Tiverton 1-2 Exeter City: 3 Things we Learned

1. Let’s go fly a Kite

Harry Kite looks ready. Playing in a midfield two with Jake Taylor, Kite made shuttling run after run recycling possession and making the team over. Providing defensive coverage while moving forward when needed he was a good foil for Taylor who was dropping deeper to receive the ball and attempt to dictate play. Kite looked like a young Taylor and seems ready to play minutes this season.

2. Defensive Depth

Hartridge, Dyer, Dean and Key will give defensive depth. All of them looked competent and able to fill in when needed this season. Cover at left back still looks a need though A & B Trialists have impressed so far. Dyer looked more comfortable centrally rather than at RB but Key looked dangerous there throughout the first half.

3. Firing Blanks

Going Forward we are stuttering. Seymour struggled to get into the game in the first half and Ajose, making a rare appearance, sputtered through lack of service when he came on. The formation of 4231 gave a lot of freedom and space to Matt Jay, in the hole behind the striker, but he rarely took advantage. He took his goal well but didn’t create much. Williams had an evening to forget but he’ll come good it’s just it can’t just be him again this season again.
