FOOTBALL: Richards brace eases Exeter relegation fears
6:33pm Sunday 23rd March 2014 in Sport
EXETER notched their first home win since October when they beat promotion-chasing Fleetwood 3-0 in League 2 yesterday.
Exeter controlled the first half, and were rewarded when Fleetwood's Jon Parkin turned the ball past his own goalkeeper from a free-kick.
Exeter pushed on in the second period, and a quick double from Eliot Richards condemned Fleetwood to their first defeat in seven games.
The result is a massive boost for the Grecians who move away from the relegation zone.
