EXMOUTH TOWN boss Mike Walsh was once more lamenting his side's lack of fortune when table topping Galmpton Gents stole the points with a 97th minute winner on Saturday afternoon.Town had travelled to South Devon in great hope after recent performances suggested that they need not go with any fear and they had much the better of the early exchanges, deservedly taking the lead through Dan Broadway.The only disappointing thing from Town followers' perspective was that a second goal did not arrive during the first half when they enjoyed near total dominance with a neat brand of smart passing football.It was not until the 65th minute that the home side, urged on by a partisan following of 200 supporters, finally drew level and then came that winning goal deep into added time.Walsh said: "Where seven minutes came from is beyond me, even with six substitutions that's plus three minutes, and for the life of me I cannot fathom where the other four arose. But that's football life for you. When things are not falling for you, they sure don't. But our luck will change. There's no doubt we are playing some super stuff and Saturday's performance was our best to date and there's more to come from this set of lads, believe me."Next up is a trip to Exeter and a meeting with a University side who went down 6-1 at home to Stoke Gabriel at the weekend but Walsh won't be fooled by that: "Stoke are a good side and the Uni is always going to be something of an unknown quantity, especially whilst they bed in all the new students, so we can travel there with plenty of optimism and if we reproduce the style we showed at Galmpton then we'll be okay.
