Exeter boss Paul Tisdale felt his side could have taken all three points after being forced to settle for a 2-2 draw at Grimsby.

Nathan Jarman struck twice for Grimsby after Marcus Stewart had put the Grecians in front after eight minutes, before Ryan Harley levelled the scores 13 minutes from time.

Tisdale said: "It was a terrific game of football, one of the best I have seen in recent weeks."

He continued: "To be honest I feel disappointed, I think there were three points for us there. It was nice to come back from 2-1 down but I feel we have lost two points.

"We did play extremely well in the first half. We passed it better than our opponents. We conceded a really poor goal on the stroke of half-time and my perception of the first 10 minutes of the second half was that we looked a bit sorry for ourselves.

"We got a terrific goal through Ryan and in the last five minutes I was thinking we could win this. If we had nicked it it would have been just reward for a lot of good play."
