Tisdale Reflects On Cup Exit
Paul Tisdale reflects on Exeter's FA Cup exit.
The Exeter manager says that Northern League Division One side Curzon Ashton deserved their 3-2 win, which left him bitterely disappointed: 'I'm very disappointed but I think they thoroughly deserved their win,' Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon. 'We didn't have any spark in the first half.'
Some might feel that Exeter took their part-time opponents, some 100 places below them in the league pyramid lightly, but he insists that was not the case, adding: 'The first half wasn't good enough and I told the players so, but we didn't approach this game with anything other than the upmost respect for the tie.
'Their first goal came out of nothing, it was a huge deflection but that's what happens in these type of games.
'I didn't think they were a good side. They were an average side who had a good plan and we made our own mistakes.'
