Mid Devon Star: FOOTBALL: Late volley sinks Exeter City FOOTBALL: Late volley sinks Exeter City

EXETER City were sunk by an injury time winner at Bristol Rovers in League 2 on Saturday.

The Grecians were lucky to take the lead in the 20th minute when Lee Brown's challenge on David Wheeler saw the ball loop over goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall for an own goal.

Within seconds Rovers were level as Eliot Richards was tripped by Danny Butterfield inside the penalty area and John-Joe O'Toole converted the spot-kick.

Then just as Exeter looked set to collect a point, O'Toole volleyed home Chris Beardsley's cross from 12 yards.
