The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW - By Dan Barnes

EX­ETER boss Paul Tisdale wants fans to keep bang­ing the drum – both fig­u­ra­tively and lit­er­ally – to cheer their team to a play-off spot.

The Grecians are one of a swathe of teams in a scrap for the top seven and man­ager Tisdale said: “They (the Ex­eter play­ers) like the drum­ming, they like the noise, they like that con­stant rhythm to the game.

“It prob­a­bly drowns out the one or two who are a bit ner­vous and a bit anx­ious, so that’s cer­tainly the best at­mos­phere we can play in.

“When it goes quiet, you can hear the odd frus­tra­tion or ner­vous­ness, but when you get the drums go­ing – and the noise from the Big Bank – it pushes the play­ers along.

“It cre­ates a rhythm and we’re cer­tainly at our best when that at­mos­phere’s in the ground.”

Tisdale was also keep to en­cour­age sup­port­ers to keep their views pos­i­tive.

The Grecians boss added: “Give as much en­cour­age­ment as you can, and keep the at­mos­phere.”
