Exeter City Manager Matt Taylor reflects on an emphatic performance against Grimsby, as Exeter come from behind to beat the 10 men.

Alex Fisher and Ryan Bowman's late goals helped City secure a much needed win to keep their play-off hopes alive.

On his team selection, which had five changes from Saturday, Matt said, “I picked the team simply because of legs and energy, and to keep it fresh”

Reflecting on the general performance, Matt said, "until we went behind, I thought we were playing well… we should have been ahead at half time.

“Obviously the sending off helped us, it kept us level with what we needed to do."

After bringing goal scorer Alex Fisher the shape changed for City, which enabled their late comeback.

"The space was always going to be on the outside when they went down and it was the obvious decision, which why we went to a back three,” Matt added.
