Exeter City Manager Paul Tisdale refused to criticise his players following their latest defeat to AFC Wimbledon at St James’ Park on Bank Holiday Monday.
Goals from Dons’ strikers Tom Elliott and Lyle Taylor within the first half hour of the match effectively ended the contest as The Grecians were comprehensively beaten. Despite the home side’s uninspiring performance Manager Paul Tisdale denied that his side had underperformed.
Exeter City face Premier League giants Liverpool at St James’ Park in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup next month and The Grecians have lost all 3 league matches since the glamorous FA Cup tie was announced.
After a solid start to the season The Grecians have slipped down the table in recent weeks although the 30 point return from their first 23 league matches represents another solid campaign under the guidance of long serving Manager Paul Tisdale.
Tisdale has worked wonders while in charge of the fan owned club, guiding City to two promotions despite the Board’s cautious management of the club’s playing budget. Tisdale recorded an excellent top half of the table finish last season despite not being able to sign any players last summer with the club having been placed under a transfer embargo which was not lifted until the season had started.
