Gary Caldwell: Exeter City boss taking positives from Bristol Rovers loss

Exeter City boss Gary Caldwell says his side must take the positives from their 1-0 loss at home to Bristol Rovers.

The defeat ended a three-game unbeaten run for City who created a number of good chances to score after Brandon Aguilera's early opener.

"It's a frustrating day, but I think we've been on a good run," he said.

"We have to keep the positives from this game and the run we've been on and try and take that into Tuesday night," Caldwell told BBC Radio Devon.

Having slipped into the relegation places after a 13-game winless run, Exeter have won four and drawn two of their subsequent nine matches.

It has seen them rise as high as 14th in League One, although Saturday's loss saw them drop two places.

"A good run has to become a better run by adding more games into that," Caldwell said.

"Today was a big disappointment, we should have got something from the game that continues that momentum and we didn't.

"So we have to regroup, there is a big squad now, that creates healthy competition and we have to look at that for Tuesday night to pick a team to come out here and get a win at home."
