Exeter City manger Paul Tisdale: Expect more Keohane goals

MANAGER Paul Tisdale says Jimmy Keohane is capable of getting more goals for Exeter City after breaking his duck in the 2-1 win away at York City on Saturday.

Koehane has started the last three games for City following Liam Sercombe's ankle injury, which he picked up in the 2-2 draw at home to Barnet.

And Tisdale feels after netting his first goal for the club, there is more to come from the Kilkenny-born midfielder.

"He has earned his goal," said Tisdale. "He is someone who can score goals.

"He has been a regular scorer for our reserves over the last year or so.

"It was a surprise to me that he hadn't scored (before York), but hopefully now he has scored one, he will score more regularly because he is certainly capable of it."

Prior to his recent run in the side, Keohane had only made four starts this season.

However, he has impressed on numerous occasions as a substitute, most notably against Gillingham when he won a late penalty, and he admits he is delighted with how his season is going.

"I have been pleased with how I have been doing in the last few games, and hopefully we can keep up our good form away from home and improve at home," said Keohane.

"Hopefully that will keep us at the top end of League Two, and we will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season."

Speaking about his goal against York City, Keohane added: "I saw Kev (Amankwaah) go down the right wing and when he got the cross in, I saw Flynny (John O'Flynn) go to the near post.

"He just about missed it and I drifted in at the back stick as there was a lot of space there.

"I just concentrated on keeping the ball on target and thankfully it ended up going in.

"I didn't know what to do next as it was my first goal. I was just delighted to get my first goal."
