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

A late equaliser saw Exeter gain a point from a one-one draw with promotion chasing Portsmouth.

Portsmouth’s took the lead just past the half hour mark through Conor Chaplin but the Grecians, who threatened through former Pompey loanee Jayden Stockley more than once, gained a point in the 90th-minute when Ollie Watkins combined with Clinton Morrison to score.

These were the other results.

Cambridge 1-0 Wycombe
Carlisle 2-2 Leyton Orient
Crawley 2-0 Newport
Exeter 1-1 Portsmouth
Luton 1-0 Morecambe
Northampton 1-1 Wimbledon
Notts County 0-0 Dag & Red
Oxford Utd 4-0 York
Yeovil 1-0 Accrington

Having last week beaten promotion contenders Portsmouth (who drew one-one at Exeter) a week later Barnet (one-nil) did it again at home with automatic promotion chasing Plymouth seen off at the Hive!

For Plymouth though as most of the possible challengers to a top three finish they’re on for couldn’t pick up wins it didn’t impact too much with only the side they seem likely to battle for the runners-up spot behind Northampton (who drew one-one with play-off chasing Wimbledon) Oxford (four-nil) winning heavily against York.

A Hartlepool (four-one) loss at Bristol Rovers, who are fighting to go up, increases the relegation worries Craig Hignett’s side have whereas Yeovil (one-nil) continue to move towards safety with a win at Huish Park against Accrington.
