First published in Sport

EXETER City staged a late rally to win 3-2 at Southend in League 2 yesterday.

Jimmy Keohane gave Exeter the lead in the tenth minute but the visitors found themselves 2-1 behind within 12 minutes following two headers by Mark Phillips.

That's the way it stayed until eight minutes from time when Liam Sercombe equalised with a stunning strike into the top corner from outside the box.

Then a dramatic late strike by substitute Eliot Richards completed Exeter's comeback.
