Wycombe Wanderers v City

Tis: 'I think we going into this game knowing that we are playing well but we are not taking anything for granted'

12 October 2017

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale admitted that he is well aware of his club’s recent record at Adams Park ahead of their clash with Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The Grecians have lost on their three visits to Wycombe’s ground and haven’t won there since January 2013 when a solitary goal from John O’Flynn gave them a rare victory despite having Jamie Cureton sent-off in the first half of that match.

“I’m well aware of it,” said Tis. “And that is the irony because we have played pretty well up there a few times and come unstuck.

“We have really given it a go, year after year, and the one time we have won we had 10 men.

“I don’t think John O’Flynn’s shot even hit the target. It sought of took a deflection and went in. It was the only shot we had as well and Joel Grant missed a penalty for them that day. That just shows you that in football you never quite know what is around the corner and you have got to be ready for everything.

“I think we going into this game knowing that we are playing well but we are not taking anything for granted.

“We are playing against a team that just seem to have really good history against us. They have beaten us too often in those games and we will see if this year if we can get a result.

“If we don’t it won’t be through a lack of effort and preparation but let’s be honest they are a very efficient, highly-organised team that play for their manager. 

“We all do things in our own way but I admire the way they get results and I have got a lot of respect for what they do.

“I don’t want to lose to anybody, but I have always admired how they get their performance to the maximum and expect no different this Saturday.”

Luke Croll, who was injured in the 1-0 win over Carlisle United last time out, remains a doubt for Saturday’s game while Ryan Harley and Jordan Moore-Taylor are also out injured.  

Wycombe Wanderers go into Saturday’s match fourth in the table having won their last four games. They are also just four points separating City, who are top, from Wycombe. So will three points on Saturday for the Grecian put down a marker for their promotion credentials?

“It is three points, that is all it is, said Tis. “And then we have got the same discussion for Luton Town on Tuesday night.

“It is three points and if we lose it, it doesn’t mean that’s it and the season is over. We lost against Notts County and bounced back well. It is about winning more than you lose, scoring more than you concede and over the course of the season we will look to get enough points that will secure us promotion.”

Strong defensive display earns Grecians a point at Adams Park

14 October 2017

Exeter City claimed a well-earned point against fourth-placed Wycombe Wanderers after a tight affair at Adams Park.

Both sides struggled to create a clear opening in early stages of the game, but City needed to put in a strong defensive showing in the second half to secure a valuable point away from home.

City boss, Paul Tisdale, made two changes to the side that beat Carlisle United 1-0 last time out as Jordan Tillson came in for the injured Luke Croll, and Dean Moxey made his first away league start of the season in place of Lee Holmes.

After a quiet start to the game, Wycombe had the first chance of the afternoon when Pierce Sweeney was dispossessed inside the City box. This allowed Eberechi Eze to play a dangerous ball towards the back post that was met by the head of Adebayo Akinfenwa, who steered his effort over the bar.

Soon later, Wycombe launched a free-kick from the halfway line and Christy Pym, who came out to meet the ball, only managed to punch the ball to Marcus Bean on the edge of the City box. Bean’s effort was then blocked by Sweeney and the ball was eventually cleared away.

City grew into the half as it developed and their first major chance came on the half hour mark. Hiram Boateng created some space on the edge of the Wycombe box and unleashed a fierce shot that was well-saved by Scott Brown in goal.

Moments later, City came even closer after Wycombe conceded a foul 30 yards from goal. Stockley stepped up to take the resulting free-kick but his curling effort clipped the top of the crossbar after Brown had been beaten.

City were then forced to make the game’s first change as Boateng was unable to continue after a collision with Wycombe skipper Adam El-Abd. The midfielder, who had looked lively, was replaced by Lee Holmes on the brink of half-time.

City enjoyed much of the possession after the break, and they claimed the second half’s first chance when City striker Reuben Reid nodded the ball wide after Lloyd James had played a teasing ball into the box.

At the other end, the hosts missed a golden opportunity as Eze created space in City’s penalty area and fizzed a low cross across the face of goal. Akinfenwa was faced with an empty net when he arrived at the back post to meet the ball, but he side-footed his effort just wide.

The hosts were on top in the closing stages and they thought they had won it late on when Eze fired the ball into the back of the net, but the referee had already blown his whistle for a foul on Pym in the build up.

Wycombe continued to pile on the pressure in the dying embers of the game, but the Grecians defended with resilience and held on to their clean sheet.

Exeter City: Pym; Sweeney, Brown, Tillson, Woodman, Taylor, James, Boateng (Holmes, 43), Moxey, Stockley, Reid (McAlinden, 77).

Wycombe Wanderers: Brown; Jombati (Scarr, 87), Jacobson, Stewart, El-Abd, Bean, Gape, Eze, Freeman (Southwell, 73), Akinfenwa, Mackail-Smith (Cowan-Hall, 73).

Booked: Bean

Attendance: 5,006 (500 away)
