📸 PPA UK: March

A month-by-month look at the action from club photographers PPA UK

21 June 2022

As we take a look back at last season month by month via our club photographers PPA UK, we now head into March where the promotion race really started to hot up.

City were beaten in their first match of the month away at Mansfield - their first defeat since new Year's Day, but it was a mere blip in a near perfect month for the Grecians. 

Four days after that defeat we welcomed Swindon Town to SJP in a big match for both sides - the Robins were looking to maintain a healthy play-off position. Jevani Brown, Jonathan Grounds and Mat Jay were all on the scoresheet in a 3-1 win which pushed City into third place, still with a game in hand on other teams around them.

Just a week later and it was another victorious game under the lights for City as they beat Crawley Town 2-1 in controversial fashion. City's second - and Tim Dieng's second - goal of the game was given by the referee, despite the away side feeling their keeper Glenn Morris had been fouled by Offrande Zanzala. After a conversation between the referee and his assistant, the goal was allowed to stand. It was also the first match in which we got to see a goal graphic on our new big screen, with it's debut overseeing a goalless draw against Salford three days prior.

The new big screen had some goals to show on its second appearance above the Tracks Suzuki St James Road Stand.

The wins kept on coming as we travelled to relegation battlers Oldham Athletic. We recorded a 2-0 win, but not before Cameron Dawson had to save a penalty from Sam Hart, and Nigel Atangana saw red.

It started to feel like it was happening... the players celebrate post match as Jevani Brown's 95th minute strike rounded off a 2-0 win at Boundary Park.

After a goalless draw at Port Vale with a depleted side, Stevenage were the next visitors to SJP and two identical Sam Stubbs headers - his first goals for the club - secured a 2-1 win as City finally started to put distance between themselves and the play-off places, five points to be exact. Slowly building...
