EXETER’S SLUMP IS A PUZZLE TO TEAM
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.”
