Following yesterday's soul-sapping 2-2 draw with Exeter City, here are some views on the game from the Grecians' manager Paul Tisdale and a few of their fans.


Tisdale was still excited by his side's comeback when he spoke to the BBC.

"I've not quite settled down yet," he said. "It was such a traumatic end to the game that it's going to be a little while before it settles down and we look at the game objectively and assess and evaluate our performance, but as I stand here at the moment, I'm delighted with the team's spirit and gumption and drive to come back into the game."

"We looked dead and buried. It was a vital point gained but it was also a vital two points taken off their total as well. It was the proverbial six-pointer today so it's more than a point for us," said Tisdale.

Describing the game itself, he said: "A fantastic comeback. A dullish first half - We were considered and controlled which is what I wanted from the side, but we didn't really get going and their goals sparked us into action."

The Exeter boss summed up his feelings as follows:

"I'm going away from today's game delighted with the team and delighted with their comeback. A brilliant comeback. What an important point and what fantastic support from our following. I'm delighted for them, and what an exciting finish to come away with a deserved point which looked nigh on impossible with twenty minutes to go. It was a good day to be an Exeter supporter. They saw their team have a real comeback, show lots of fight, and they must think that we've got plenty of fight left in us. This team's not finished yet."



The Exeter fans were also delighted and not particularly surprised by their team's recovery from two goals down.

'We were clearly the better team throughout and I never felt remotely worried that we would lose. Wycombe were so poor we hardly needed to break into a sweat. That's why it was so bizarre to be two-nil down to the worst team I've seen all season when we weren't even playing badly.'



Mr Jinks wrote:
'We could have won the game easily had our defence not fallen asleep for 15 minutes after the break.'

'Overall I thought Wycombe were poor, and if we had been more positive throughout we would have won.'



Hants Red wrote:
'A fluent City easily moved the ball around and I couldn't see how Wycombe would score, but we made mistakes and got punished. Nervous few minutes at the end and two points lost, but feels like a win having pulled ourselves back from 2-0 down.'



Tisdale_In_Training wrote:
'Bit of a dull first half but livened up in the second. Sercombe was superb and topped it off with a wonder strike. I'd like to see if Beavon's goal was offside because it looked a bit dubious. If only we had played for the whole game like we did for 30 mins in the second half, we would have smashed them.'



Red Box wrote:
'Although delighted at the end to come away with a late equaliser, I feel it was another one of those games where, if we had imposed ourselves more it would have been three points.'



Martin Lawrence wrote:
'The goals they scored were complete and utter gifts from us. Despite being 2-0 down though, I always felt we could get something from the game, as Wycombe - like Torquay in the playoffs, just sat back and let us play...Thank you Wycombe.'



David Treharne wrote:
'Andy and I had a meeting with the Wycombe Trust, one of whom has a box. They entertained us really well and asked us a multitude of questions about ECFC Trust. It looks as though they'll be moving to a 25,000 seater stadium further out of town - on top of a hill, so that they can better accommodate their ground share with Wasps. The Trustees fear a 'Darlington like' situation developing.'



Oli wrote:
'How many people do Wasps get?'



denzel wrote:
'Surely 'London Wasps' should find somewhere closer to London to develop? I fear another Stockport / Sale Sharks scenario. Despite the strange location, it would seem that Wycombe's ground is perfectly acceptable, and I would really question the need for anything bigger.'
