Chris Wilder gives his reaction to last nigiht's draw with Exeter

Last night's goalless draw with Exeter City left United in fourth place in Sky Bet League Two. After the game we caught up with United manager Chris Wilder, who told us:

'It was a decent game of football. I thought it was just lacking a goal, from us especially. I was pleased with the way we played overall for the full 90 minutes. We got in and around their penalty area more than they did to us. I don’t think Clarkey’s really had anything to do in the second half and we kept asking the question. It was pretty similar to the second half at Accrington really. We created quite a bit, we just lacked that final pass and that little bit of quality in and around the box.'

Although the game was fairly even, United created the better chances, especially in the second half, a point with which Wilder agrees:

'We missed a couple of good chances as well: a header six yards out and a couple of other bits and pieces. Tight games are decided by fine margins and we just didn’t get that break or show that little bit of quality that we have done. We’ve not scored in two games now and we’ve created possibly more chances than we have done for quite a while. We wanted to play well at home and we’ve done that. We’ve done well in a tight game against a good side.'

United were second in the table with five minutes remaining, but results elsewhere ensured they remained fourth. On Saturday United travel to Wimbledon with all tickets in the away end already sold out. If you missed out you can still listen to the match exclusively on Yellow Player, or follow the game minute by minute on Twitter via @OUFClive or on The Wall on this site.
