Match 33
30th January 1960
Workington (h)

EXETER CITY 1 WORKINGTON 0
AT ST JAMES'S PARK.

SATURDAY JANUARY 30TH:

CITY WAKE UP AND WIN!

As they are unbeaten in a home League game since October 7th last year, and having climbed to seventh in the table, Exeter City were obviously favourites to win their match with Workington, and this they did, but it was not until the latter part of the second half that they really looked like pulling it off. Then after many missed chances at the Workington end and an equal number of narrow escapes at their own end they woke up, and Rees netted the only goal of the match 15 minutes from time. Exeter's main faults were keeping the ball too close and not moving up in attack quickly enough. The best players in an unchanged team were MacDonald, Oliver, and Rees.
