Manager Leigh Robinson said after the game:" I was pleased with the first half performance but our play became fragmented in the second period with the number of substitutions, which hasn't happened up to now but we haven't played a side of Exeter's quality. It was a worthwhile exercise and not as one-sided as the score would suggest."
