Albion 2 – 0 Exeter


Oh Arrrrr, Exeter's firm front up at Withdean

Noel Edmonds supports Exeter City, that effectively makes them the duffest team in the whole Football League. Bloody Wurzels. If that wasn’t enough ignominy for their fans to stomach, they’re now also the only team we’ve done the double over this season, aw-roight then laaards?

A good day at Withers today, and boy was it coming. A good crowd turned out, probably inspired by tales of great football witnessed on the south bank of the Thames on tuesday night. Our home form has finally caught up with the displays in our away adventures, and the table is looking fairer now too.

The Seagulls dominated the first 45, Elphick scoring a great headed goal from one of Elliott Bennett’s improved deliveries at corners. We gave the farmers a bit of a sniff later on, but when Dicker volleyed in a screamer from just outside their box early doors in the second half it was game over, never in doubt. Exeter are in the shit, I think they’re defo going down in May.

Our best players were Elphick – solid again as he bossed and bullied their toothless attack. LuaLua was brilliant once more, he skinned their right back every chance, giving the poor lad a torrid time until he was subbed on 69 minutes. The final ball needs to be better, but he’s one hell of a loan signing. Painter was excellent at left back, did everything well. But man of the match was that man Gary Dicker again, he deserved his wonder goal after his creativity and battling to win the ball in the middle of the park.

So, I’ll say no more, watch the highlights of this one with relish, especially Dicker’s effort. Things are looking up, Poyet is the right man for this job, I am won over; the Leeds, Charlton and now Exeter games have proven he has the right personnel and the right 4-5-1 tactics to take this club onwards. Great stuff.

    Ok hope this is not going sound silly but I found yesterdays match very boring to listen to good a result as it was I do hope this is not going to be the trend winning all the time boring,boring …………………….lol

    good result and the word solid comes to mind and both goals looks spectacular on the late night TV show and dare I say it we might just might have turned the corner

    till Monday night

    It was bad to watch if you were an Exeter fan, they are awful, but for me it was more of the same carried over from Charlton. It did peter out last 30-25 mins, but there was no real danger then.

    There’s a buzz around Withdean again which is good, I think we’ll be ok now, jst keep playing the one touch football we are and things should fine
