30 minutes of thrill for Exeter City



We all know that the final 30 minutes of a game are the most exciting, but this season no set of fans has felt that on their skin like the St. James’ Park faithful.

At the weekend encounter away at Bury, the hosts Chris Hussey put David Flitcroft’s recently relegated side 1-0 up in the 65th minute. The Shakers exploited the spark and drove on towards a 2-0 scoreline. Hussey’s goal was the 13 goal Exeter have conceded between the 61st and 75th minute, which is equal to or more than any other League Two side.

Interestingly, Paul Tisdale’s men have only conceded five goals in the final quarter (plus added time) of the games this season. That’s equal to Southend and less than any other League Two outfit. So instead of accepting their misery, they’ve exploited the dying minutes in the best possible manner; their 17 goals make a better record than any other side in the league. In fact, the Grecians have scored an incredible 36% of their goals in the sixteen final percent of the game.

If these trends continue, we may face a frantic finish of the game when Exeter face Cheltenham on Saturday. The latter have scored twelve of their 47 goals between the 61st and 75th minute and shipped twelve¬† in the final quarter, only three less than Portsmouth’s fifteen that are most in the league.
