Northwich Victoria (h)

Exeter 2-3 Northwich

Northwich eased their relegation fears with a hard-fought win over Exeter.

The Vics led when Jonathan Allan found the net from just inside the area but Sean Devine's deft touch from Alex Jeannin's corner levelled the score.

Paul Brayson's drive and Andy Taylor's own goal put Northwich on top and Exeter substitute Jake Edwards was on just 11 minutes before being sent off.

Steve Flack's last-minute header reduced the arrears for Exeter but it came too late to salvage a point.
