Graham Alexander cut a frustrated figure after watching his Fleetwood side throw away a lead and their unbeaten run in a 2-1 loss to Exeter.

With five men at the back the Grecians frustrated their high-flying hosts before hitting them late on the counter.

It paid dividends, Scot Bennett's double within five second-half minutes cancelling out Matty Blair's opener.

The Cod Army had won their previous four games, and Alexander said: "It was a frustrating afternoon.

"First half they played to frustrate us which you can understand with our recent form.

"The two goals we're not happy with.

"We've taken the lead and taken a backward step.

"We tried to protect the 1-0 rather than playing the same."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
