Smell the Glove(r): Could that result be any more black?

Out of all Exeter's early season results, this one has to be the most disappointing. In all seriousness, wins against Leeds and QPR were a bit fanciful, Norwich were a bit of an unknown quantity, but Yeovil are predicted to struggle this season and have a rookie manager, plus City were at home.

Without wanting to sound too dramatic, if City want to have a good season (whether that be not getting relegated, or a play-off place) then Yeovil at home is the kind of game we need to win.

No point in analysing it this end as I wasn't there, but from the sounds of things we had the better of the first half and didn't turn the screw when needed, which is something you get accustomed to watching Exeter. And a defensive mix-up for the equaliser. Less common to see, but still not a rarity.

From the two games I've seen so far, our defence and midfield are good enough (although lacking a bit of width, again nothing new) but we're missing the tireless running behind the defence that Adam Stansfield provide up front. Jimmy Norwood shows a lot of potential but he's not quite that player yet.

Next up is Carlisle away, and no intelligent analysis again as HaL is at a wedding (and Carlisle is a loooooooooooong way away). Exeter have a surprisingly good record at Brunton Park and Carlisle are another team that are beatable. Wouldn't be a bad place to pick up our first three points, that's for sure.
