric rise from the Conference in the preceding few years, this is more than enough for me.

    Last season when we slipped into the relagation zone the fans made a concerted effort to get behind the team, particularly at away games where we struggled for much of the season. This was embodied by crowds greeting the coach’s arrival at the ground and cheering the players off the bus. This seemed to have an effect, with us going on a unbeaten run that gave us the chance to escape the drop on the last day.

    This can be difficult to replicate at home games where many fans don’t see it as their job to get behind a team struggling for form.
