Exeter boss Paul Tisdale hailed new loan signing Matt Oakley for his debut performance in their win over Oldham.

It was City's first victory in League Two since they beat Chesterfield 2-1 at the end of August.

"He added value right across the pitch and it's hard to quantify that," Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"As a manager it is spectacular, as a punter he had a clinical game, but it was a wonderful debut in terms of helping and adding value to the team."

He added: "It was a marvellous performance when you consider the anxiety going into the game and what we produced.

"There's been a tipping point this week, not just players into the side, but the type of work we've done this week, and it followed into the game."
