💬 Gary Caldwell post Plymouth Argyle (A)

City boss has his say on Derby defeat

31 October 2022

Exeter City Manager Gary Caldwell has given his reaction as City fell to a 4-2 defeat in Devon Derby action at Home Park.

City twice took the lead, but went behind thanks to substitue Ryan Hardies double.

"The result is disappointing as we came here to win the game," said the City boss. "We didn't hold onto the lead for long enough both times.

"I was happy with the performance, we caused them a lot of problems and looked comfortable on the ball and had a real threat on the counter attack and scored two brilliant goals and took the lead twice, but the dissapointing thing is we didn't hold onto the lead both times for long enough.

"That is probably a lesson we need to learn, when we do go in front we need to try and control the game and almost push home that advantage. We allowed them back in the game twice.

"It's never nice to lose football matches, the players are hurting, we're hurting as staff but we have to take the positive out of it and work on the little things we can do better."
