Monday, 9th September, 1968
Football League
Bradford (away),
Lost 2-1

Perhaps we had come to expect too much from the City after some of the delightful games we have seen them play during the past month, but judged by any standards we were a poor side at Bradford.

Suffice to say that this was Bradford's first victory in 25 League games and they deserved to beat Exeter, who left too many gaps in the middle and would have taken a hiding from a better team than Bradford.

Once again we scored first. This time it was Peter Bullock who put us ahead, but once again the opposition pushed us back in that notorious spell early in the second half, notorious for Exeter that is. and they scored twice within 10 minutes of the restart.

Team: Shearing; Smyth, Balson; Kirkham, Harvey, Newman; Corr, Blain.
Bullock, Mitten. Pleat.
