Grecians hit back to hold Saints

06 February 2010 06:17
Exeter staged a spirited second-half fightback to salvage a point in a 1-1 draw against promotion hopefuls Southampton. Saints dominated the first half and, after Rickie Lambert had seen a shot well blocked by Rob Edwards, grabbed a fully deserved lead. Richard Duffy failed to deal with a free-kick at the back post and Adam Lallana was on hand to fire the visitors ahead. The Grecians had failed to manage a single shot on goal in the first half but equalised four minutes after the restart. Scott Golbourne delivered a corner to the far post where captain Matt Taylor was on hand to power a header past Kelvin Davies. Exeter hit a post in stoppage time through substitute Bertie Cozic, before former Exeter defender Danny Seaborne poked a shot over the bar for Saints with the last kick of the game.
