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.

"When you go two goals up, you know there'll be a shift, but we stuck at it and everyone played their part.

"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."
