BBC match report:-
Exeter moved out of the relegation zone with a well-deserved victory over mid-table Walsall.
The home side scored with their first attack when Matt Taylor headed in Ryan Harley's delivery at the back post.
Harley missed a great chance to extend their lead before making amends with a penalty after a foul on Barry Corr.
Walsall got a goal back when a long throw found its way to Julian Gray, who side-footed home, and they pressed for the equaliser but Exeter held firm.
Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale speaks to BBC Radio Devon:
"I am very pleased with everything they did today.
"We had great support and I think there's 5,500 people leaving happy today.
"We're getting more and more pragmatic, we've been efficient, today at times there was a real pattern to our play."
