That's a shame since we seemed to be playing well and on top - at least in terms of the stats other than goals.

It would be funny if we don't play but go up a place.

Hard on the team though to go all that way, put in a decent performance, (pick up a yellow for Osbourne) and then have to replay. Harder on the fans that went.

Shortwood called off too.

Cooper out! Any decent manager would have realised with that much water you needed to get the subs launched early.

Couldn't make it today.

Feel for the fans who travelled and showed their support. Hopefully a safe journey home for them all.

Sounded like we had two up top which is a positive move after Saturday.

Probably treating it as a point for a draw if it was still playing, BBC is right.

Could have been stopped after half an hour. Still, good shift by most. Callum EVANS man of the match for my money

If I am not mistaken, he did well v Barnet and was subbed with us winning 2-0 then has not played until today. Undefeated, no goals conceded! Begs the question why he has not featured?

James did well to keeping his feet while defenders sank. Turn the taps on at Lincoln!

Best result we've managed in the last month and a half :lol:

Safe journey back to all those who braved it. Whatever omniscient being is in charge of football fixtures must love watching FGR v Exeter, the rearranged fixture will be the 5th one this season!

According to FGR Twitter video he got was on the team bus and down in his training kit so presume he wasn't picked for the match day squad for footballing reasons (rather than injury).

He has been so disappointing this season. I was looking forward to a Bugiel/Doige partnership to score lots of goals, but Omar just doesn't look sharp at the moment.

IIRC brett Huxtable was the ref in the infamous hand ball goal V Kidderminster game a couple of years ago, seem to recall another poor performance as well if not 2.

Never been at all impressed with him, amazing that he is reffing in the league. Odder is that a 4th I know from Glos was specifically told he couldnt be 4th for us in the National League as he lived in Glos. :? :shock:

He's not had a run of games to be fair. Don't think even doige could score sat on the bench. Quite difficult to make an impression with 5 minute cameos.

I don't think they gave the away attendance but I would guess over 200. As disappointing as it was there was no way the game could go on. Real shame as we were well on top with most of the possession.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world.
