The result did little for the Grecians in their quest for promotion as they slipped down to seventh place in the table, with the result their first goalless stalemate in 49 games.

But the City chief had no qualms with the effort of his players, who played into a blinding sun in the first half and on an absolute bog of a pitch.

"It was a very difficult game and I think the players did really well," Tisdale said.

"It just didn't happen for us and it makes a nonsense of the comments we had on Monday night (when Exeter lost 1-0 to Torquay and played a 4-6-0 formation) about not playing with an out-and-out striker when we had three times the shots on goal on Monday night.

"The conditions were incredibly difficult and we played against 11 very tough players. We played against a ridiculous sun in that first half and (captain) Danny Coles needs to win a toss sooner or later!

"We played against the referee and we played against a lot of supporters that do not believe in the side. When you put those things together, it makes things incredibly difficult.

"I said to the players at half-time that I was really pleased with them because they stood up and they weren't pushed around. They defended the box extremely well again - that is one goal we have conceded in open play this year now - and we had a couple of shots at goal, which was a fraction of the shots we had on Monday."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
