Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale 'grumpy' about losing leads

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says "everyone is grumpy" about the club dropping points from winning positions in their last two league matches.

The Devon side are mid-table in League Two, but would have been in the play-off positions had they held onto leads against Newport and Stevenage.

"We're not taking that lightly but you have to move on and understand why it's happened," Tisdale told BBC Devon.

"You do as much as you can, set it, and move on and that's what we're doing."

Exeter go to Carlisle on Saturday, who themselves went ahead in their last game against Morecambe before losing 3-2.

Tisdale has injury doubts over Matt Oakley, Manny Oyeleke and Ryan Harley ahead of the clash, while Will Hoskins returns after a back problem.

"It makes everyone grumpy when you get draws from a position you feel you should've won," added Tisdale.

"Sometimes it's just good play, a terrific goal or a great free-kick, but sometimes it's things we think we could've done better at.

"It's a combination of the two and you have to be practical about it."
