Point Was No Less Than We Deserved

Point Was No Less Than We Deserved

Manager Paul Tisdale has said that the point away from home against Burton Albion last weekend was the least that we deserved from the game following our performance.

Exeter took the lead through a Burton own goal but unfortunately only held the lead for around two minutes before they equalised, however chances were pretty level throughout the game, so it was a hard earned point in the gaffers mind and he told the Official Site.

'I'm very pleased with the way we played. It was a very committed performance, and I felt that we shared the energy out and every player contributed. It was a team performance and we thoroughly deserved a draw out of the game.'

Tisdale goes on to say that he said to the lads in the dressing room following the game that we are being made to work hard for the points at the moment, but he has every faith that there will come a point, and soon, where things fall for us more consistently and games appear to go our way with more ease.

He also goes on to say that he appreciates we are still a bit patient and tentative in the final third, but given the run that we have been on when it comes to actually winning games, that is to be expected from a team, and that's something that will improve in time as more goes our way and the confidence and belief the players have becomes more natural and they return more to a playing high.

'I hope I'm not looking through rose tinted glasses, but I think we shaded the flow of the game with our play around the pitch and we were a touch quicker to the ball.'

With that said though, Tisdale more than admits that over the course of 90 minutes either team really could've won it given the chances that were on offer, however he definitely feels that Artur Krysiak had more of a break during the game given the chances we hit at the other third.
