Following yesterday's 1-1 draw at Exeter City, here are some views on the game from the Grecians' manager Paul Tisdale and a few of their fans.


Speaking to BBC Radio Devon, Tisdale said he was disappointed to be a goal behind at half-time: "We were brighter, quicker to the ball, played in their half against a very strong wind and it was a cheap goal to give away," he said.

Relieved not to lose the game, the Grecians boss said: "I thought it was a very purposeful performance and what feels like a very good point now with a late goal, so yes, I'm satisfied with it."

Paying tribute to his team's staying power, he added: "If there's one overriding positive about our season so far, it's our ability to be strong in the last ten minutes of the game and we saw that again today. We could have even won it in the last couple of minutes."


The Exeter fans were delighted to salvage a point but unimpressed with either side's performance.

The following extracts are taken from 'exeweb' and 'The Football Forum'.

"Very poor performance today, especially the first half. The team looked bereft of ideas and very weak in midfield. Possession was given away cheaply and only a great save from Marriot in the first half kept us in the game. On this showing We're set for a long hard winter."



Macca wrote:
"However disappointing and depressing our performance was today, we must remember that if it wasn't for Scott Shearer making three top class saves, we would have earned 3 points whilst playing possibly our worst football this season."

"We were utterly dire before the break and lucky not to be 2 or 3 down."

"City were poor and Wycombe even worse. I think both teams will go down unless significant changes are made."

"A promotion too far unfortunately. These were two poor sides today in a game that was not much better than Conference standard."



Exehausted wrote:
"Shearer made two good stops that were far from routine and many a keeper would have let them in. His save that gave us the corner from which we scored was fantastic. He looked well hacked off when Corr scored and it was from close in so I'm surprised that he didn't cut out the cross."

"The game was passable but certainly no classic. Wycombe looked a lot more comfortable on the ball, especially in the first half, but then we came into it a lot more in the second half. A hell of a save from Marriott stopped a certain second goal for Wycombe and kept us in it, and top marks to Scott Shearer at the other end who kept them in the match with great saves too."

"Poor game, felt more like 3 hours than 90 minutes of football."



Exehausted wrote:
"The reason that they stayed in it for me was Michael Duberry. He read the game so well and although it seemed all his tackles were made only just in time, the ball always went to one of his players. He back headed the ball without looking but it fell to one of theirs. He stabbed at balls but it always ran to one of theirs. It looked like luck but it couldn't have been, nobody gets that lucky. I thought that Duberry was the best player on the pitch."



Sturtz wrote:
"Two pretty poor teams fighting out a midfield stalemate with few chances on goal at either end. Both attacks fairly ineffective but Wycombe were playing the better game, holding the ball better."



grecIAN Harris wrote:
"Let's be blunt. That game had nil nil written all over had it not been for the penalty. Neither side looked capable of scoring. If ever there was a game where neither side deserved any points that was it."



denzel ecfc wrote:
"Thought it was a fair result - Wycombe clearly 'bossed' the first half and we did the second, but it was poor fare to be honest. First half, we wanted to bypass midfield and our only attacks went down the sides. We didn't have any real chances, yet Wycombe had three or four including the penalty which was rightly given. Thought both teams looked nervous and Wycombe then committed the cardinal sin of hanging on too much and assuming we had nothing left in the tank."
