Brennan Dickenson was happy with the fight Exeter City showed as they came from a goal down to earn a point against Crawley Town in a difficult game at St James Park on Saturday.
The game was affected by a variety of weather conditions on the day and it made things tough for both sets of players.
"It was a difficult game with the pitch and the conditions, but it’s for both teams so we have to put that to the back of our minds," said Brennan. "Overall, a sticky first-half, trying to get through the pitch was difficult but in the last thirty we pushed on and were fortunate enough to get a goal in the second-half."
Speaking about his goal – a powerfully hit shot across Crawley goalkeeper Glenn Morris – Brennan added: “Randell’s done really well to lay me off and I just thought, hit the target and anything could happen – I caught it sweetly and it’s gone in.
“Going forward for me is probably the stronger side of my game and when I’m able to get forward, put crosses in the box and get shots off I’m happy to do so.”
Brennan’s equaliser, coming in the 81st-minute, brought City back on level terms after Ashley Nadesan had put the visitors ahead in the first-half, with a chip over Lewis Ward.
“It was important to stay patient, play the way we do and not play into their hands. Conceding the goal in the fashion that we did, maybe we were guilty of that in the first-half, but second-half we were much better.”
Lastly, Brennan spoke about moving forwards, continuing the Grecians’ impressive home record at St James Park, where they haven’t lost in the league since the end of September 2019.
“It’s a good point at the end of the game, but it’s still disappointing not to get all three," said Brennan. "Our home form is very important – we’ve got to make this place a fortress, make it hard for other teams to come here and another match ticked off without losing helps that with another game here on Tuesday.”
