Exeter City chairman: 'we've got an exceptional manager'

Julian Tagg, Exeter City chairman

Exeter City's chairman has praised manager Paul Tisdale after a convincing 3-0 win against Colchester, which has boosted their play-off ambitions.

Julian Tagg heralded the turnaround which has seen the Grecians restore their home form and climb 14 places to 9th in League 2.

"It was important that we didn't panic. And if you're doing the right things every day, eventually it's going to come right - and that's what happened", he said.

Tagg also told ITV News he was pleased with the way the fans backed the manager: "There's an awful lot of fans who stayed behind him."

"We've got an exceptional manager in every way. It's a difficult position he sits in because in one respect the most important thing is the next result, but also he has to have an eye on bringing through the next young players."

Exeter City's next game is away at Portsmouth.
