Exmouth Town coach Dave Pearse found plenty of positives from Town’s 2-1 away defeat against promotion chasing Frome Town, in the Southern League Division One South.

Town took the lead through Mike Landricombe, but a missed penalty from Louis Morison allowed the hosts to launch a come back, and goals from Kane Simpson and Marcus Day saw the visitors leave with nothing, in a game where they deserved more.

Speaking after the game, Pearse said: “We are gutted really, Frome had most of the possession, we set out to sit in and try hit them on the break, they are a very possession based side, who dominate the ball, but in chances, we created the better ones, a missed penalty as well. 

It’s fine margins, when you are bottom, those things don’t fall for you, but I think we matched them most of the game and we are very unlucky not to come out with a point.”

On joining Town, Pearse stated: “When I left Bridgwater, Kev (Hill) who I played with at Tiverton, asked me to help him, and I didn’t want to be out of football so I couldn’t say no.

I’ve played against this team many a time, as a manager and a player, so I know what Kev’s side’s are about, I went down to training on Wednesday, and after looking at the players I thought how are we bottom with the quality that we have, so I don’t think it will be long before we get a result, and go on a run of games where we start climbing off the bottom.”
