Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale was proud of the way his team performed in their 3-1 win over Rochdale.

City came back from a goal down at St James Park to register their second win since September and end a three-match losing run.

"I'm very proud of them because when you're bottom of the league and you go a goal down, there's a part of you saying 'here we go again'," he said.

"But they didn't, they just kept going," he added on BBC Radio Devon.

"It is the win but it's also the way we came back from being a goal down.

"It's the way we did it off the back of basics and hard work, and we turned the game around. We've got to turn our form around on Tuesday."

Tisdale also singled out the club's supporters for the way they cheered on City.

"It was a real big effort from them and long may it continue," he added.

"Whether we climb the league or we stay where we are, we need that and it makes such a difference not hearing the frustration and groans of disappointment."
