Tisdale praises history makers

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale praised his side after they clinched a club-record tenth away win of the season at in-form Morecambe.

Top scorer Jamie Cureton got the ball rolling with a fine goal in the 62nd minute when he beat Will Haining to Tommy Doherty's superb through ball and slid an effort past Shrimps' keeper Barry Roche from just inside the box.

The second goal came four minutes from time when Jimmy Keohane found space down the right and crossed to the far post for Davies to slide the ball past Roche from 12 yards out.

Cureton put the gloss on a historic result two minutes into injury time with another top quality finish, hammering the ball past Roche from an acute angle after being found by Mark Molesley.

Tisdale said: "There were some good individual performances but we played as a team and everyone deserves a huge amount of credit.

"This is always a tough place to come and to win the game so convincingly was excellent. It was a terrific performance, very competent and very strong. Everyone did their jobs and we always looked solid and it is another good win for us.

"It is great to have a record under our belts but it only really matters if we go on to reach our ambitions this year, which is promotion. The signs are promising and hopefully we can maintain that run at home."
