On the way to Wembley?

Chris Goodlad writes: "I managed to watch the match [Exeter versus Torquay] on TV last night in the comfort of Henry's Bar for the price of a J2O. I was one of two supporters who watched the game! So much for the mass of excited fans watching in the local pubs. They showed the disallowed goal on Setanta about six times and we both agreed that it was not offside. I remember Martin Rice doing the same thing as Paul Jones when he played for Exeter only Martin Rice managed to do it twice in one match! I hope Exeter get a bit of any luck going in Monday's match - enjoy the trip."

The irony of Jones' costly mistake in the first leg of the Blue Square play off last Thursday night was that in the Final last year (which the Grecians lost to Morcambe), Jones became the first person to save a penalty at the new Wembley.
