Boro open with Exeter draw

Both sides content after game of few clear-cut chances

One down, 45 to go.

Boro began this year’s league campaign with a draw just as they did last season and the season before that - and we all know how those two campaigns ended.

This year, of course, offers a more difficult proposition for Graham Westley’s men, and whereas last season’s opening stalemate against Macclesfield - which was, by some, considered a disappointing result - could have been attributed in part to nerves or naivety, today’s display was a more confident, if somewhat patchy, opening day performance.

Both sides had chances - Scott Laird tested Artur Krysiak on more than one occasion while Richard Logan hit a volley close to Alan Julian’s post – and come the final whistle both sides seemed content with a point.

Next up is Peterborough United on Tuesday - and of course, the return of George Boyd - before 45 becomes 44 next weekend at Chesterfield.
