Plenty left for Exeter to play for - Paul Tisdale

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale insists the club will not lose focus for their last two matches, despite the play-offs being out of reach.

A 4-0 defeat away at Tranmere Rovers on Monday means City are now six points adrift of the play-off berths.

Tisdale said: "We've still got plenty to play for over the rest of the season with the derby next week and a great trip away to Sheffield Wednesday.

"I still have my sights set on finishing as high as possible."

Before travelling to Tranmere the Grecians were only two points behind the play-offs, however, results elsewhere, including Bournemouth 's late 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers effectively ended the Devon club's hopes of reaching the top six.

Tisdale told BBC Devon: "It's not today's fault that we find ourselves just out of the play-offs, we've had other games this year that it's more appropriate to pick fault at.

"I'm very proud of the way the players have played this year and how many results we've gained and where we sit in the table, we've come on a lot from last year."

Exeter finished last season only one point and three places outside the League One relegation zone.
