The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Luke Baker

DEAN Moxey might be an Ex­eter City leg­end but boss Paul Tisdale has re­vealed he won’t be rush­ing the de­fender back for a sec­ond de­but with the Gre­cians.

Ex­eter-born Moxey re­turned to St James Park af­ter eight years away, the 31-year-old hav­ing left the Devon side back in 2009 to join Derby.

The 31-year-old left-back has had spells with the Rams, Crys­tal Palace and Bolton, but his fi­nal sea­son with the lat­ter was ham­pered by nig­gling in­juries in the sec­ond half of the cam­paign.

He has yet to ap­pear for Ex­eter this sea­son, but Tisdale ex­plained that he is back in train­ing and try­ing to get up to speed.

But with Craig Wood­man hav­ing im­pressed so far, Tisdale is not go­ing to rush Moxey.

“He’s ob­vi­ously a bit be­hind ev­ery­one else but he’s in full train­ing. I’m cer­tainly not in a hurry to push him into the team. The play­ers in there are do­ing very, very well,” said Tisdale.

“Craig Wood­man played ex­tremely well (last week), so I don’t have a need to rush that process.

“He’s cer­tainly not far away from play­ing but I don’t re­ally see at the mo­ment why I should rush that process.”

RE­TURN: Dean Moxey
