Exmouth Town manager Kevin Hill reflected on Town’s frustrating 1-0 defeat at the Circle of Care Community Stadium to Tavistock in the Southern League Division One South.

A late Dan Koita goal meant that Tavistock took the bragging rights home, with a great goalkeeping performance from Adam Dearing preventing Town from getting any goals themselves.

“The trouble is all the goals have come in one game like last week, today we have had nine/ten shots on target, three/four really good chances, Ace’s (High) header, Ben’s (Steer) penalty, they are game changers, but I said at half time Tavistock will have one chance and one goal.

“That’s been us to a tee this season, we’ve started off well, gone at teams and had chances, miss chances, and then for some reason we take a backwards step for the last ten minutes of the first half, we stopped doing the things that got us here.

“We lost our shape and couldn’t get it back, that’s where we need leaders to step up and control the midfield.

“Andy’s (Sowden-Bird) done really well, but unfortunately, when a keeper makes a mistake it can cost you games, strikers can miss open goals and it doesn’t come back and bite you, things like that happen, and we should have had scored two or three at least.”
