Exeter City 0-0 Stevenage

Play-off chasing Exeter and Stevenage had to settle for a point as they played out an uninspiring goalless draw at St James Park.

Exeter's best chance came when Clinton Morrison turned sharply and volleyed the ball narrowly past the post.

David Wheeler headed against the crossbar and was later off target with another aerial attempt late on.

Stevenage applied some late pressure and Dean Wells was denied by a superb save from Exeter 'keeper James Hamon.

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Westley on Exeter v Stevenage

"I wouldn't have taken a point before the game, but I know it was a tough, tough ask tonight.

"I thought it was a very professional performance, tactically we took the game plan on to the letter.

"I thought we had by far the better chances over the 90 minutes. I think if there was a deserved winner on the night, it would have been us."
