Exeter dominated the first half and created a host of chances to go in front. The best of those fell to Jamie Cureton, Exeter's 20-goal top scorer, who could easily have had a hat-trick.

Twice he got on the end of balls from Craig Woodman but failed to find the net. His best chance came when he was found by Matt Oakley 18 yards out, only to scuff the ball over the crossbar.

Gillingham had created little in the first half and they were not much better after the break.

Scot Bennett struck a fierce shot straight at Stuart Nelson for Exeter and substitute Guillem Bauza dragged an effort wide of the far post from 18 yards.

Gillingham's only opening in the second half came from substitute Danny Kedwell, but he hooked a shot wide.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
