GRECIANS BOSS DEMANDS MORE
Exeter manager Paul Tisdale wants more individual displays of excellence as his side look to avoid relegation from League One.
The Grecians sit six points from safety after a 2-0 defeat at Tranmere on Saturday, during which Tisdale - who could not question his players' work rate - thought only half his team put in the calibre of shift needed to drag the Devon club away from danger.
He told the Western Morning News: "There were some good performances and, if we are looking at today in isolation, then there was some effort.
"But we are still looking to create goals and score them. We didn't really engineer too many opportunities but we gave it a good go and there were four or five excellent performances on the pitch. But we need eight or nine before we can start stringing wins together, which is what we desperately need.
"The players are certainly not giving anything less than 100 per cent, and it is just a question of whether we are playing well enough. There are a number of factors in that, we have been better than we have been at times in recent games but it wasn't quite good enough on Saturday.
"We are certainly not getting any luck but I don't think we are being particularly unlucky either. Again, we need eight or nine players playing at the top of their game for us to turn these draws or losses into wins and we are not quite there."
