EX­ETER’S SLUMP IS A PUZ­ZLE TO TEAM

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By An­drew Law­ton

JACK STACEY says Ex­eter City must redis­cover their kil­ler in­stinct af­ter ad­mit­ting the en­tire squad have been left scratch­ing their heads over their poor run of re­sults.

The 20-year-old mid­fielder – on-loan from Read­ing – says the dif­fer­ence be­tween per­for­mance and re­sult has left the St James Park dress­ing room a strange place to be.

With Devon ri­vals Plymouth fly­ing at the op­po­site end of the ta­ble, the Gre­cians could be for­given for be­ing down in the dumps, but Stacey in­sists con­fi­dence in Paul Tis­dale’s team re­mains high.

“We’re just lack­ing maybe a bit of luck or that kil­ler touch at the mo­ment, but we’re all con­fi­dent in the dress­ing room that it’s go­ing to come soon,” Stacey said.

“It’s re­ally weird. If we were play­ing badly, we’d be in the dress­ing room and ev­ery­one would be shout­ing, but we’re in there won­der­ing how we lost.

“We know Ex­eter City’s not a club that should be near the bottom.

“You can’t look at any­one and say they haven’t given their best, as we know ev­ery­one is.”
