Exeter City winger Lee Holmes says the club is starting to build some momentum after registering back-to-back wins.

Holmes returned from injury to score in Tuesday's 2-0 win at Mansfield to see City win successive matches in League Two for the second time this season.

"We've been on the tipping point for a while, we've been drawing games that we perhaps should have seen out," he said.

"It's nice to put a bit of a run together and go onto the next game and do the same," Holmes added.

"There's a little bit of momentum building and it's up to us now to kick on," the former Preston winger told BBC Radio Devon.

Holmes was one of four changes to the side which beat League Two leaders and Exeter's fierce rivals Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, having missed a month through injury.

The two wins have lifted Exeter up to 10th place in League Two, one point off the play-off places.

"My match fitness is not quite there, but I felt good tonight," Holmes said.

"I got 65 minutes under my belt which will stand me in good stead going forward.

"We've got strength in depth, the manager's made four changes and if you can do things like that and still feel strong you're in a good place.

"The one thing is we're going into the winter knowing we've got a really good squad, everyone can play their part, everyone will play their part I'm sure.

"It's up to everyone to come in, like Joel (Grant) did today and Alex (Nicholls) and Tom (Nichols) and everyone that puts on their shirt on the Saturday makes sure they give their performance and I think that's what's happened in the last two games."
