City draw at Huish Park

16 July 2022

Exeter City's fifth pre-season fixture ended in a draw as Matt Jay cancelled out Tom Knowles strike on a sweltering afternoon at Yeovil.

The Glovers' Knowles pounced on a defensive error midway through the first half, before the Grecians captain made the most of a fortuitous deflection inside the six yard box to level the scores before the break. 

Matt Taylor named a strong starting line up, with nine other members of the squad introduced to the field throughout the afternoon. 

An early mishap in defence lead to a threat from the hosts, however Harry Lee was poised and cleared the ball at the edge of the box. A chip from Pierce Sweeney found Harry Kite in plenty of space on the right flank of the pitch, coming to no avail however as a shot from the midfielder drifted wide of the far post.

Then,  cross from Jake Caprice into the centre of the opposition box failed to result in a goal with Yeovil applying enough pressure to prevent the awaiting partnership of Tim Dieng and Sam Nombe from putting the Grecians in front.

Sharp movement and quick passing from Trialist provided plenty of options - as he did in Tuesday's win over the Truro - for the Grecians as they tried to break the deadlock, with the midfielder appearing as one of the brightest players in the early minutes.

City’s first shot on goal came in the form of a well worked team effort that found the feet of Sam Nombe just outside the penalty area, with a low driven shot finding the gloves of the Town keeper.

However, opening goal came for the hosts after a loose pass from from Sam Stubbs, gifting Yeovil’s Knowles, who found himself in plenty of space on the left side of the Grecian penalty area, with a low shot towards the bottom right corner of goal squeezing past young academy goalkeeper Lee.

City were knocking on the door, with the Town keeper parrying a dangerous ball away from goal and keeping the hosts narrowly in front. Minutes later, academy graduate Jack Sparkes was given the chance to make use of his shooting boots, with a powerful shot flying just wide of the left post.

City’s equaliser came in the 33rd minute as a mix-up at the back from Yeovil defenders resulted in captain Jay being gifted a golden opportunity to pull the teams level, with a low shot in the bottom left corner of the goal proving too much for the goalkeeper after great work from Sparkes with the delivery.

Two changes at the beginning of the second half saw Archie Collins and Cheick Diabate replacing Dieng and Stubbs in an effort to spread the gametime throughout the squad.

Fancy footwork from Jack Sparkes on the edge of the box allowed him to work forward and play a dangerous cross in towards the opposition goal, with the ball being fumbled and eventually cleared by the Yeovil backline as they attempted a counter attack which ended with a strong challenge from trialist, and the first booking of the game for the youngster.

Following Alex Hartridge’s replacement of Jonathan Grounds in defence, the Grecians broke forward this time in the form of Collins as he spread the ball onto trialist, who found Sparkes on the edge of the box. A low cross from a tight angle followed and was met with a block from the Glover’s back line.

As the hour mark rolled by, Matt Taylor replenished his squad with the additions Josh Coley, Jevani Brown and Pedro Borges as the visitors battled to put themselves ahead in the tie.

Lee shone in the 72nd minute as a low driven shot from the hosts was caught by the young goalkeeper, keeping the match level and allowing The Grecians to embark on another counter attacking chance, with a precise cross from academy player Borges finding the gloves of the home keeper.

As the final ten minutes came into sight, a well worked move between Borges and Coley gave striker Brown his first shot of the game, with the ball meeting the outstretched leg of a Yeovil defender, allowing the ball to be cleared from goal. Following this move, Taylor continued his trend of giving as many opportunities to academy products with the addition of Iseguan, Billington and Clarke to the field.

Despite promising passing moves from the Grecians in the latter stages of the game, Yeovil defended stoically to prevent further goals.

City XI: Lee, Caprice, Sweeney, Stubbs, Grounds, Sparkes, Kite, Trialist, Dieng, Nombe, Jay.

Subs: Collins, Diabate, Hartridge, Coley, Brown, King, Borges, Iseguan, Clark, Billington.
