Match 44
18th April 1959
Watford (a)

And in the Southern League
Exeter City Res v Cambridge City



At the interval neither side had scored, but Exeter City soon after the interval were in trouble, being two goals down after 60 minutes. They put up a very poor display and cannot grumble at the result of this match. Despite fielding an unchanged side following the fine display in the week against Crystal Palace they never found their form at all, and when they did make their effort it was too late. Rees was the only forward to show much life, and the City will need much better efforts than this in the remaining games to keep them in the promotion bracket.
