EXETER City last night got past Oxford United on penalties to set up a Wembley clash with fellow finalists Morecambe.

Morecambe had overcome a tough York City challenge in the other sem-final tie, and most of Britain were urging Exeter on last night, to set up a tasty final.

You may be wondering why we are reporting non this, and it is simply because, the team who wins the play-offs will be playing at the Fraser Eagle next season.

Exeter went in to the game trailing 1-0 following a first leg defeat, but the under dogs turned the tie around.

Paul Tisdale’s men looked down and out as Yemi Odubade doubled Oxford’s aggregate lead, 27 minutes in.

Lee Phillips gave Exeter a glimmer of hope five minutes before the half time break, with a fantastic header in to the far corner of Oxford ‘keeper Billy Turley’s net.

With only 20 minutes remaining, substitute Adam Stansfield found the net, rounding Turley before slotting the ball home with ease, to set up a penalty shoot out.

Exeter won 4-3 on penalties to send them to Wembley, with a chance of Promotion to the Football League.
