It was our day - Tisdale

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale admitted it was a great day for the club after the Grecians pulled off a stunning 2-0 win over League One leaders Leeds.

Two goals from highly-rated midfielder Ryan Harley sent United crashing to only their second league defeat of the season and handed Exeter just reward for a committed performance.

"I think we deserved the victory," said Tisdale. "I think we were definitely the better side in the first quarter of the game, we got ourselves in front and we managed to hold on."

He added: "There are arguments to discuss whether we were the better side generally, but sometimes you just have to hang on for a result and it was clear after about 50 minutes that that was going to be the case.

"We managed to get a second, but it was a good day for everyone connected with this football club. We scored two terrific goals, but the first goal was symptomatic of that first quarter where we crossed it early and did to Leeds what they do to most sides.

"The second goal is what we expect from Ryan, but when he scored with his head I think we knew it was going to be our day."
