Exeter City 1-1 Bristol Rovers

Jamie Reid's injury-time goal earned Exeter City a draw with Bristol Rovers.

Rovers dominated the first half and Bobby Olejnik was forced to save from Stuart Sinclair and then Rory Gaffney.

At the other end, Alex Nicholls saw his free-kick saved by Steve Mildenhall, before Matty Taylor's effort for Rovers was ruled out for offside.

Sinclair finally put the visitors ahead with a spectacular 25-yard effort late on, only for Reid to volley in from 12 yards to equalise in injury time.
