Following the completion of Round Two of the 2019/20 Leasing.com Trophy, Exeter City’s Dino Visser has been named as the Player of the Round.
Fans were given the chance to vote for the player who they thought deserves the trophy at EFL.com/playeroftheround and those who voted for Visser have been placed into a draw, with the winner taking home some fantastic signed merchandise.
Exeter faced a tough tie following their advancement from the Group Stages, with Oxford United their opponents at St James Park. Not content with a series of superb reaction stops which earned Exeter a 0-0 scoreline after 90 minutes, Visser proved unbeatable again in the penalty shootout, saving all three spot-kicks he faced.
On winning the Leasing.com Trophy Player of the Round, Visser commented: “I was delighted to win the award. I wasn’t expecting it and the competition has provided a great opportunity for someone like myself who hasn’t been starting too much in the league, so it was great to get some game time against quality opposition like Oxford, and it was one of those days that worked out well for the team.”
Exeter have now been drawn against Sky Bet League One high-flyers Ipswich Town in the last 16 as the club look to advance to the Quarter-Finals.
Visser added: “It’s going to be a really tough game. They’ve been in good form in the league. We’re happy to have the game at home, I’m sure our supporters are going to come out and really push us. We’ve got a lot of games before that yet, but like I said we know it’ll be a tough game and one we look forward to.”
