Edwards - Thrilled With Scunthorpe Victory

Assistant manager Rob Edwards has expressed his delight at seeing Exeter close out our home season with a victory over promoted Scunthorpe Town.

It was always going to be a tough encounter given the relative form of both sides, but we were up for the game and brought their unbeaten run to an end to give us a hugely valuable victory and all three points.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Edwards said it was probably our most complete performance of the entire season and he knows that if we can make that kind of showing our bedrock next season, then we could well be in for some smiles ourselves.

'It's a relief, we've been looking at the league table for a long time an we've been getting closer to it, it's a big relief, but what a great performance and at the right time. We haven't always played like that with the intensity and the drive, so it was a fantastic performance. The players were really on top of their game and determined, we didn't look like conceding, and we were together.'

The win of course secures our League Two status for next season and we can go into the Hartlepool game next week without any concerns at all.

Edwards says the plan now is to take that kind of performance into the game and try and give ourselves some really good momentum for next season because nobody has wanted to struggle as we have done this campaign, so he knows the players will go into training this week full of focus and on a high following that win, and they'll be doing all they can to finish the season with another victory.

'I don't understand how we've got ourselves so close to the bottom, with some of the players we've got. We're a decent team, we just need to improve in both boxes. I know it sounds basic, but that's something we've got to be better at next year.'

Jimmy Keohane also believes that better things should be in store for us next season and he said in his own after match interview.

'It was a really good performance, we've done that a few times this year, all that has really been lacking is a bit of consistency. Hopefully we can carry that into next season and we'll only go from strength to strength in the coming years.'
