Millwall:- Davies; Jackson, R. Brady; Bumpstead, Brand, Harper; Broadfoot, Jones, Pierce, Heckman, Smith.
City: Jones; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Harvey, Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Wilkinson, Calland, Micklewright.
It was not until the 65th minute that Millwall scored, as the result of a penalty, given against MacDonald for hands. Heckman, who took the spot kick, made no mistake. Two minutes later they were level, Harper moving up to beat Jones with a shot from 35 yards that went into the net like a rocket. Millwall were more sure of themselves now, and they should have got the lead, but allowed at least three easy chances to go begging. Five minutes from the end it was Exeter's turn to create a scoring chance, and Calland went through on his own to draw Daives out and fire the ball home for the winning goal.
- The Exeter City Reserve game v Corby was postponed.
