This is The West Country: FOOTBALL: Richards brace eases Exeter relegation fears FOOTBALL: Richards brace eases Exeter relegation fears

EXETER notched their first home win since October when they beat promotion-chasing Fleetwood 3-0 in League 2 yesterday.

Exeter controlled the first half, and were rewarded when Fleetwood's Jon Parkin turned the ball past his own goalkeeper from a free-kick.

Exeter pushed on in the second period, and a quick double from Eliot Richards condemned Fleetwood to their first defeat in seven games.

The result is a massive boost for the Grecians who move away from the relegation zone.
