Paul Tisdale baffled by 'flat' Exeter City comebacks

Having won their previous three League Two games, Paul Tisdale's side have failed to score in their last two losses

Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says he does not know why his team have been "flat" when trying to come from behind in their last two games.

City were beaten 2-0 at York on Tuesday, having lost 1-0 at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday in League Two.

"I thought we finished flat again, I don't know why," he told BBC Devon.

"I think we've played very well for the first half, gone a goal down and I didn't see the sort of response I wanted from the team."

The 43-year-old added: "I'm culpable for the result and the players are accountable for their results within."

The two defeats mean Exeter stay in 13th place in League Two, eight points off the play-off places.

"Our season's not over, but we've got to find a way of doing better in the circumstances," Tisdale said.

"I cannot criticise the way the players started the game, there's been no apathy or a lazy starts in either of the two games this week we've lost.

"Both games we've been at it, but somehow we've managed to come away with no points."
