LOAN WATCH | Robbie Willmott grabs assist on Exeter City debut

8 February 2021

Robbie Willmott enjoyed a dream debut for Exeter City as he bagged an assist in a 3-2 win over Bradford City.

The 30-year-old found the head of Ryan Bowman with a perfect cross to tie the score at 2-2 after Charles Vernam and Oliver Crankshaw netted for Bradford either side of a Pierce Sweeney strike. 

Matt Jay then wrapped up all three points with a penalty before Willmott was replaced five minutes from time.   

The Grecians travel to Barrow tomorrow evening. 

Also, in Sky Bet League Two, Tristan Abrahams led the attack on his debut for Leyton Orient. The striker played the full 90 minutes and saw a header saved as well as an effort blocked in the second half of the goalless draw with Colchester United. 

Carlisle United are the next opponents for the O’s tomorrow night. 

Elsewhere, Kyle Howkins started for Solihull Moors as they drew 1-1 at 10-man Eastleigh in the National League.  

Joe Sbarra’s last-minute equaliser rescued a draw for Howkins and his team-mates after Tyrone Barnett had opened the scoring for Eastleigh, who had Joe Partington sent off.

The defender was making his third appearance since his loan move in January.  

Next up for Solihull Moors is a trip to Hartlepool United tomorrow. 

Corey Whitely was an unused substitute for Boreham Wood, who take on Weymouth tomorrow.
