Paul Tisdale: Focused on next match

The Grecians lost the Devon derby 1-0 against Plymouth and suffered a last minute 2-1 defeat to Rochdale.

However, Tisdale's side remain in the top six, three points clear of seventh-placed Fleetwood, and have a game in hand over their promotion rivals.

"We've had two terribly disappointing days, but there's no point crying over it," Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon.

"We lost the games, but we're still in the play-off zone, we're in a good position and it's about the next game."

It is the first time City have suffered successive defeats since October but Tisdale is backing his players to respond in the right manner.

"I'm asking a lot of certain players, but I have to back them, we have to back each other," he added.

"The players and I will give everything we can to get us over the line and into the play-offs."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
