Tis - Clearly There Is Still Work To Be Done

Tis - Clearly There Is Still Work To Be Done

Manager Paul Tisdale has said that Exeter clearly still have a lot of work to do after watching us slip to our fourth league defeat in a row.

The 3-1 loss to Rochdale yesterday is actually our fifth straight loss in all competitions and the gaffer was obviously very dissatisfied come the final whistle.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game it was again the same issues that dominated the gaffers after match interviews.

'You wouldn't be surprised if I said I'm disappointed. I'm always disappointed as I always believe we have a chance in any game. We're having a tough time, certain things we do aren't connected, but we were okay today.'

Tisdale goes on to say that after 30 minutes we were well in the game, just like we were at Peterborough and other recent games and he knows exactly what we need to do because he knows what we are capable of doing, but it just isn't clicking on the pitch how it should do.

'We have some work to do, I'm well aware of that. We've had a rotten run but I didn't dislike the players today, they always give everything and we had good support. We showed a good reaction at half time, we looked purposeful and spirited, but we conceded softly.'

Some would say the turning point was the hand ball appeal early on the game, but the officials weren't impressed with the shout and Tisdale refused to put any stock in that because it was a single moment and he's far more concerned with the errors we made over the course of 90 minutes. Because one potentially bad call doesn't dictate a game.

Although admitted he thought it was a fair shout even if the officials didn't.

Onto Wycombe now and if not a victory, at the very least let's bring this losing streak to an end with a share of the points.
