Fleetwood 0-0 Exeter

League Two play-off hopefuls Exeter were frustrated by Fleetwood as the two sides played out a goalless draw.

Jamie Cureton and John O'Flynn both had efforts cleared off the line late on for the visitors.

The hosts have now failed to score in over 500 minutes of football, Jon Parkin coming closest with a header.

Fleetwood have taken just two points from a possible 15 and are seven points below Exeter who occupy the final play-off position.

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"We had to work incredibly hard for the point. I thought we were determined, very focussed, very motivated and they did what I asked them to do. It's hard to fault them really.

Almost the perfect game - Tisdale

"It was a game that probably warranted a goal, and one or two more than just a single goal.

"The pitch actually didn't play as well as we thought it was going to play. It was a bit dead in places, a bit sticky, it just wasn't great.

"They had a tad more pressure in the second half, but we had the better chances I think."
