Manager Paul Tisdale has again been left bemoaning another disappointing night for Exeter City following the defeat to York City yesterday.

Making the trip to Bootham Crescent for the game, and with the gaffer already calling on the side pre match to show a reaction and bounce back after the Wycombe Wanderers loss at the weekend, a two nil defeat saw Exeter travel home once more with nothing to show for their efforts.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game press interviews, the gaffer explained.

‘The result was obviously very disappointing. It was a good pitch to play on, and conditions were good. I thought that we started extremely well, and in the first half, the only blip as far as our performance was concerned was their goal. Goals do make a difference in football matches. We had two or three excellent chances and didn`t score, and they`ve taken their chance. The performance had been excellent – we were quick to the ball and competitive, but I think we finished flat again, and I don`t have an answer for why that was. I didn`t see the sort of response that I wanted from the team, and I`m disappointed with how we reacted to being behind.’

Tisdale went on to talk about the opportunities we did have to get on the scoresheet and lift ourselves in search of the response he wanted, and he referenced Jordan Tillson’s blocked effort and his frustration is, even though performances could be better, he knows we are getting the chances to take points from games but we keep slipping further away from those Play Off spots at the minute.

‘It doesn`t take Einstein to work out that the team and myself are very disappointed.’

One thing Tisdale wouldn’t do as he ended his interview was overplay the weekend games importance now because that’s not pressure we need on ourselves – it is however another opportunity to put things right and get back on track.

‘Saturday`s game is no more important now than if we had won at York – but it is another crucial three points on offer for us. I cannot criticise the way the players started the game tonight – there was no apathy or laziness, but somehow we`ve managed to come away with no points from the last couple of games.’
