Exeter vs Colchester
Sky Bet League Two
3:00pm Saturday January
St James Park
Exeter and Colchester extended their lengthy unbeaten runs as they played out a Sky Bet League Two goalless stalemate.
Exeter went into the match having not dropped in the league since November 2, while Colchester also extended their streak to 15 games with a stage against the Grecians, but it did little to help both sides in their various promotion conflicts.
The hosts had a opportunity – the top of this game – within the opening three minutes, after going through on goal, however, Ryan Bowman dragged his shot wide of the post.
Harry Pell analyzed Jonny Maxted with a shot from space, while Callum Harriott was denied by a brilliant goal-line block by Pierce Sweeney since Colchester responded, however the Exeter goalkeeper was equal to it.
Jayden Richardson fired a chance for Exeter across the face of goal, this was the sole probability of another half that has been devoid of chances, although when he must have uttered to the Nicky Ajose that was unmarked.
The visitors pressed, searching for a winner, but Exeter came with an Archie Collins volley that was preserved by Dean Gerken together with the last kick of the match.
