Budleigh Salterton slipped off the top of the SWP League Eastern Division when beaten at Greenway Lane.

The Robins went down by the odd goal in three to University.

It was Brett Wright who fired Robins back on level terms after the students had opened the scoring.

The visitors then won the game with a 70th minute strike after which, try as they did, the Greenway Lane side could not find a second equaliser.

Exmouth Town were without a game and that opened up the opportunity for Stoke Gabriel to take over at the top of the table following their 7-3 win at bottom of the bale Sidmouth Town.

Make sure of your copy of the Exmouth Journal (out next on Thursday, November 25) when you can also find out just who Exmouth Town face in arguably the Eastern Division match of the Day on the final Saturday of November.
