Tis: There’s very little I can say to criticise the players

Paul Tisdale gave his thoughts on City's 2-2 draw with Crawley Town

21 April 2018

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale was happy with his side’s display despite the Grecians being left frustrated by a 2-2 draw with Crawley Town.

City fell behind to an Emile Boldewijn strike before they levelled through Jayden Stockley just before half-time. The Grecians went in front through another Stockley goal just before the hour mark, but Josh Yorwerth nodded home at the back post to earn Harry Kewell’s side a point.

After the match, Tis said: “It was a great game, we played really well, I’m really proud of my team.”

He also eluded to the performance of Crawley goalkeeper, Glenn Morris, who made a string of saves to deny the Grecians all three points.

He said: “It’s very rare a goalkeeper has that kind of performance, and I think their keeper had one of those today.

“Their keeper had an outstanding game, you have to congratulate the game he had. We did everything but win it today, we’ve got a point, but we wanted three. A really great game and there’s very little I can say to criticise the players.”

Tis was also keen to stress that there is still much to play for as we go into the final two matches of the season, as the Grecians have reduced the gap to one point between themselves and Wycombe Wanderers.

He continued: “We can’t get too up, and I’m talking about the dressing room, and hopefully everyone else will take a lead on that. There is a lot of football to go yet before we get anywhere near finding out where we finish. One minute you think you’re doing great, the next you’re disappointed. On both scores you have to stay cool and level headed.

“One game at a time. If we win at Stevenage next week then we are still in it until the last game. That’s what we have to do. “
