Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale has praised the contribution of goalkeeper Artur Krysiak after his side's 0-0 draw with Scunthorpe.

The 22-year-old from Poland made a series of good saves as City kept their second successive home clean sheet.

"He was our man of the match, our player that performed very close to his maximum," Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"I like some of the things I'm seeing with him and he's got a real talent," Tisdale added.

Krysiak joined Exeter on a free transfer from Birmingham City in the summer of 2010 after loan spells at five clubs including Motherwell, Swansea City and a season at Burton Albion.

He has established himself as City's first choice ahead of Lenny Pidgeley after spending much of last season as understudy to on-loan Reading goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

"He's certainly the most athletic goalkeeper that I've seen or had the benefit of working with here at Exeter in the last six years," Tisdale said.

"He gets his fingertips to things that you think are going in and he certainly contributed to the clean sheet."

The game saw Richard Duffy, Daniel Nardiello and Guillem Bauza all make comebacks for City off the bench after returning to full fitness.

"There were players back on the pitch that we've not had for a while so there's a few things I can look at and come away being positive about," Tisdale said.

"But in terms of our performance it wasn't the best, we did enough for a draw but you can't get it too good every time."
