💬 Aaron Martin: "I think that we have still got so much more to bring yet."

City defender pleased with start to the season but thinks Grecians have more to give

1 October 2018

Defender Aaron Martin believes there is more to come from Exeter City despite the side stretching their unbeaten run to six matches.

The Grecians face Stevenage at home on Tuesday night, having won their last three matches at St James Park. 

City sit third in the table, while Stevenage are fourth. And while Aaron believes the side should be pleased with their current position in the table he says they have the ability to push forward and play even better than they have been. 

“I still think that we have still got so much more to bring yet,” said Aaron. “I think there is more to come from us performance-wise and hopefully over the next few games we will start picking up again and playing even better than we have been. 

“We have got such a good team here and there has been spells where we have been very good and I think we can be even better. Everyone strives to be even better here and that ethos the club has got, makes me think we are definitely pushing in the right direction.” 

Stevenage will be no easy game though. They are unbeaten in four themselves and, with City having conceded a late equaliser last time out at Port Vale, they will need to pick themselves up quickly for the task in front of them. 

“They (Stevenage) look good in the clips that we have seen,” said Aaron. “It is another tough game that we need to be right up for. We need to forget about Saturday, take the positives from that game and go again. We just take every game as it comes and as long as we keep playing as well as we have been, we should be okay.” 

Speaking about the goal they conceded at Port Vale, Aaron added: “I think Port Vale should take a little bit of credit for it because it is the first corner that we have conceded from this season. 

“I can’t fully remember the goal and I will need to watch it back again, but I think it was just a lot of congestion, a lot of people in the box and it just fell to one of them instead of us which is unfortunate. It was a really frustrating way to end the game. 

“It has been unfortunate that we haven’t kept as many clean sheets as we would have liked but we have been the goals against down to a minimum. 

“So as long as we keep doing our part and the boys keep doing there’s then it is a really good mix.”
