City ready for the challenge
Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale is in ebullient mood ahead of today's crucial Blue Square Premier promotion play off second leg against Torquay United, which kicks off at Plainmoor at 12.30pm. There's a 1-2 deficit to overturn, but thankfully no 'away goals' rule. If things are even at 90 minutes, it's extra time and then penalties. I'll be there, biting my nails. The Grecians have no fresh suspension or injury concerns and will hopefully be boosted by the return of Steve Basham after a calf injury. More decisiveness up front is vital. City were clearly the better footballing team in the first leg, but were done in by lack of finishing, a disallowed offside goal that wasn't, and a goalkeeping goof.
