Jordan Tillson: “At the moment there is so many games to play that anything can happen"

Jordan Tillson discusses City's recent form and looks ahead to the visit of Carlisle United at St James Park

Exeter City midfielder Jordan Tillson says the Grecians have everything to play for as they continue their push for promotion from Sky Bet League Two.

Following a good run of form, which has seen City record two consecutive wins away from home, Tillson says the Grecians are looking forward to playing their next match, given their previous game was postponed due to the recent snowy weather.

He said: “We’ve got another game to catch up on now. We want to keep playing football and continue the run of form that we’ve been on recently.

“At the moment there is so many games to play that anything can happen. If you put a good run together then you can be right amongst the top teams, which is what we want to do.”

Recent wins over Crewe Alexandra and Grimsby Town have given Paul Tisdale’s side a real boost as they sit sixth in the league table with at least one game in hand on their promotion rivals.

And following Jayden Stockley’s injury time winner against Crewe, Tillson admits the goal created a great deal of positivity amongst the squad, he said: “A late winner creates a lot of energy in the changing room. It’s good to get a late win because it’s better than drawing, three points is a big thing and we want to keep on that role.”

The Grecians welcome Carlisle United to St James Park this Saturday in what will be the first of two home matches. With City having won 13 games in all competitions at home this season, Tillson admits the Grecians have reason to be confident going into the match with Keith Curle’s side.

He continued: “We’ve had good home form this year and we want to keep that going, we’ve got a lot of games coming up, this month in particular at St James Park, so it’s important that we keep that form.”
