Tisdale keen to put Cup exit behind him

Tisdale keen to put Cup exit behind him

Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale is confident that his side can overturn rivals Plymouth Argyle in this weeks JPT clash at Home Park.

This despite The Grecian`s losing five of their last six games in all competitions.

In recent weeks defending set pieces has proved a real Achilles heal for the Grecians. They have slipped into the bottom half of the table and crashed out of the FA Cup as a result of such short comings.

But manager Tisdale remains upbeat, he told thisisexeter.co.uk….

We have to remain confident. A lot's changed in two weeks but we have to remember that we are a good side - it's just been a glum past fortnight.

'The danger is to look too deeply into things and lose faith with what you're doing or lose faith in the players. We can't become anxious as a team. A challenge like this, with a succession of defeats in a short space of time in games away from home, you need to stay strong in your own mind.

'It needs to be said, it's not as if we haven't worked on set-pieces or made it an issue. We have made it a big issue and I have really worked hard on it. I have done as much as I can possibly do to highlight the problem.

'Hopefully it's a blip. It's a rut we have got ourselves into and we have got to respond.

'Bury played well, gave us a hard game but they have scored from two set-pieces, so it doesn't matter what game you play in, what competition you play in, what shape you play in, what system you play in, home or away it's still a set-piece. The players need to rise to the challenge and it's something we have got to do better at.'
