EM­MANUEL Oyeleke ad­mits he’s been sur­prised by the rise of Jor­dan Till­son this sea­son, but hopes to fol­low his lead and be­come an Ex­eter City reg­u­lar.

Till­son, 22, only played five games for the Gre­cians last sea­son, but was given his chance this term due to in­juries to Jor­dan Moore-Tay­lor and David Noble in cen­tral de­fence.

In con­trast, Oyeleke’s chances have been more spo­radic, but the de­fender is keen to take op­por­tu­ni­ties that come his way.

“Tilly’s a great ex­am­ple of what can hap­pen by do­ing the right things, day in, day out,” said Oyeleke. “I don’t think he’d have thought that he’d play this many games.”
