Exeter boss Paul Tisdale believes there is all to play for in the second leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy southern final after securing a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Brentford.
Jamie Cureton struck first for the visitors just before the break when he latched on to a through ball and fired an angled drive across Bees keeper Richard Lee and into the far corner.
But the Londoners equalised on 64 minutes when Gary Alexander swept home Myles Weston's first time cross to set up a nail-biting second leg at St James's Park.
Tisdale said: "I'm pleased with the result but I did think we had enough chances to go on and score a second.
"Brentford made it difficult for us and I wasn't surprised by their reaction when we scored because they do what the do very well and are effective.
"I was pleased with our performance and it will be an interesting night down at our place."
