Tisdale hails crucial victory

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale was relieved that his side recorded their first home victory of the season. The Grecians beat faltering Tranmere Rovers 2-1 at St. James Park with a brace from the returning Adam Stansfield.

Home form will be crucial to City`s fortunes this season and Tisdale told the official site, "It was a big relief not just for the 11 players on the pitch but everyone off it and in the stands". City`s lead was halved when Michael Ricketts pulled a goal back for John Barnes` side mid way through the second half, but despite some nervy moments City held on for the win. "There was a feeling of relief because we desperately needed the three points" the City boss added.

It is hard to believe this was City`s first win at home since last Easter`s crucial 1-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers, and Tisdale went onto say it "it was more about the result today than the performance". He also went onto stress that his new team was still to settle, and believed that the Grecians would improve in the second half of the season, as has been the case in his previous three seasons. "I have no reason to believe we won`t play to form and be stronger in the second half of the season, that is the norm with us". With this theory, this could mean a period of remaining competitive up until the New Year, where City will aim to elevate themselves into mid-table obscurity - something which we haven`t experienced for a very long time! But of course nobody truly knows where this season will take us. Let`s just enjoy it!
