Paul Tisdale expects Exeter City goals to come

Tisdale's side has not conceded a goal in more than 300 minutes of football

Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale says he expects his side to start scoring goals soon after a second successive 0-0 draw, the latest at Oldham on Saturday.

The result extended the Grecians' unbeaten run to four games, but Tisdale's side have scored just three goals in that time.

He told BBC Radio Devon: "We haven't scored many goals recently but the way we're playing I see that changing soon.

"Hopefully our unbeaten run will maybe turn into a winning run," he added.

"Our chaps were particularly focused, and applied themselves and really dug in.

"Do I think we could have got the points? Yes, we could have done and should have done," he said.

But Tisdale was pleased that his defence kept another clean sheet.

City have not conceded in their last three games and have seen just one goal scored past them this year, in the 1-1 draw with Yeovil on 2 January.

"Another clean sheet, three-in-a-row and I'm more than happy with the way the players are applying themselves.

"We're playing well and it builds confidence.

"On the whole we looked a very competent side, not perfect, but certainly competitive."
