The Opposition View - Exeter City

Following Tuesday evening`s 3-2 defeat to Exeter City at St James Park, manager Paul Tisdale expressed his happiness at his side's victory.

"The character we showed was one of the first comments the players made themselves when they came in. They are really pleased with themselves because we didn`t let our spirits drop. We started the game with an intensity and a real spark and we carried it on throughout the game. It was a good all-round performance and perhaps our best at home so far."

"A fortnight ago I wouldn`t have expected to be piecing together a frontline when we had four strikers looking on top of their game - and suddenly three are injured. Credit to Jamie (Cureton), he has been nursing a slight strain and got through it on Saturday."

"I thought Jimmy (Keohane), making his first start alongside Jamie, was outstanding. It just shows you the merit of a good squad and a purposeful reserve team because at the drop of a hat a player is needed. Jimmy didn`t make the bench two weeks ago and started today and played fantastically. Liam (Sercombe) missed today and Tommy stepped in and, as ever, he was very determined and set up our play with some lovely work."

There weren`t too many Grecians discussing their victory after the game but those that did seemed happy with the entertainment on offer and having taken another three points off the Wanderers.

A top evenings entertainment that. Feels like a bonus win considering our injury list, loved the attitude of the players, even when we went behind we never stopped playing good stuff. Nice to see the players acknowledge the supporters and involve us in their goal celebrations, not always been the case with Tisdale`s teams in the past.

Wycombe weren't much and Logie (Richard Logan) was largely anonymous as a goal threat, although he did win them about 20 free-kicks throughout the game.

Even though we went behind twice always thought we were in control and passed the ball around well all game.

Big Nose
Strange that the BBC stats suggest possession was 43-57% in their favour. It must be because as soon as they went one up they wasted time and took an age to take every restart. Got exactly what they deserved in the end.

Logie was poor tonight and based on what I saw, we will not miss him.

John William
We are still giving the ball away too much, all over the pitch. Better teams than Wycombe would have exploited this more often and we'd have struggled. However, we are clearly one of the better teams in this league. Great team spirit and effort all around, though, and how often do City win after going behind twice?

Good atmosphere despite the low turnout - but I expected a small crowd. Why do we keep over-watering the pitch? It led directly to their first goal, as Oakley slipped and they swiftly counter-attacked.
