Exeter’s League 2 season continued with a draw against Newport at St James Park on Saturday.

The losing run was ended by Exeter but the one-one home draw with Newport, in the early kick-off, didn’t do much to help the faltering play-off hopes.

Newport, through Conor Wilkinson, had twice hit the post before Jordan Tillson put Exeter ahead early in the second half, with the Grecians on course for a much needed win until Scott Boden’s 84th-minute goal denied us this.

Exeter are now eight-points off the play-off.

These were the other results.

Saturday 20th February 2016
Exeter 1-1 Newport
Barnet 1-2 Wimbledon
Bristol Rovers 2-1 Morecambe
Cambridge 3-1 York
Carlisle 1-0 Stevenage
Crawley 1-1 Plymouth
Luton 2-1 Hartlepool
Mansfield 3-2 Dag & Red
Northampton 1-0 Wycombe
Notts County 0-1 Leyton Orient
Oxford Utd 1-2 Accrington
Yeovil 1-1 Portsmouth

The Northampton run continues, a 50-year plus winning run was equalled last time round with the Cobblers (one-nil) winning at Sixfields against play-off chasing Wycombe again to not only set that new club record of successive wins it also strengthens the promotion bid with them almost certain to be in League 1 next season.

With it looking a good bet to be as League 2 Champions!

Oxford’s (two-one) bid to join them took a knock as they lost again with Accrington, who have now closed in on the U’s, winning at the Kassam Stadium but Plymouth (one-one) missed the chance to open up more of a gap in second with a draw at Crawley.

With the play-off chasing pack congested Bristol Rovers (two-one) again Morecambe and Leyton Orient (one-nil) at Notts County responded well to defeats against Portsmouth and Northampton, respectively, last time to get those efforts going again.
