Tis looking for more of the same against Crawley Town

Grecians looking to bounce back from Saturday's defeat to Chesterfield

18 Hours ago

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale is calling for more of the same tonight as the Grecians travel to the Checkatrade.com Stadium to face Crawley Town.

City were beaten 1-0 away at bottom-of-the-table Chesterfield last time out but manager Paul Tisdale was pleased with the way his side played. 

“I was disappointed to lose, but I was delighted with the performance,” he said. “I was pleased with the discipline, the positional play and the attitude of the players.

“The details were pretty, pretty good today. They were not perfect but I have very little to moan about other than we conceded a goal from a set play and we didn’t take our chances.

“However, you don’t always get what you want or what you deserve. We were playing against a team who wanted their win – like every team we play against. However, it is not about how much you want to win, it is about whether you know how to and whether you can.

“I think today we showed we knew how to, we just didn’t finish things off and we conceded a corner which changed the game.

“I thought we were nicely placed in the match before that. Most of the players looked really comfortable and disciplined in their positions and how they acted with each other and I have got every little to moan about. We just move onto the next game now – Crawley on Tuesday night – and continue with the same.”

Crawley Town head into the match on the back of one win in their last 11 games.

Crawley manager Harry Kewell admitted Tuesday night’s game was a big match, especially as they lost 4-0 away at Wycombe Wanderers last time out.

“It’s a big game – as they all are – but even more so perhaps bearing in mind how Saturday ended,” said Kewell.

“The things that didn’t do so well we’ve worked on in the last 48 hours. Exeter will be a good test for us. They have got some real quality and obviously a manager (Paul Tisdale) who knows this league inside out.

"I feel what we have to do is play with the same tempo we showed in the second half in our last home game against Forest Green.

“That was the type of performance I want to see from my team. On the front foot, creating chances and getting the fans behind us.’

Crawley Town 3 City 1

Grecians slip to successive defeats

Exeter City fell to a 3-1 defeat away to Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two.

Despite Dean Moxey putting the Grecians ahead in the first half, a leveller from Josh Payne and two goals from substitute Jordan Roberts secured the win for Harry Kewell’s side on a disappointing night for City.

Paul Tisdale made three changes to the side that were narrowly beaten by Chesterfield last weekend as Lloyd James, Kyle Edwards and Reuben Reid all came into the starting line up in place of Lee Holmes, Jayden Stockley and Liam McAlinden.

An entertaining first half saw the home side begin well as they created a number of early chances with Josh Payne doing well to conduct things for Town.

Their first real attempt at goal came on ten minutes when Payne started off a good move before arriving at the edge of the Grecians’ box to shoot wide under pressure from the City defence.

Christy Pym was then forced into a smart save from Payne down low, after Pierce Sweeney did well to block from Enzio Boldewijn.

The Grecians’ first opportunity came after 17 minutes after the lively Kyle Edwards did well to cut in from the right to fire in a low cross, which took two deflections, before Glenn Norris pounced on the ball before Jake Taylor could poke home.

City then took the lead on 24 minutes stemming from more good play from Edwards on the right. The winger did well to cross low towards Reuben Reid, whose shot was going just wide, but for Moxey who slid in at the far post to give City the advantage.

With the home side more than likely feeling slightly aggrieved after creating the majority of the chances, they were awarded a penalty just after the half hour mark when Craig Woodman was penalised for a foul in the box on Josh Yorwerth as the home side attacked a corner kick.

Payne then stepped up to coolly convert the spot kick past Pym to level the match. More half chances fell for City as the busy Reid looked to burst through the defence on the edge of the box, but his shot was blocked well for a City corner meaning the sides would go into the break level.

The early stages of the second half began cagey with neither side creating many clear cut chances in the opening minutes.

But it was the home side who took the initiative on the hour mark when a quick move on the left side saw Cedric Evina shoot at goal, but Pym’s save could only fall into the path of substitute Roberts who fired in at the far post.

City then looked to the substitutes bench as Jayden Stockley and Kane Wilson entered the match as Paul Tisdales side searched for a way back.

The home side then secured their third, and Roberts’ second, when the Town number 11 stepped up to place a free-kick past Pym from a tight angle to give Kewell’s side a comfortable lead.

City kept pushing, but credit to the home side who defended well and kept possession for long spells late on.

The Grecians will now look to bounce back from consecutive defeats against Accrington Stanley at St James Park on Saturday.
