Paul Tisdale after the match had this to say:-
It’s a positive point off the back of a poor run of results. We needed something tonight and we got it.
Arguably we put enough into the game that I don’t think we would have been lucky if we had won it. We put a lot of effort into that and had a lot of positive play and did the pushing for most of the game.
It was unlucky – it’s not something I talk about very often. It was a shot on goal from 25 yards out – it’s not lucky that they’re there, as we have allowed a shot. But you don’t often get such a big, solid deflection that it leaves the goalkeeper stranded.
It was part of our preparation. We’ve got our way and other teams have their way, and that’s how it can be and should be, and I’m comfortable with that. Sometimes it’s not always possible to beat teams your own way. We had to go into the game ready for the battle and be up for it; it was a very combative game and I don’t think our players came out second best at all. In many ways, we competed just as heavily if not more than they did.
I didn’t want us to beat them with just football. I wanted us to match them first, and we did – so well done to the lads. They’re proper people and are desperate to do well for the team, themselves and the club. They wanted it so much today.
First half I thought we were the better team by a long way. In the second half they (Exeter) smelled blood and got their equaliser.
It’s frustrating that we didn’t take our chances. It’s small margins! I thought we edged it. We were the ones that were forcing a win.
