Paul Tisdale confident his Exeter City squad can stay up

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale says his side are good enough to stay in League One.

The Grecians are two points and two places outside of the relegation zone and face high-flying Huddersfield with new boss Simon Grayson at the helm.

"We have to look at the next 14 games and think that if we play correctly, we're going to get what we deserve," Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"Deserve would be for us to have enough points to be comfortable at the end of the year."

City's form has improved over the past three games, with wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Bury after going four matches without scoring a goal.

But Tisdale says it is crucial that his squad do not get carried away with any results they get.

"We have to be careful that we don't get sucked into every game as being the be all and end all," he added.

"We have to be careful that we don't see it as doom and gloom if we lose and euphoric if we win.

"I'm not setting any targets, I'm not setting a limit on how many games we need to win or not lose, we just have to do things correctly, act correctly and think correctly and I think we'll have enough points to be happy."

But Tisdale admits his side face a difficult challenge at Huddersfield.

"For us to get a result at somewhere like the Galpharm we have to assume that 10 if not 11 players will have to play at the top of their game," he said.

"I don't think we can go in and have four or five mediocre days in terms of performances."
