WATKINS IS ON THE OF­FEN­SIVE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

DE­CEM­BER might not have been par­tic­u­larly kind in the league to Ex­eter City but Ol­lie Watkins thinks if his side stick to their at­tack­ing guns then things will start to look up in 2016.

The Gre­cians ended the year with a 2-0 de­feat at home to AFC Wim­ble­don af­ter a 3-0 Box­ing Day loss to Ox­ford United.

How­ever, even with a host of first-team play­ers out of ac­tion,Watkins thinks Ex­eter have the tools and spirit to turn things around.

“We have got the play­ers and most man­agers, when they don’t have enough play­ers, will play safe, but we kept play­ing at­tack­ing foot­ball and it will work for us soon,” said the 20-year-old.
