Paul Tisdale is optimistic Exeter’s long awaited home win is coming after his side impressively won away again this weekend.
The Grecians thumped Morecambe 3-0 on Saturday, with first-half goals from David Wheeler, Joel Grant and Lee Holmes securing an important three points and their fifth win of the season on the road.
Exeter’s away form, however, is in stark contrast to their form at St James’ Park, where Tisdale’s men haven’t tasted victory since April, but the experienced boss is confident that should change soon.
He said: “There are a lot of people that want that kind of performance at home, me included, and the players are ready for it, it’s coming.
“It’s not a surprise, we’ve got some nice form away from home.”
After a tough start to the season, with injury troubles across the back four, Exeter have name moved up to 18th in League Two, but suffered another casualty during Saturday’s victory when young ‘keeper Christy Pym suffered a nasty cut to his knee.
“He’s come out with a 50-50 at the feet of Kevin Ellison and got there first and Kevin Ellison got there second,” Tisdale said.
“He’s taken a stud above the knee and got a very nasty gash with some really considerable stitches.
“There was not a cat in hell’s chance of him continuing.”
